The list of devices mentioned at the press conference includes all devices that were listed by the company earlier. It should be noted that only these devices from Sony will be getting the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
Some of the phones that the company left out include; Xperia E5 which was launched early this year in May, Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z4v which were also released in May of 2015.
And that my friend is why I bought a z5. Cheap due to being 2015 but still upgradeworthy to nougat (at least).
I expect it to be abandoned in 2017 or not to make the one after nougat.
Then I will switch to Cyanogenmod.
