Sony stops Android 7.0 Nougat OTA update for Xperia Z5, Z3+ and Z4 Tablet

Sony Xperia Z3+ Android 7.0 Nougat

Sony Xperia Z5, Xperia Z3+, and Xperia Z4 Tablet started receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat this week, but it seems this hasn’t lasted for long, according to Xperia Blog.

While those on the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium started seeing the OTA update earlier in the week, it is only two days ago that the same OS started rolling out to Xperia Z3+ users. But before this even reaches some devices, the Japanese tech giant has already moved in to reportedly stop the update.

According to some Sony Xperia Z5, Z3+ and Z4 Tablet users, the Android 7.0 Nougat OTA is no longer available for them to download. Some had already been notified that the OTA is ready for downloading but had yet to do so, however, their later efforts to get the OS have been futile, leading to conclusions that the company may have halted the OS.

If this is true, Sony will not be the only company to have commenced the Nougat update and somehow stopped it somewhere along the way. Not so long ago, HTC also did the same with respect to the HTC 10, but the Taiwanese company assured customers that the OTA update will be back in three weeks’ time.

Now, for those using Sony Xperia Z5, Z3+ and Z4 Tablet and the update had not reached your devices, you may have no otherwise but to wait. It is possible that Sony may have discovered a bug in the whole OTA update and if this is the case, it should be worked on for some few days or weeks for that matter. Whether this is just a small glitch or something serious is still unknown at this point in time, nonetheless, we expect the tech giant to resume the process in a few weeks’ time, just like with the case of HTC.

We’ll let you know when this happens. Keep following us!
