Sony has been working on delivering the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to many of its devices, including the Xperia lineup. According to reports, the said update should be available to several Xperia units this March while other devices should follow soon.
It has been several months since Google released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update but OEMs are still working on releasing the firmware to all intended devices. According to International Business Times, Sony will likely roll out the firmware to the following devices: Xperia Z3+, Sony Xperia Z5 line up and Xperia Z4 tablet. Previously, it was also reported that PTCRB already certified the update for Z3+. Build number is 32.1.A.0.434.
Sony already launched the beta program for Z3, Z3 Compact, Z2 in Italy, Spain and Netherlands last February 2016. So it should just be a matter of time before the company seeds it officially to the devices. The testing is also reportedly almost done. Users will just need to wait for the notification to proceed with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Users can expect Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia C4, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M4 Aqua, Sony Xperia Z3+ and Xperia M5 to skip the Android 5.1.1 and go directly to the 6.0 version. As with other Android updates, it is best to confirm with regional units and carriers on the exact schedule of release.
The update is not the only thing keeping Sony busy. According to a new report from 3g, the company will be releasing a new mid-ranger named as the Sony Xperia X. The phone should up on store shelves around summer. Features include a hexa-core Snapdragon 650 processor, two cores running at 1.8GHz and four clocked at 1.4GHz, 3GB RAM and 5.0-inch display with 1080pn resolution. There is no pricing yet on the device but people have a look at it through the video posted along with report.
