Sony Xperia XA receives Android 7.0 Nougat update too

16 June 2017

Just yesterday Sony's Xperia XA Ultra finally started receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat, almost ten months after Google released that version of the OS. Today the same good news spreads to that handset's smaller sibling, the Xperia XA.

Unlike the rollout for the XA Ultra, which has only reached two of the phone's versions so far, the Nougat update for the XA is currently out for all five variations of this device. We're talking about units bearing the model numbers F3111, F3113, F3115 (all single-SIM), as well as F3112 and F3116 (these being dual-SIM iterations).

As you can see from the screenshot to the left, after you apply the update your Xperia XA will be on build number 33.3.A.0.127. The update comes with the May 5, 2017 security patch level - so it's almost up to date in that regard.
