Sony starts updating the Xperia XA to Android 7.0 Nougat

Shortly after starting the Android 7.0 Nougat update rollout for the Xperia XA Ultra, Sony has started rolling out the Nougat update for the Xperia XA. Currently, the Android Nougat OTA update is available for five Xperia XA variants: F3111, F3113, F3115, F3112, and F3116. The first three are single-SIM variants while the last two are dual-SIM variants.

The Android 7.0 update for the Xperia XA arrives are build version 33.3.A.0.127. In addition to including all the usual Nougat goodness, the update includes the May security patch update from Google, dated May 5, 2017.

In case you have received an update notification on your Xperia XA, we recommend that you first connect the device to a Wi-Fi network before beginning the download. While we do not know the exact size of the OTA update yet, it should be well over 1GB. And being a major update, it will take quite some time for the OTA update installation to be completed. Which is why it is advised that you install the update only when your Xperia XA has over 70% battery charge remaining. If it is running low on battery, make sure you first charge the battery before you install the update.


Once you are done installing the update, you will notice several new features and other improvements. Some of the key highlights include new emojis, improved Doze mode for better battery life, bundled notifications, direct reply from notifications, customizable quick settings, multi-window mode for multitasking, and more.

If you haven’t received the update notification yet, you should head over to the Settings Menu and look for the update manually. Alternatively, you can also look for the update using the Xperia Companion software for PC and Mac platforms. Major updates are almost always rolled out in phases, so most of you will need to wait a few more days for the update to show up on your device.
