Sony Xperia XZ and X Performance receive new security patches
The new firmware fixes a few minor issues, the most noticeable one being the clock reset that occurs after rebooting on some handsets. The update is based on Android 7.0 Nougat and has the security patch level dated January 1.
Although Sony is busy working on the Android 7.1.1 update for its handsets, those who already received version 7.0 continue to get support. The latest such firmware release targets the Xperia XZ and Xperia X Performance, including their dual-SIM variants, and includes Google's January security patch.
The arrival of this update has been reported by more XPERIA Blog users, and it seems there is no change log to talk about at this time. However, it seems that Sony has recently promised to fix an issue that affected some handsets. This issue consists of a reset of the phone's clock after rebooting, so this should be one of the changes. In addition to it, the update also comes with the security patch from Google dated January 1.
After applying the update, the build number of the firmware for the two Xperia handsets mentioned in the beginning should be 39.2.A.0.386.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
