Sony promises Android 7.0 Nougat update for some of its high-end smartphones


Google officially released Android 7.0 Nougat update earlier this week for Nexus smartphones and tablets. Now, Sony has announced that it will release Android Nougat to some of its high-end smartphones. The update will be available for its Xperia Z and Xperia X series of smartphones. Unfortunately, the Sony Xperia Z3, which was released in September 2014, won’t see the Nougat update.
