It seems like Sony has beaten Samsung to the punch, as they’ve just begun rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the Sony Xperia X Performance.

Join us after the break for details.

According to details obtained by Xperia Blog, the firmware version sits at 39.2.A.0.327. It’s rolling out specifically to the Xperia X Performance (F8131) and X Performance Dual (F8132).

Currently, it’s rolling out in select regions, such as Russia and Thailand, but Sony will slowly open up more regions for the update over the coming days and weeks.

It’s worth mentioning that this update brings the Android security patch level to November 1, 2016. It’s also important to keep in mind that the Sony Xperia X Performance is the first device in a wide array of handsets Sony plans to bring Android 7.0 Nougat to. There are a whole host of others planned to get the update by early 2017 as well.

If you haven’t gotten the update yet for your Xperia X Performance, keep an eye for it in your notification pane. Alternatively, you can keep checking for updates manually in the Settings menu!
