At long last, the much-awaited Android Nougat 7.0 update will makes its way for the venerable yet relevant Sony Xperia Z5. Despite being released nearly two years ago, the Sony Xperia Z5 is still going strong since its specs are not really that dated. It may prove to be a long wait but Sony has been one of the first manufacturers that has came forward to affirm its commitment in updating its large range of smartphones during the sudden release of Android 7.0 Nougat by Google. Recently, it has just released the Android Nougat update for Sony Xperia X, XZ, X Performance and X Compact. Next, it will be Sony Xperia Z5's turn.
