Sony is a company that is known for their versatility in the world of tech, gadgets and overall modern day appliances, as most people associate the brand with top quality and a guarantee of performance. While Sony has branched out to a lot of different categories of devices, it still maintains its prowess and relevance in every field they cover.

Some might know Sony as the PlayStation manufacturer and some might recognize it as a great sound system creator. However, there are many out there that look at Sony and see their Xperia line of smartphones, which identifies itself as a third party smarpthone manufacturer.

The Xperia smartphones are generally viewed as pleasing devices. Some of the latest efforts from the tech company are found within the Sony Xperia XZ and Xperia X Performance models.

But since having the greatest hardware doesn’t amount to much without the complementary software, we should talk about Android Nougat and Sony’s plans for the future in terms of Android updates for its devices.

The Android 7.0 Nougat update has just starting rolling out for various Sony devices, giving its users a first taste of the Android Nougat experience. This is just the beginning if we are to believe Sony, as the manufacturer is aiming to become the first third party handset creator to provide the 7.1.1 update to its customers.

Sony is ready to bet on the success of this operation, and the consumers are the ones that benefit most since they get to experience the most up-to-date version of Android on their Sony daily drives.

It remains to be seen how good on their promise Sony is willing to be. The Xperia XZ handset and older devices as well could largely benefit from the 7.1.1 patch even though changes from previous versions aren’t so accentuated as with the 6.0 Marshmallow – 7.0 Nougat transition.
