Sony rolls out Android 7.1.1 Nougat to Xperia XZ and Xperia X Performance

Sony has rolled out the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to the Xperia XZ and Xperia X Performance. The update arrives with build number 41.2.A.2.199 and delivers the April 1 Android Security patches.

The news arrives via Sony fansite Xperia Blog which states that the update comes with the typical Android 7.1 features, but doesn’t reference any Sony-specific inclusions. One feature we should mention, however, is Android Nougat’s app shortcuts: these are available for the Xperia X Performance and Xperia XZ, though only with a compatible launcher (they don’t work with the native Xperia Home launcher).

Sony to stay in smartphone market, bets big on next paradigm shift

The Sony Xperia XZ and X Performance were among the first devices to receive the upgrade to Android Nougat last year around early December and it’s good to see Sony keep up the pace with the 7.1.1 rollout. The Sony Z5 series, meanwhile, started to get Nougat around six weeks after the XZ and X Performance (though the rollout was temporarily halted due to bugs) — this could be an indicator of when you can expect to see 7.1.1 roll out to that family of devices.

You should see a notification for the update arrive to your handset soon but you can visit the software update page to check if it’s already available.

Deal: Sony Xperia X Performance can be yours for $367.09 on Amazon (25% off)

At MWC 2016, Sony took the wraps off the Xperia X Performance, which retailed for $700 when launched. The high-end smartphone is now on sale over on Amazon and can be yours for exactly $367.09. It normally sells for between $450 and $500, which means you can save around $100 (or 25 percent).

The smartphone is unlocked and comes in Lime Gold, though the other colors aren’t available as part of this deal.

It might be more than a year old, but the Xperia X Performance is still a great smartphone. Especially at this price point. It sports a 5-inch Full HD display and is powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset. You’ll find a 23 MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture on the back and a selfie snapper that has a 13 MP sensor on the front.
