Sony previously promised to bring the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a number of its devices and it is now delivering on that promise. According to reports, the company is ready to roll out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to devices such as the Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact.
It can be noted that Sony released the Beta build for the update in the previous month. As with previous practices, the official rollout is now happening after the said beta test.
According to Xperia Blog, Sony Mobile announced the release of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on the Xperia Z2 and Z3 series. At the moment, the update is live for models such as Xperia Z2 (D6503 only), Xperia Z3 (D6603 ony) and Xperia Z3 Compact (D5803 only). Users will find that the build number for the said update is similar to the beta release: 23.5.A.0.570.
More importantly, Sony only approved the release of the Marshmallow update to the said units that are under the beta program. According to the report, this might be in an effort to ensure that users will have access to the firmware in a timely manner.
According to GSM Arena, people should expect the usual problems. For instance, the firmware is only available to three specific models. Likewise, the rollout is not happening for the rest of the world. As of the moment, reports say that the release is happening in countries like Ukraine, Russia, US, North Africa, Russia and possibly Latin America. Users will have to wait for the notification to appear on their devices. Nonetheless, for those who cannot wait, they can always check the device’s settings section and available updates. As with other Android updates, access could be delayed or not depending on the region and the network. People will have to check with their regional units and carriers for more details.
