Update (7/5): Just recently, Sony paused the Android 7.0 Nougat rollout to the Xperia XA and XA Ultra due to “inconsistencies related to the over-the-air delivery system”. Now, according to Xperia Blog, Sony has resumed the Nougat rollout for both devices.
Both updates are arriving as slightly newer build numbers compared to the original Nougat builds. The newer build for the XA now comes in at build number 33.3.A.0.131, while the new XA Ultra build comes in at 36.1.A.0.182.
