Xperia XZ and X Performance are the first Sony devices to get Android 7.1.1

Sony has been pretty quick with Android updates recently, at least for its highest profile handsets. The Xperia XZ and X Performance were the first Sony phones to see an update to Android 7.0 Nougat, and that was just 3 months after Google's Pixel and Nexus devices received it. Now, Sony is building on this good work by bringing the Android 7.1.1 update to both its flagships.

OnePlus is silent about Nougat for the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X, and owners are pissed

The OnePlus 3 and 3T were some of the best phones of last year, especially given their low prices. Both phones were updated to Nougat at the end of 2016, being among the first non-Google devices to receive the new version.

Android platform distribution for April 2017 shows another solid gain for Nougat

Nougat is still just picking up steam, but it had another solid month of growth. The combined share of 7.0 and 7.1 is at nearly 5%.

Android Nougat OTA rolling out to the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ on Sprint

Android Nougat OTA rolling out to the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ on Sprint

Samsung promised that the S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Note 5 would be getting Nougat in the first half of 2017 and it's starting to fulfill its end of the deal now. Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ devices on Sprint are one of the first to benefit from an OTA update that takes their devices up to Android 7.0.

If you own one of these two late 2015 flagships on Sprint, check manually for an update as it might be waiting for you without having surfaced the notification. And regardless of which one of the two you have, you should expect the OTA to weigh around 1.3-1.4GB so you better be on a fast and unlimited connection to download it.
