Over a week ago, Sony Xperia X Performance and Xperia XZ started receiving the new update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat over the air.
But as usual with software updates, this version was first rolled out to the unlocked models. Now, according to reports surfacing from Canada, it appears that Rogers has just started rolling out the new Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to the Xperia X Performance.
As you may know, the Xperia X Performance was already running on the updated Android 7.0 Nougat following an update that begun last year. This is the update that actually carried all the Nougat goodies, but with the updated version 7.1.1, you only get refinements alongside stability improvements. In addition, the device will also be updated to the latest Android security patch for the month of April (although Google has already released this month’s version to the Pixel and Nexus devices).
You’ll need more than 550MB of free storage space in order to download and install the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat onto your Sony Xperia X Performance. This newer version comes at a time when the Japanese tech giant has already rolled out the newest Android 7.1.2 Nougat beta to the X Concept program. It also comes just two months following the release of v7.0 by Rogers, which happened back in February.
Rogers is rolling out this Nougat treat over the air, which means not all Sony Xperia X Performance devices will receive the update at once. It’ll take time, probably a week or so before all units are able to update to the newer v7.1.1. If waiting is not an option for you, try forcing the update by going to Settings>About phone>System updates>Check for updates, however, make sure you are connected to the internet via Wi-Fi and the phone’s battery is at least 50% charged.
