Re: Nougat 7.0 for Sony Xperia™ X

Unfortunately we are unable to confirm specific date for any particular firmware release due to the nature of the approval process. If there is a particular update you are wanting to update to, it may not be available for your exact handset.

 

As the updates are customised by multiple parties before being released, updates can become available for one handset before another handset, even if they are both the same model.

 

Once the update is customised by Sony it would then be passed on to your service provider to make any required adjustments for their network.

 

Please be aware that if your handset has originated outside your region this can also cause a delay in the release.

 

Once the software is ready to be downloaded on your unit, you will receive a notification on your phone advising of the option to update.

 

For further information regarding the approval process please see here.

But if for others region is out for the same model software update, only for my region is not out, i will get update anyway, just need to wait, i'm right? Is any different between dual and single model versions? I'm asking coz when i had single smartphones from Sony i got update after their released - week, two week period. Now i'm waiting with dual C5 Ultra version Marshmallow about three months... How many time going update process? Maybe i'm waiting in vain? My version of software update is NOBA (Scandinavia countries/Baltic countries)? Thanks in advance for answer Winking Face

It seems that Sony is aiming to be the first to release 7.1.1 other than Google

Re: Android 7.0

Samsung are waiting for 7.1.1 before they release Nougat to the S7. That's a good move, I'd rather keep MM until a totally stable version of Nougat is available.

Embrace Android, you can use other lockscreen apps that fit your needs.
