Earlier this year, Sony began offering an early Developer Preview version of Android Nougat to owners of older Xperia Z handsets. Now, the company (via XperiaBlog) is apparently offering an early beta of Android 7.0 Nougat to owners of the Xperia X Performance as well. Unfortunately, it’s only available to people in select countries…

As of the time of this writing, Sony is currently only taking sign ups from users in the following locales: Nordics, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Iceland, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Netherlands.

Access to the program is offered by way of the Xperia Beta Program app, which is only currently available in the countries listed above. If you do decide that you want to take Sony up on this offer and get access to an “open channel” with Sony Mobile’s developers, you need to act fast. The company says that space is limited.
