The Xperia family of devices by Sony has is very large, consisting of multiple devices. The company has released quite a few Xperia smartphones so far, and the Xperia X Performance is the first one to receive Android 7.0 Nougat. The update comes in a timely manner, shortly after the HTC 10 and LG G5 flagships became the first non-Google handsets to receive Nougat in the US.

According to XPERIA Blog, the firmware build number is 39.2.A.0.327, and the targeted devices carry the model numbers F8131 (Xperia X Performance) and F8132 (Xperia X Performance Dual). There is no word on the changes, but the standard Nougat features should all be included, such as split-screen mode, improved Doze mode, direct reply from notifications, customizable quick settings, and more.

In addition to the above, the new firmware should also come with the latest security patches from Google. Unfortunately, there is no changelog available yet, but we will get back to it as soon as the update becomes official.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
