Android 7.0 Nougat halted for Xperia XA and XA Ultra

Meanwhile, Sony has pulled Android Nougat for Xperia XA and XA Ultra about a week ago. In a statement to XperiaBlog, Sony said, "We've temporarily paused the Android 7.0 upgrade for Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra due to minor performance inconsistencies related to the over-the-air delivery system. Regardless of whether a user has been able to successfully run the upgrade or not, there is no detrimental impact on device performance or loss of existing user data. We're aiming to re-commence the rollout as soon as possible with a seamless upgrade experience for all users, and will provide a further update in due course."
