Sony Xperia Z5 series, Z3+, and Z4 Tablet are all being updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat

Sony this week is rolling out an Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for several of its slightly older devices: Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z4 Tablet, and Xperia Z3+

The update includes Google's June security patch (as you can see in the screenshot on the left), and comes almost five months after these smartphones (and the tablet) received Nougat 7.0 updates - previously, they ran Android 6 Marshmallow.

Sony has yet to formally announce this Android 7.1.1 Nougat update, but we're guessing that all owners of the Xperia models mentioned will get the new software version in the near future.

Right now, it's not clear if the Sony devices listed here will receive any other major software updates. However, we certainly hope that at least the Xperia Z5 series of smartphones will get Android O at some point. 

As for the Xperia Z4 Tablet and Xperia Z3+, these are already over 2 years old, so there's a high chance they'll remain on Android 7.1.1. Nougat... forever and ever.
