    Introducing Android™ 7.0 Nougat

    Take advantage of the fresh new features and streamlined performance of the latest Android operating system. See how we’re bringing the best of Nougat to your Xperia®.

    Which device do I need?

    We’re making Nougat available to Xperia® XZ, X Compact, XA Ultra, XA, X Performance, X, Z5, Z5 Compact, Z5 Premium, Z4 Tablet, and Z3+. Availability timings will vary depending on model and region. Find out more about your device on the Support page.

    So what’s new?

    Nougat’s your ticket to the latest features and functionality from both Sony and Android™. Explore the software’s standout improvements below.

    Multi-window support

    You can now run two apps simultaneously in a new split-screen view—ideal for keeping vital information close by. And, when you’re multitasking, just double tap to switch between your two most recent apps.

    Battery that knows when it’s needed

    Doze is now more intelligent on the move, saving charge whenever your smartphone’s tucked away in your pocket or bag. And our STAMINA mode has three new power saving levels to choose from, automatically adjusting your settings to keep you going.

    More meaningful messages

    When words alone aren’t enough, let your creativity do the talking. Nougat lets you shoot and send videos, photos, audio, and more directly from the Messaging app—so the perfect reply is always at your fingertips.
