The rumors do not were wrong and Monday August 22, Google released the update to Android 7.0 href=”https://www.xatakandroid.com/sistema-operativo/novedades-android-7-0-nougat”> for the Nexus range. However, most Android users are not so lucky with this updates and it will normally wait months-that is extended when the manufacturer decides not turn stop supporting something that happens more often than we would like.
Sony has been one of the brands to offer a programa Android 7.0 beta on your smartphone star, so they could quite ahead this year and the new version offer before the competition, the problem is to devices that will come. The Japanese brand has already unveiled its roadmap for the update to Android 7.0, except for the Xperia XA and XA Ultra, have focused exclusively on high-end, leaving many users off
If you do not have a flagship store, no update
This is the message that seems to be transmitting Sony regarding Android 7.0 Nougat, is that The list of devices that have the new version is reduced only to high-end devices, and not all be so lucky. Here is the list of compatible models:
- Sony Xperia Z3 +
- Sony Xperia Tablet Z4
- Sony Xperia Z5
- Sony Xperia Z5 Compact
- Sony Xperia Z5 Premium
- Sony Xperia X
- Sony Xperia X Performance
- Sony Xperia XA
- Sony XA Xperia Ultra

how could it be otherwise, the Z5 series and new Xperia X receive the update, but the new version does not will penetrate beyond these ranges, unless Sony decides to include more models in the future, which we doubt enough.
When comparing the list of upgradeable terminals with the año past, note that Sony have put the scissors without a hair cut. It left out terminals as Xperia Xperia C5 or Ultra M5, which were announced just over a year ago now.
The truth is that the mobile division of Sony not going through their best moment and such decisions do not benefit them at all. Users want complete devices and Sony meets here, but if we are forced to resort to the ROM shift cooked in a year, there are other options on the market that also provide a good hardware with a more robust software support.
However, one should not throw stones at Sony because, unfortunately, the updates is a widespread Android problem. the upgrade process is not easy, especially when there are visual layers through, and many manufacturers choose to stop supporting terminals that have just completed the year. So far it seems that the fragmentación It is and will remain a problem linked to Android do not know if someday deliver
