Owners of Sony’s Xperia X smartphone in Europe who are also signed up for the “Concept for Android” program can download the first update for the software since it first rolled out a couple of weeks ago for Android 7.0 Nougat.

In this case, the build number for this update is build number 38.1.A.0.342 (NBD91K4). It includes the latest November Android security updates from Google, along with adding X-Reality support in the Album app, and also includes new versions of Sony’s Xperia Home and Xperia Transfer apps. As you might expect, there are also some bug fixes in this Nougat-based release, including a new version of the fingerprint driver and bug fixes for the camera and FM Radio features.

Additionally, there’s a known issue with the updated Xperia Home app and icon packs, and users should remove those packs from the Home settings before they download the latest Concept update. If you want to be on the cutting edge of software for the Xperia X, and you live in Europe, you can get these “Concept for Android” updates by downloading the Sony Concept Installer app right now from the Google Play Store.
