In a previous article, we’ve informed you that Sony has seeded the Android 7.0 Nougat update to its Xperia Z5 family. The software is now being pushed to the Xperia Z3+ and its Dual version.
The Japanese company has started 2017 on the right foot, updating more devices to the latest Android Nougat than any other manufacturer. Now that the entire Xperia Z5 family has received the update that carries the firmware number 32.3.A.0.372, the same software is now being pushed to two other Xperia devices, the Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z3+ Dual, which were released in June 2015 with Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, but received version 6.0.1 Marshmallow in the meantime.
Users have reported that they’ve also received the December security patch which, according to the official change-log, it comes with battery life improvements. Nougat is definitely a big upgrade from Marshmallow because it brings many interesting new features such as Multi-window support that was firstly seen on Samsung’s flagships and which allows users to run two apps at the same time on the same screen. Also, notifications from an application will be bundled into a single alert and it will be easier to reply to messages from apps such as Hangouts, directly from the home screen.
If you want to learn more about the Xperia Z3+ and Z3+ Dual, here are their specs: they measure 146 x 72 x 6.9 mm and weight 144 grams; they’re dust proof and water resistant, and their display has a diagonal with a size of 5.2-inch and supports a Full HD resolution.
