It’s always a sunny day when your device gets the latest Android version. We can happily announce that two more Sony handsets have freshly joined the ranks of devices that received Android 7.0 Nougat. The two devices in question are Sony Xperia X and Xperia X Compact, for which Sony started the roll-out. These two aren’t the first Sony smartphones to get the latest Google software, as we have previously seen the XZ and X Performance dawn the Nougat cape for the first time back in November.
Twitter seems to have become a very popular platform for developers of all content types to announce or reveal new stuff about their products and services. Sony is also a part of that developer group since it announced the promotion of Xperia X and Xperia X Compact to Nougat users via its Twitter account.
In the tweet, Sony advises users to check their devices and stay alert for when that long awaited notification finally drops. It is important to do a local check for the update because, according to Sony, the update rollout is phased.
Although the update for the two devices has just been announced by Sony, there are groups of users claiming that the update went live for some devices a week ago. It seems that these devices are spread across all other regions outside of the US. Reports put Android Nougat operating Xperia X and Xperia X Compact devices in countries like Turkey, Australia, Vietnam or Thailand. Even Latin America seems to have been hit by the subtle update.
Regardless of how quick your device will receive the update, if you’re a Sony Xperia X/X Compact user a large amount of stress has just been lifted as now it is just a matter of time for you before you can finally roll with Android 7.0 Nougat.
Hopefully, more devices and models will join soon and transition to Nougat.
