Sony pulls Android 7.0 Nougat update for Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra


We reported to you less than two weeks ago about a new Android 7.0 Nougat update rolling out to the Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra. Well, it looks like the update is now on hold as Sony is trying to patch up a few things that caused some performance inconsistencies related to the OTA delivery system.

There's nothing wrong with pulling a major update if there are issues that must be addressed, but we can't help but wonder why it took Sony two weeks to reach the conclusion that the rollout must be put on hold temporarily. You can read Sony's full statement below:

The good news is if you've already installed Android Nougat on your Xperia XA or XA Ultra, there will no impact on your phone's performance. Since Sony did not offer any ETAs regarding the resuming of the rollout, we'll just have to wait for another statement in the coming days.
