Android Nougat certified for Xperia Z5 and Z3 Plus series (32.3.A.0.372)

by XB on 13th January 2017

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series, Xperia Z5 series


Android 7.0 Nougat may shortly be released for the Xperia Z5, Z4 Tablet and Z3+ series, as Nougat firmware build 32.3.A.0.372 has just been certified by the PTCRB. Whilst the PTCRB, a cellular certification company, stopped publishing public links of new Xperia devices – links for the older devices still remain accessible. It shows that Sony will look to move the build number from 32.2.A.5.11 to version 32.3.A.0.372. Hopefully, this means the actual consumer release is, at most, a matter of weeks away. We’ll let you know once it starts rolling.

Thanks Furkan and Vincent!

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Great news I hope that it’ll released shortly and we finally get all the X series goodies like themes and new HOME launcher…. Etc

  • Nebojša

    Almost 2 years old Xperia Z3+ will get Nougat before S7.
    Sony rules!!

  • Sam Leung

    And they still haven’t release the Nov security update in my region

  • As much I’d love to get X features, I don’t believe we will get it :/

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Why not? Sony usually gives the new UI to all of their devices they update nowadays :)

  • theskig

    I hope they will fix the audio pairing bug with android wear…

  • Because it’s a new line and s company new to maintain some exclusively

  • yopo

    Company new???????????? LOL

  • Need. Sorry! Auto correct

  • Ralphch97

    FINALLY!! MY Z5P HAS BEEN WAITING FOR TOO LONG
    CHEERS!

  • Benjamin Estimada

    Did they just… skipped the XA? :(

  • Dilipkumar

    Atlast we going to recieve it soon.
    thank you Sony

  • SONY only

    Finally !!!

  • SONY only

    I don’t like X Series themes

  • xAntifreeZe

    one month later than scheduled but hopefully it will fix the wifi drop issue on my Z5P :/

  • Eric Ho

    No,the xa get nougat after z5 and z4 series

  • Eric Ho

    Finally ,have been wait for a long time

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Hopefully it will solve heating problem with my z3+ after last update. Also antutu scores have never been above 52000. Maybe after nougat update scores will improve to 96000 as reported by some users.

  • Am I the only one Who don’t like the new battery icon

  • KIMI
  • Shehab Skull

    I think they will not remove the original z5 themes .. they will keep the original themes but they will also add new ones !

    and if they didn’d do that .. no problem ! some of thier original themes are already avalible in googleplay :

  • Objectif

    Yes ! Finally

  • Mustafa Sezer

    Who reported that point?

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    I thought it has been released already but a matter of weeks?can be 4 weeks or 6weeks or even 36 weeks

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    What are the X features

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I like the new battery icon, I hated the old one xD it’s like it was on jelly bean 4.3 now but without the green in it ^^

  • Shehab Skull

    not before .. they started rolling it 3 days ago .. but u re right Sony is fast !

  • MoYeung

    Rumor and speculation? Disappointed…

  • The new UI, smart clean, new charger technology (QNovo), and new camera (but since this is mention on the official video, we at least will get the new selfie mode. I really want the manual controls)

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    read it on some blog ot youtube, dont remember….

  • Mustafa Sezer

    So, who can update the z3+ to 7?

  • razorg

    I wonder if it’s going to be 7.0 or 7.1.1 (they’ve already released 7.1.1 on X Concept so I guess they’ve got plenty of experience on 7.1.1 already, we just need that to reflect on our Z5 series…)

  • He’s right. Sony altrady updated XZ, X Performance and X. Sony is really fast. And probably we will get the 7.1 by spring/summer

  • TimmY

    Ay caramba! It’s happening!

  • Moisés

    I have z3+ too… Still on 5.0.2 ( my own choice).
    Last time I ran antutu here the score was 81645.
    I have all updates against overheating here.
    Only 5 cores working, 4 of 1,5GHz and 1 of 2.0 GHz..

  • Moisés

    No… The schedule would start with devices with snapdragon 820, 650, 810 and then Mediatek Helio P10.

  • Moisés

    Camera app is different since 5.1.1

    Z5 since lollipop has cam app like the one on X.
    On z3+ it was the old app.

  • Moisés

    Is Sony really leaving M, C and E behind?
    No Nougat for them?

    E5 was released in may or june.

    Lenovo Moto X Play has sd615, just like M4. X Play is going to be updated.
    C4 and C5 are good phones…
    M5 is even better. It is a premium intermidiate

  • But with marshmallow we didn’t get that “small/big preview” before the image disappear on album app.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    dude my phone too got all the updates till date, 5 cores working. But since last x.x.x.x.11 update its overheating again, though only 5 cores work most of times. Antutu scores never above 52000.

  • razorg

    How do you guys see which cores are working?

  • Moisés

    Do you reset your phone after every update?
    It is important to remove leftovers of last firmware.

  • Moisés

    I do not think z5 would get 7.1 while Xz has 7.0

    Unfortunately although the Z5 Premium is more of a premium phone than the XZ but it is what it is, the new toys always get the latest and greatest features and firmwares

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Me too but after seeing it for the last three years I’m done I want a new one !!

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Use app cputemp

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    I do wipe cache partition( vol up+ power button) once in while.

  • razorg

    I know CPU-Z, I thought you guys were using something different. Those A57 cores (CPU4-7) ARE supposed to be stopped because you’re not doing anything, you’re just seeing CPU-Z’s UI and that’s being carried out by the weaker A53 cores (CPU0-3). The real question is, whether those A57 STAY stopped when they are supposed to work during, let’s say, gaming or benchmarking…

  • Moisés

    The overheating updates for z3 plus does not allow those 3 cores to work. No matter what I do here. 5, 6 and 7 never work.

    Cores 0, 1, 2 and 3 reach 1,5GHz.
    Core 5 can reach 1,96 GHz

  • Moisés

    Maybe z5 family gets 7.0 and next year jumps to 8.0 and skips 7.1.

    Z3+, m4, c4, c5 and m5 all came wirh 5.0.2 . They were updated to 6. No 5.1 for them.

  • musa

    Fake Fake Fake. This is completely photoshopped, if you actually go to their main website, https://www.ptcrb.com/vendor/complete/complete_request.cfm?tab=Certified, there is no option for you to expand information on E6653!!! This is just a lie!!!!!!!!!!

  • razorg

    I remind you, first Sony phones to get Marshmallow were Z3+/Z5 but the version was 6.0. Then, Z2/Z3 got updated directly to 6.0.1. Z3+/Z5 got 6.0.1 months after Z2/Z3. A similar thing can happen, and Z3+/Z5 can get 7.1.1 before XZ….

  • Moisés

    I see… I thought only M and C got 6.0 and Z 6.0.1 ..

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Yeah I hope so but the time is ticking for the Z5 series on september they will reach their EOL and I don’t think SONY will support them furthermore although all of the Z family got at least 4 major updates during their life the Z5 series only got 2 so far …

  • fried_egg

    Can’t wait… the audio was starting to glitch and a reload will be just in time.

  • Moisés

    Z3 was going to have Nougat. Z2 was not in my opinion.
    I think 7.1.1 is last update for z4, I believe z5 reaches Android O.

  • Actman

    Let’s see if the wait is worthy. I would like to see the new X UI for my Z5.

  • Sigma

    All 8 cores are working. My Xperia Z3+, stock unbranded 6.0.1, under load:
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7c8ef84cf56af4e6e52723fe0ed16f1095889c3afec2b03517ff28d136f127eb.png

    With no load it turns off 3 cores leaving only 5 working.

  • Sigma

    Of course you do realise, that you have to register and apply for access to full database?

  • musa

    you can only see some of the devices, but no one is double checking and people can just claim anything. I only want to see it for myself. everyone is just accepting but not checking.

  • Alvin

    S7 and S7 Edge just got Nougat recently, but yes, they’re very fast on updates nowadays.

    I have a feeling that Z3+ and Z5 will be updated to Nougat before S6 and Note 5 though

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Yes, both should get Android O the Z3+ got 5.0,6.0 and Z5 got 5.1,6.0 so according to SONY tradition with Z family they both should get 7.0,7.1,8.0
    But all of this is speculation and might not happen!!

  • Moisés

    But till then z3+ will be 30 months old. Same of z2 this year.

    In my opinion, Sony was planning this:

    Z1 : 5.1.1
    Z2: 6.0.1
    Z3: 7.0
    Z4: 7.1.1
    Z5: 8.0

  • Moisés

    Android 6 has different management for z3 plus compared to Android 5.

    Anyway mine reaches 44 celsius degrees when I browse on internet, no games nor cam being used.

    People who got z3 plus in April/2015 said it could easily reach 70 celsius degrees..

    Snap 810 is stronger than they all were thinking.

  • NonSugar♡

    Wow…didn’t know people are still going on about this…you could always try running benchmark and immediately switch to CPU-Z and you will see all cores running and immediately stopped…the A57 core will be activated when needed and deactivates when not needed, this is why they came out with the idea of having 2 different set of cores, the power efficient low cores which are meant to handle everything and is exactly how big little works. Both qualcomm and ARM even explained it before but people freaks out…See: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Big.Little_Cluster_Switching.png

  • NonSugar♡

    Having said that, the above two screenshot actually proved it.
    Moises: CPU load at 35% with 4+1 cores running
    Sigma: CPU load at 71% with 4+4 cores running

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Possible

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    I purchased z3+ in may 2016. It used to reach 65-67C temperature.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    They will I’m sure about that xD

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Yes it’s very possible because
    Z:- 4.1.2, 4.2.2, 4.4.4, 5.0.2, 5.1.1
    Z1:- 4.2.2, 4.3, 4.4.4, 5.0, 5.1.1
    Z2:- 4.4.2, 5.0.2, 5.1.1, 6.0.1, 7.0 (Because of Qualcomm Z2 didn’t get it)
    Z3:- 4.4.4, 5.0.2, 5.1.1, 6.0.1, 7.0 (Same reason)
    Z3+:- 5.0.2, 6.0.1, 7.0, 7.1.1, 8.0
    Z5:- 5.1.1, 6.0.2, 7.0, 7.1.1, 8.0
    But I hope that’s driver thing didn’t happen again with the Z3+/Z5

  • Moisés

    When I look all a53 are working. But one a57 is too.
    How would they manage the heat without providing less power?
    Z5 has heat pipes, z4 does not.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Update might be released tommorrow afternoon or tuesday.

  • musa

    The Xperia z5 only has 3 gb of ram and as of today that is not sufficient. Phones like the Samsung s7 will get os higher than 7.0. It just depends on Google really!

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    I dont think xperia x ui will he given to z5 and z3+ as nougat version is just bumped from 32.2.A.5.11 to 32.3.A.0. 372. Relatively small bump in version no. No bump to 39.X.X.X.X like in x series phone.

  • Bryan Grobmann

    Oh gloryy!

  • Dilipkumar

    No not lik that.
    Check xperia X build number from marshmallow to nougat.
    Same difference in build number to z5

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    How can u say tht..??

  • Joonwoo Park

    Does anyone know how long it took for Sony firmware to be released after being certified? Maybe we can guess from the past cases….

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    In june sony released the update as soon as ptcrb certification was done.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Oh ok, i got your point.

  • NonSugar♡

    I will just copy and paste…
    A single chip could have one or two ‘Big’ cores and many more ‘Little’ cores, or vice versa. Nvidia created something similar to this with the low-power ‘companion core’ in their Tegra 3 SoC.
    From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARM_big.LITTLE

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Sorry I have to disagree with you the 3GB is more than enough to run android smoothly for now of course also all the high end phones from 2015 has 3GB of RAM and the Z3/Z2 didn’t get the Nougat update becuase of the vulkan compatibilty not becuase of the amount of RAM and it’s always been like this for instance when 4.3 was out google introduced OpenGL ES 3.0 support for the first time and it was the deciding factor for whither you will get the update or not also in every single update from 4.4 onward the RAM usage getting lower not higher.
    This is not to mention that SONY to this moment didn’t release any phone with a memory higher than 3GB which from your perspective make it in the same position as the Z5 !?

  • Shehab Skull
  • Jamie stewart

    Do you think the Xperia m5 will get Nougat? The m5 is not really old

  • Don_Alduck

    Approximately 1-3 weeks if they do not find any major bugs that could hold it back for even longer. It’ll be a phased roll-out meaning that different regions will get it at different times, so the update itself could take up to a month (usually 1-2 weeks) to reach the west EU.

  • Nooneisperfect

    They are not at all fast haha. Sony is fast. And yes they are gonna roll out nougat before samsung note5 and s6 i guess:-)

  • Nooneisperfect

    Only beta tester first, so yes Maybe before z3+ and z5 serie. But wrong the nougat for samsung has not been rolled out to public yet :-)

  • Moisés

    Would be great..
    I think anyone who has C4, C5, M4 and M5 should send them a tweet and ask for the update.

    M5 is much better than Galaxy A5 and Moto X Play.

  • razorg

    M5 meets every single requirement Google has put forward for Nougat. At this point, it’s up to Sony to decide. And Sony too (like all the other companies) likes to drop their “mid-tier” phones so quickly. I think it SHOULD get it, but what Sony is thinking about right now; that’s unknown :(

  • Shehab Skull
  • Nooneisperfect

    I know, but still the fact only official registered beta users, get it first, we other must wait!.. read the screenshot from this site;-) so no not rolled out to unregistered beta and 6.0 users ;-) hope soon.

    3GB is more than sufficient. Hell, I ran Cyanogen on my HTC One X (1GB)

  • Paul M

    Have you discussed your trust issues with a qualified therapist?

  • a n t o n i o T Z

    Does anyone know if it will come with the personalization layer of the Xperia X?

  • tech189

    Looking forward to getting Nougat on my Z4 at last! Split screen should be really useful!

  • Zayed Kotayba

    This is SONY tradition for naming new firmwares it’s always been like this since the Xperia arc era, the firmware of newer devices gets this leap in the first number in firmware like from 39.X.X.X.X to 40.X.X.X.X and older phones just have leap in the second number like from 32.1.X.X.X to 32.2.X.X.X

  • Z5 wont get 8.0, it will be after 2 years old then they will pushed update for it…

  • Burak

    is it a good idea to buy z5p nowadays, my friends?

  • Moisés

    Maybe… Z3 was going to get N. Z3 is from Q3 of 2014 just like z5 in 2015.

  • Alvin

    Yes, Sony is very fast on updates..

  • JC

    I bought mine 3 months ago, I knew it was already over a year old when I got it but I’m still pretty satisfied with it. It’s a solid piece of technology both inside and out.

  • JC

    Hopefully Tuesday then.

  • Objectif

    The Z5 is a good phone. I like technologie but no need new phone for long time. i’ven’t mine since 1 year ago.
