With Google officially taking Android 7.0 Nougat out of beta and releasing it to Nexus devices on Monday, other manufacturers are now starting to let their users know when they too can experience the latest sweet offering from Mountain View. Yesterday, Sony announced which of its smartphones will be updated to Nougat, and while a good number of phones are named, there is at least one surprising omission.

The next version of Android is finally upon us in a stable form ready for public use, meaning you could be using Android 7.0 Nougat on your phone or tablet as early as today.

As it turns out, the N stands for Nougat.
