Sony Starts Rolling Out Android Nougat Update to Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium
After updating their Xperia X devices to Android 7.0 Nougat, Sony has now started rolling out the Nougat update for its Xperia Z5 series as well.
Several users of the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium are now reporting that they have received an official update notification. The OTA is 1288 MBs in size and is labeled with a build number of 32.3.A.0.372 with the December security patches on board.
As expected from prior Sony builds of Android Nougat, all of the usual Nougat related features such as the Multi-Window mode, improved Doze mode, Vulkan API support and more can be found in this update. Furthermore, Sony’s own additions have made it in this update, including the revamped Xperia Home launcher with built-in Google Now support, a messaging update, and a self-timer button for the front-facing camera for a better selfie experience. As of now, the update is only rolling out for the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium, but it’s expected that the Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z3+, and Xperia Z4 Tablet will receive the update in the near future.
If you’re carrying either an Xperia Z5 or Xperia Z5 Premium, keep an eye out for the OTA update. As is always the case with staged software roll-outs, the update might take some time before it reaches your device.
