It might be costly for what it brings to the table, at $650 unlocked ($580, if you’re lucky), with just a 5-inch Full HD screen, 3GB RAM, 2,700 mAh battery and no fingerprint scanner stateside, but at least you now know the Sony Xperia X Performance will be among the world’s first smartphones to run Android 7.0.

That’s if you hurry, have no problem tackling the typical bugs and general system instability of an OS pre-release beta version, and also happen to live in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Iceland, Italy, Spain, Portugal or Netherlands.

Xperia X Performance owners in the aforementioned 12 countries across Europe can sign up and try out an unfinished Nougat port before long, following the suit of the Xperia Z3, which was invited to Google’s Android N Developer Preview club several months back.

The difference between the two devices is the much newer flagship officially revives Sony’s own Xperia Beta Program, where you’ll likely be asked to provide software developers feedback both before and after the OTA Android 7.0 Nougat rollout for the X Performance. No words on when it’s supposed to begin as far as the masses are concerned, but first, Nexus phones obviously have to get it, followed by the LG V20.
