This year, a lot of interesting things happened in the phone industry as regards the Android platform and one of the main things that set the trails blazing was the fact that someone else beat Google to the punch when it came to releasing a device that ran on the Android Nougat platform. Even before it has been announced that they would be ditching the Nexus name on devices and starting with Pixels instead, we have already found out that the first device to run on the Nougat 7.0 would be the V20 flagship from LG and now, Sony wants to steal the show in a way of their own too.
Although not as massive as what LG did, Sony is really making plans to be the first manufacturer to start rolling out the Android Nougat 7.1.1, behind Google, of course. They have backed up their claims with a cocksure attitude of “prepare your rotten tomatoes” in the case that someone else beats them to the punch and as of now, they are said to have the source code for this exact update, just waiting for some approval suites from Google.
For the new update, there is said to be some updates such as the option to restart the device in the power menu and of course, support for image keyboard.
