Sony Xperia Z5 lineup gets Android Nougat
Only a few days after the new firmware with build number 32.3.A.0.372 got certified, Sony started to roll out Android Nougat to the Xperia Z5 lineup. According to XPERIA Blog, "The new update is currently live across select variants of the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium as of writing, but we expect it will shortly arrive on the Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 Tablet."
The update comes with all the Nougat goodies one would expect, including split-screen mode, improved notifications, enhanced Doze mode, customizable Quick Settings, quick app switching, and more. Sony's Xperia Home launcher now has Google Now integration and promises to be "smarter and more personal" than before. At last, the front camera now gets a self-timer button, and Sony promises improved battery life.
Those who did not get the OTA notification could check manually for the update as usual. Since this is the first Nougat-based firmware for these handsets, users should also be aware that once the update is complete, there is no turning back to Marshmallow.
