Sony Xperia X Performance Gets Beta Android Nougat Update

Last month, Sony officially stated that Xperia XZ and Xperia X will get Android Nougat 7.0, but there was no word on the flagship X Performance. It was obvious that the flagship X Performance will get it, along with the complete Xperia X lineup.

Now, Android 7.0 Nougat beta with firmware build number 39.2.A.0.248 has started rolling out for select Sony Xperia X Performance owners. Only the single SIM variant (F8131) is getting the update, but expect to see stable, public version by the end of the year.

As for the beta firmware, it brings various new features such as split-screen, new notification panel, manual shutter speed and ISO controls at the full 23MP resolution, as well as the latest Stamina mode and October security patches from Google.
