Sony Xperia XZ Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 7.1.1 Updates

A while a back in November, we've seen that Samsung Galaxy S7, and S7 Edge went into a beta testing program for Nougat update, but the official version of the OS hasn't yet to come. Other Sony devices also getting the same update also include the Xperia X, Xperia XA, Xperia XA Ultra, Xperia Z5, Xperia X Performance, Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium and Xperia X Compact. The company has chose to bring Android Nougat to its flagships as soon as possible.

This Android Nougat update will give owners of Xperia XZ the chance to work on multiple windows and run two applications at the same time.

One phone ruled the sales charts in the United States in third quarter of 2016: while Android remains the most popular operating system in the U.S., it lost share for the fifth consecutive time and the Apple iPhone 7 was to blame.

The release of the Android 7.0 Nougat update was reportedly done since Sony is aiming to roll out soon the Android 7.1.1 update to the Sony Xperia XZ and other devices.

Google on Tuesday dispatched a new minor version of Android Nougat OS, with the title of "Android 7.1.1 Nougat" to the most of Nexus devices and three Pixel smartphones.

The report on Xperia Blog did not mention the exact date when Sony will start rolling out the new Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but given its strong words, it should be happening in the next few days or weeks for that matter. In next couple of months, the new OS update will be rolled out to other compatible devices.

Sony has yet to officially confirm its Android 7.1.1 Nougat plans, so it might be best to take this news with a grain of salt for now. But it only comes for unlocked variants of the phone first.

Android 7.1.1 Nougat was dropped to Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL and the entire line up of supported Nexus devices (Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C, and General Mobile 4G (Android One) devices) on December 5. As the those devices might be in the beta testing program, and also now run on Android 6.0, it is expected that there will have an Android 7.1.1 treat for them as well.
