The report comes from the unofficial Xperia blog, but its stories do tend to be very accurate when it comes to these kinds of updates. It states the build number for this update is 34.2.A.0.266. Sony is rolling it out in select regions so far, including Australia, Latin America, Middle East, Russia, Turkey, Thailand and Vietnam. However, the update will likely makes its way to the rest of those phones, including the US, over the next several days.

Sony has already rolled out Nougat updates for the Xperia X Performance and the Xperia XZ phones. The company has been making Nougat available for early adopters as part of its “Concept for Android” testing program in Europe for the past month or so.

Do you own the Sony Xperia X or X Compact and, if so, have you started downloading and installing the Android 7.0 Nougat update? Let us know your thoughts and impressions in the comments.
