Sony is taking sign ups for a Xperia X Performance Android 7.0 beta

Sony has relaunched its Xperia Beta Program, this time with a pre-release Android 7.0 Nougat build for the Xperia X Performance.

Sony’s Xperia Beta Program had been a great way for Xperia enthusiasts to help the company test out upcoming features, iron out bugs, and have a bit of an input into the company’s software direction. The program came to an end for Marshmallow testing back in July, but now it’s back with the imminent arrival of Nougat.

The company’s latest flagship, the Xperia X Performance, has just been added to the program, whereby owners will be able to test out a pre-release version of Android 7.0 Nougat. Unfortunately for some, Sony is only accepting sign ups from a small number of regions. Users can download the Xperia Beta Program app if they live in the Nordics, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Iceland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, or the Netherlands. You’ll have to act fast though, as Sony says that spaces are limited.


Last time around, Sony launched its Marshmallow beta program for its older Xperia Z3 range first, before adding in phones from the Z5 and other ranges. It’s possible that Sony will make an early Android 7.0 build available to more Xperia X and other handsets at some point in the future too. But for now, there’s been no word on if or when this will happen.
