Sony has rolled out its first Android 7.0 Nougat update this week, and it’s headed straight to the flagship Xperia X Performance. The update is now available on unlocked handsets in “select regions,” bringing features like split-screen multitasking and new emoji characters.

The update, which is also available for the Xperia X Performance Dual, comes with version number 39.2.A.0.327, according to XperiaBlog. It’s unclear which markets are getting it first, but it should be available globally in the coming weeks if there are no hiccups.

Like any Nougat update, this one brings a whole bunch of new features and improvements, including the Vulkan API for enhanced gaming experiences and customizable Quick Settings. On the Xperia X Performance, it also brings an improved Stamina mode, new camera options, and more.

Once the release is available to you, you should receive a notification that prompts you to download it over-the-air. To search for the software manually, simply head into the Software Updates section inside the Settings app.
