Was Sony’s leaked Android Nougat update timetable from back September just a little too good to be true? Well, yeah, since October came and went, and the Japanese device manufacturer couldn’t even roll out a public preview of the latest OS build for one of its two recent flagship phones.

But it really didn’t take the Xperia X Performance very long to iron out all beta kinks and spread the 7.0 love to the masses, and already, the newer, slightly beefier and prettier Xperia XZ reportedly follows suit.

That’s right, there are now two different Sony smartphones on Android 7.0 Nougat, at least in “select regions” around the world, both of which launched earlier this year with Marshmallow loaded up. Quite an accomplishment for an OEM not exactly celebrated for its software makeover promptness, considering Samsung is yet to update a single Galaxy model, while HTC and LG each boast one updated phone, and one released with N goodies out the box.

Of course, in a way, you could draw parallels between the Sony Xperia XZ/X Performance duo and the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The latter two devices, remember, are also slated for 7.0 promotions this month. But right now, we must admit we’re rather impressed to see Android Nougat dispatched OTA to single and dual SIM XZ variants. Nicely done, Sony!
