Members of the Sony Xperia X Concept can now join the Google Pixel, Nexus and Android One users in updating their devices to the latest Android security patch for the month of April.
The Xperia X Concept is currently testing the newer Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but the likes of Google Pixel and Nexus 6P devices are already updated with the stable version of Android 7.1.2 Nougat. So far, the stable Android 7.0 Nougat is powering the rest of the Sony Xperia X family, excluding the XA and XA Ultra, which are yet to see the Nougat treat.
Being a monthly security update, there’s nothing really major that it brings as far as new features are concerned. But as usual, you’ll need to install it since it contains an unknown number of bug fixes as well as stability and performance improvements. The update carries software version 38.3.1.A.0.96 and it will update your phone’s security patch to the month of April.
If you haven’t yet seen the update on your Sony Xperia X, try triggering a manual download of the files by going to Settings>About phone>System updates.
Similar to the Sony Xperia X Concept that is currently testing Android 7.1.1 Nougat, it appears that those using the Nextbit Robin smartphone can also expect to receive this same update in the coming days or weeks. At the moment, the phone has already been updated to Android 7.0 Nougat and if the latest GFXBench listing is to be believed, the company is already testing the newer v7.1.1 on the device.
From what we know, this appearance in benchmarks is an indicator that the OS will be rolled out to the Nextbit Robin probably before the end of this month or early next month. In fact, the company also promised to keep on updating the device until 2018 despite the fact that it was bought by Razer Inc. earlier this year. The Nextbit Robin is the company’s only phone and it was released in August 2015.
