Alternative software for the range of smartphones Xperia X is about to receive a major update. Concept is the experimental firmware by Sony, and introduces many interesting features, though it does not guarantee the stability of the whole system (for now). In fact, the Xperia X range is undoubtedly the main engine of the concept within the Android program, which opened a few months ago and is based on new experiments and improvements to the overall operation of each device. A good idea for the time being enjoyed by all owners of 5-inch, Snapdragon 650 processor smartphones and have chosen to participate in these beta tests.

Therefore, owners of an Xperia X Concept who joined the program for Android will be the one who enjoy it. But what are the different improvements in the latest version (before the arrival of Android 8.0 O still in the Developer Preview) green robot? Google points in four directions within the distinctive features of the new Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
