Sony Mobile released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for Xperia X devices last month. And now, going by it’s word to be the first manufacturer (other than Google smartphones) to release Android 7.1.1 update, the company has released Android 7.1.1 Nougat to Xperia X handsets as part of the latest Concept update. The company has started seeding Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the Xperia X Concept firmware with build number 38.3.A.0.41 and the Android build number is NMF26F8.
The latest 7.1.1 update to Xperia X Concept firmware brings some new features to the device. The update brings a new Restart option in the Power menu and a faster camera start-up time. The update comes with the December security patches. In addition to all this, Sony mobile has also added support for PS4 remote-play to the Xperia X Concept (but with no DualShock support for now).
The Android 7.1.1 OTA update is currently only available to those running the Experimental update track on Xperia X Concept. These Xperia Android Concept builds are experimental way to test new software that’s closer to stock Android than Sony’s stable releases. We hope that the final stable Android 7.1.1 Nougat update will head to all Xperia X owners in coming weeks, who aren’t part of the Concept testing. Earlier to this, Sony Mobile’s Concept team released another Xperia X Concept update that brings VoLTE support for the device.
