It seems like the Sony Xperia X and the Xperia X Compact are now receiving Android 7.1.1 Nougat update. These two devices launched with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow last year, both devices got updated to Android 7.0 Nougat a while back, and are now receiving Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This report is coming from the Xperia Blog website, and is based on input from the site’s readers. This update will upgrade the build number on these two phones from 34.2.A.2.69 to 34.3.A.0.194.
Now, the source did not release any info regarding the changelog that this update brings, as the changelog is not available just yet, but don’t expect to see that many changes, as even the stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat version did not bring all that many changes to non-Pixel phones. Some improvements when it comes to touch sensitivity are expected to roll out along with this update, and the ‘Night Light’ mode might land on the Xperia X and the Xperia X Compact. Both the Xperia X and the Xperia X Compact are mid-range smartphones, the former arrived back in February last year, while the latter was announced in September 2016. The two devices actually resemble one another quite a bit, their bezels are rather thick, especially above and below the display, though is not that much of an issues considering that they’re both quite compact, the Xperia X sports a 5-inch panel, while the Xperia X Compact features an even smaller, 4.6-inch display.
