Yours also same version PKG5.381 (Android 7)

I thought 4K models received it much earlier. Anyways they have added Asphalt Nitos Game, Graphics is awesome, no lags, but difficult to play on remote.

I feel PQ has been enhanced a bit which look better. UI changed a bit and i have to check my Sony HT also if the Audio lag issue has been solved or no.

Mine is also upgraded to Android 7, but unsure about build number. I can check once power resumes.

Firmware update to v6.2858 for Asia Pacific | Sony IN

Just searched over Sony India site, my TV received the update on 28-03-2018.

U had got Nougat long back, i guess last year itself. This is next update for ur TV. Mine is a FHD TV hence they get after 4K TVs, i will get this update v.6.285 may be after 3-4 months as they have to modify it as per the model.

Even ur latest update has this issue solved, which i got today.
  • Resolves an issue where short beeping sound can be heard after changing channel (PCM→Dolby digital (AC3) on STB)
  • Resolves an issue where Video freeze and lipsync off on "Amazon Prime" playback
