Sony Xperia Android 7.0 Nougat Updates, Detailed!

I know that - just like me - many of my Pinoy blog readers are big Sony Xperia fans.

I mean, how can you not fall in love with Sony Xperia handsets? Always well-crafted, these smartphones are a joy to hold and behold. Not to mention, their main cameras are always top-notch and the touch response of the display is right up there with the iPhone. It's true.

Sony Xperia Android Nougat

If you own any of the more recent Sony Xperia flagship level releases, you'd be glad to know that the legendary Japanese tech giant has already confirmed that your device will definitely receive Android 7.0 Nougat firmware upgrade.

Quoting the company (source), "As you’ve probably seen Google unveil Android version 7.0, Nougat we’ve seen lots of questions on our upgrade roadmap and plans – so, here goes: We will make Android 7.0 Nougat available for: Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia X, Xperia XA, Xperia XA Ultra and Xperia X Performance."

Despite the Sony's recent decision to focus its efforts more towards creating industry-leading handsets in the midrange echelon, this announcement proves that Team Xperia is not letting go or forgetting its responsibilities towards consumers who supported and bought their previous high-end models.

Now, if you own a 2015 C-Series or M-Series mid-tier Xperia release, you shouldn't fret. According to Sony, they are 'working hard to bring this major update to as many of our devices as possible, as quickly as they can' -- so I think there's hope that models not included in the initial list could get Nougat too. They even said that they are excited to let users experience the new features and functionality as well as the improvements that they've implemented on the Xperia interface.

So when exactly should owners of the above-mentioned Xperia smartphones expect to get Android 7.0 update? No word on that yet. "We'll be sharing more soon; So stay tuned," Sony said.
