Nougat rollout for Xperia XA and XA Ultra has been paused, Sony confirms

Himanshu, 29 June 2017

Nougat for the Sony Xperia XA and XA Ultra started rolling out a couple of weeks ago. But what went largely unnoticed is that the rollout was stopped shortly thereafter. Now, the company has officially confirmed the development, saying it's a temporary pause due to issues with their OTA delivery system.

The Japanese company says it is aiming to restart the rollout process "as soon as possible." Here's the full statement that Sony has issued:

We’ve temporarily paused the Android 7.0 upgrade for Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra due to minor performance inconsistencies related to the over-the-air delivery system. Regardless of whether a user has been able to successfully run the upgrade or not, there is no detrimental impact on device performance or loss of existing user data. We’re aiming to re-commence the rollout as soon as possible with a seamless upgrade experience for all users, and will provide a further update in due course.
