Sony halts Nougat update for Xperia Z5, Z3+ and Z4 Tablet

Even after several weeks into beta testing, manufacturers this year are failing to release a stable Nougat update to their Android devices. After HTC, it’s now Sony who has halted the Android 7.0 Nougat update for their flagship phone, Xperia Z5 and the Xperia Z3+ and Z4 Tablet.

As per recent reports, Sony seems to have pulled back the Android 7.0 Nougat update its Xperia devices starting today. Users who did not download the update previously, are also reporting that the update has now disappeared from their devices.

Sony rolled out the Nougat update to Xperia Z5 and Z4 Tablet earlier this week, while the Xperia Z3+ family of devices received the update yesterday only. Sony’s Nougat update was released with build number 32.3.A.0.372.

There’s no confirmation yet as to why did the updates were halted by Sony. It could be due to a serious bug/issue present on the Nougat firmware. We expect Sony to resume the update in the next few weeks.
