The Sony Xperia X Performance Android Nougat update is currently being rolled out to users in select regions. Sony has stayed true to their promise of delivering the Nougat update to users. Other smartphones will also get the update soon.
Sony started the Android N Beta program for the Xperia X Performance back in August. It has taken them quite some time to go from the Developer build to the final public build. The update is rolling out over-the-air and in select regions as of now.
Sony Xperia X Performance
The Xperia X Performance is Sony's flagship this year, apart from the Xperia XZ, and also the first smartphone in line to receive the Android Nougat update. The phone features a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB RAM, 23 megapixel rear camera and a 13 megapixel front camera. It also features an all metal build with dual front-facing speakers and a 2700 mAh battery.
Sony Xperia X Performance Android 7.0 Nougat Update
According to XperiaBlog, the Xperia X Performance Android Nougat firmware build number is 39.2.A.0.327. Currently, the international l(F8131) and dual-SIM(F8132) variants of the smartphone are getting the update. Not to worry though, as the update for other models should be dropping in the next few days.
Other Xperia devices that will get the Android Nougat update include the Xperia X, Xperia XA, Xperia XA Ultra, the Z5 series, Z4 Tablet and Z3+. The updates for these smartphones should be available in early 2017, as per Android Police.
Sony is among the very few smartphone manufacturers who have started rolling out the Android 7.0 update for its devices.
