Sony Xperia XA gets Android Nougat

Sony Xperia XA Android smartphone gets Nougat update
Sony Xperia XA
Not long ago, the Japanese brand released the Nougat firmware update for the Xperia XA Ultra handsets. Now, the time has come for the Xperia XA to get the same treatment, one year since its release with Marshmallow on board.

Android Nougat has been around for various handsets for more than a few months already, so Sony Xperia users will surely be relived to hear that their handsets finally get a major software update. The Xperia XA Ultra got updated recently, and now the Xperia XA finally receives the same treatment.

Sony has quite a few Xperia XA models on the market, and the update targets all of them. The list of models to get the new firmware includes the single SIM F3111, F3113, and F3115, as well as the dual SIM F3112 and F3116. The new features should be in line with the pure Nougat release from Google - multi-window support, bundled notifications, new emojis, enhanced Doze mode, and so on.

Those using the one-year-old Xperia XA should get the OTA notification any minute now. Obviously, a manual check is always a good choice for those in a hurry. There are no official update details to talk about yet, but the new firmware should be more than 1 GB in size, so downloading and installing it might take a while.

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.
