Sony Xperia XZ Android 7.0 Features

These phones were supposed to get the update last month, however, it took a little longer. The beta program for Android N started in August this year, so Sony did take a while to deliver.

The Xperia XZ Android 7.0 update firmware carries the build number 39.2.A.0.327 and is currently available for both the international (F8331) and dual-SIM (F8332) models.
The update brings several new features such as improved notifications, better battery life, multi-window mode, quick reply, faster shortcuts and other performance improvements. Apart from these new features, Sony has also included a new simpler Homescreen and an updated messaging app.

Other phones yet to get the Nougat update include; Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia X, Xperia XA, Xperia XA Ultra and Xperia X Compact. As per PhoneArena, the updates for Xperia X and XA should arrive later this month, followed by updates for other devices.
According to Sony, the Xperia XZ Android 7.0 update is being rolled out in phases, so it may take a few days to a week to reach all users. When the update is ready to download, the user will be notified. It is important to be connected to a strong Wi-Fi network or Cellular network before downloading.
