Sony Mobile has started 2017 with a bang by being the first manufacturer to release Android 7.1.1 on a non-Google smartphone. Sony Mobile’s Concept team has released Android 7.1.1 Nougat MR1 on the Xperia X in the form of build number 38.3.A.0.41.
New features include a restart option on the power button menu and a faster camera start-up time. Sony has also added PlayStation 4 PS4 Remote Play support to the Xperia X Concept (no DualShock support right now though), as well as updating to the latest 1 December Google Security patches.
The OTA release is only available for those running the Experimental track on Xperia X Concept. It is great to see Sony being committed to getting this out before others, let’s hope this same endeavour is seen on the stable firmware releases too.
Thanks Hein and najodleglejszy!
