Sony releases Android 7.1.1 Nougat Concept build for Xperia X

According to Xperia Blog, the released update is Android 7.1.1 Nougat MR1 and is said to have build number 38.3.A.0.41.

The Xperia X Concept firmware has since received a couple of updates, but the latest one that was rolled out under the program is found to be based not on Android 7.0 Nougat, but rather on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. However, the OS is only available for those who have registered and installed Concept for Android awhile ago.

Sony Corp. (NYSE:SNE) has started rolling out the latest Android Nougat 7.1.1 for its flagship Xperia X smartphone, becoming the first company to release the mobile operating system apart from Google.

Again, you have to be part of Sony's Xperia Concept Program to be eligible for this OTA update. The new features in this Android version include the restart button when holding down the power button, just like on the Google Pixel.

The Android 7.1.1 update is now only available to those that have chosen the Experimental update track when they installed the Concept for Android release.

A later update to the official software will make it available to all Sony Xperia X owners. It has a black color body with nearly non-existent bezels around the display.

A recent image believed to be a press image, has shown up online.

There will be two big occasions in which Sony might launch the new Xperia X 2017, the CES 2017 and MWC 2017. The bottom of the right edge of the phone shows a dedicated camera button, reports India Today.
