Sony commenced the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Xperia XA and XA Ultra just over a week ago, after a long wait. However, Sony Mobile pulled the Nougat update for these devices around a week ago with little notice or explanation.
We reached out to Sony to find out the reasons for halting the update, who confirmed that the update has been temporarily paused due to small “inconsistencies related to the over-the-air delivery system”. Sony has reassured that the update will start again as soon as possible – we’ll keep you posted once it kicks off again.
Sony’s statement on pulled Nougat update for Xperia XA and XA Ultra
“We’ve temporarily paused the Android 7.0 upgrade for Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra due to minor performance inconsistencies related to the over-the-air delivery system. Regardless of whether a user has been able to successfully run the upgrade or not, there is no detrimental impact on device performance or loss of existing user data. We’re aiming to re-commence the rollout as soon as possible with a seamless upgrade experience for all users, and will provide a further update in due course.”
