Sony Xperia XA Ultra is getting updated to Android Nougat

Vlad, 15 June 2017

The latest smartphone to be on the receiving end of an update to Android Nougat is Sony's Xperia XA Ultra from last year. The handset launched in July with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and now the time has finally come for it to get a taste of last year's Android release.

At the moment, only two versions of the XA Ultra have been lucky enough to receive the update, namely the ones bearing the model numbers F3211 and F3212. That said, we expect the over-the-air rollout to make its way to all of the different XA Ultra variations in due course.

After applying the update (once your phone notifies you that it's available), you'll be on build number 36.1.A.0.179. This should be the same for all XA Ultra versions.
