Were receiving reports that the Sony Xperia XZ is receiving its serving of Android 7.0 Nougat update. A reader from India tipped us off (thanks, Vedant!) but checking with XDA it seems that the first wave includes Australia, the Netherlands, Russia and Turkey.
The update is a hefty 1GB so connect to a nice Wi-Fi network and check for updates. Dont worry if you dont see anything yet, staggered roll-outs take a while to reach everyone.
