As soon as Google started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat, Sony wasted no time in releasing the list of its smartphones that will be getting the firmware update. However, the company didn’t reveal the timeline for these updates at the time. The company has now reportedly revealed the timeline for the rollout at its Slovakia press conference.
The software update will be first making its way to company’s flagship smartphones Xperia XZ and Xperia X Performance around October and will then roll out to other smartphones, as per a report by Slovakian website MojAndroid.
Smartphones Xperia X and Xperia X Compact will be receiving the update around November while the Xperia Z5 series, Xperia Z3+, and Xperia Z4 Tablet will be getting the update around December, as per a company slide. The last batch of smartphones to receive the update will be Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra, which are slated to get Android 7.0 Nougat in early 2017.
The list of devices mentioned at the press conference includes all devices that were listed by the company earlier. It should be noted that only these devices from Sony will be getting the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
Interestingly, Sony Xperia E5, which was launched in May this year, will not be getting the update. Further, the Sony Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z4v, released in the second quarter of 2015, have been left out of Nougat treatment by the company as well.[“source-gadgets.ndtv”]
