More Sony devices are up for some Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade. According to new reports, the company is now releasing the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact users.
Good news for more Sony users, the company is now releasing the official Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to the Android line. Specifically, the software update is available via the build number 23.5.A.0.570. Previously, Sony already released the said firmware on its Sony Xperia Z2/Z3 units. However, it was only until now that the company decided to bring Marshmallow to the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact line.
According to Xperia Blog, the update is available to models such as LTE (SGP621, SGP641) and Wi-Fi (SGP611, SGP612) variants. People should see the prompt once available. It is also best to connect to a reliable WiFi or cellular connection when updating. Similar to mobiles, tablets should also be ideally fully charged when updated to avoid problems.
This is not the only thing keeping Sony busy. According to Pocket-Lint, the company’s Xperia X and Xperia XA units will be hitting UK stores soon. The pricing is also now available. While Sony has decided to kill the Xperia Z range, the company will be introducing the new Xperia X range. Both devices are mid-range and upper-mid-range entries. There were reports previously saying that Sony decided to focus on the mid-range line because the premium market is an overly saturated and highly competitive sector, which the company hasn’t been successful in cracking.
Sony Xperia XA comes with a 5-inch 720p display, MediaTek Helio P10 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage plus microSD expansion. It also runs on Android 6.0.1 with 13MP primary shooter and 8MP front shooter. The Xperia X comes with 5-inch display with 1080p resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor backed by 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. It has a 23MP primary shooter and a 13MP front shooter.
