Google released the lastest minor Android Nougat update on December 5. Dubbed Android 7.1.1, the new firmware is available for the Google Pixel handset, as well as for older Nexus devices and the Pixel C tablet. The source code became available for manufacturers the same day, and Sony aims to become the first one to join Google and release Android 7.1.1 for its devices.

According to XPERIA Blog, Sony's development team said "this is our (the Concept teams) number 1 priority" when talking about Android 7.1.1. They seem to be very confident that no others will beat them, also adding that "if you spot any other vendor (excluding Google) releasing this faster than us, prepare your rotten tomatoes!"

Once available, the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update should bring a restart option in the power menu and the image keyboard for supported apps, as well as the usual set of tweaks, fixes, and security patches. There is no official launch date yet, but we will keep you posted.

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.
