SONY has started seeding the Android v.7.0, Nougat update for the Xperia XA. The company had already started seeding the update across the world and we can confirm that it has hit the US market (model F3113).
The update carries a firmware build number of 33.3.A.0.127. It is also expected that the update comes with a monthly security patch released by Google. Hopefully, it might be one of the recent patches.
The Xperia XA is a mid-range smartphone released by SONY early last year with Android’s Marshmallow flavour onboard. Carrying a MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 chipset coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage which was expandable via microSD card (up to 256 GB). It has a 5.0-inch HD (720 x1280) IPS panel based display clad under scratch resistant glass. SONY had provisioned it with a 13-megapixel rear shooter with a f/2.0 aperture, alongside PDAF support and LED flash. The selfie camera is an 8-megapixel sensor with a f/2.0 aperture. Both cameras support full-HD (1920 x1080) video content recording and HDR.
Although we are not sure if SONY will support the device with any future updates, it would be a good gesture to at least release regular security patch updates considering we came to know about another malware proliferating itself via the Play Store recently.
