Sony Restarts Android Nougat Update Rollout For Some Xperia Devices
The rollout of the Android 7.0 Nougat update for Xperia devices will finally happen.
Sony Mobile is at last, re-releasing the Android 7.0 Nougat update for its line of Xperia handsets after the company's first attempt last January failed. Those getting the new firmware build 32.3.A.0.376 include the Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z5 series, and the Xperia Z4 tablet.
The new build comes on the heels of the previous Android Nougat build 32.3.A.0.372 which was suspended shortly after it was released. The January release of the Android Nougat update came to a screeching halt after a number of users reported that their devices encountered varying issues. Some of the more common problems with the update included issues with Bluetooth and audio playback when going through third-party apps. A number of Xperia owners mentioned that their devices failed to connect via Bluetooth after downloading the update. Most of the complaints revolved around the Xperia devices not connecting properly to cars mainly due to the fast draining of the battery.
Sony, through a post on Xperia Blog, said that the links for the FTF firmware of each device will be provided soon. It also encouraged users to share their experiences with the update. One commenter on the Xperia Blog post initially said that there was nothing new with the update. The commenter then backtracked and mentioned that the issue with the Bluetooth and its fast draining battery have been fixed. It remains to be seen though if the new Android 7.0 Nougat update has indeed fixed all its bugs.
Early this month, Google rolled out the Android 7.1.2 Nougat beta for certain Pixel and Nexus devices. Xperia owners may have to wait a little more time before they get the 7.1.2 Nougat update since it is still in beta mode aside from the fact that it is just starting to get the Android 7.0 Nougat version.
