That includes the Xperia Z5 Compact and Xperia Z5 Premium along with the standard Xperia Z5 handset.
Android 6.0 is no longer a stranger to several different Android phones all over the globe, and now even Sony has begun the rollout to some of its devices.
This is probably not your first software update, but you should remember that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow file is quite large and it’s recommended that you find a good WiFi connection before downloading it. The process itself may take a while so you better make sure that your device has enough battery.
According to Sony GB, March 7 is when users should expect the official update seeding, but the announcement suggests that that date isn’t exactly “confirmed” confirmed – it’s tentatively confirmed. If you haven’t received the update yet you should not worry because it can take a few days and you will surely get it at some point. Therefore owners there might also want to check for updates.
The covered models include the single SIM E6653, as well as the Dual-SIM varieties, with model numbers E6683 and E6633.
The update is firmware version 32.1.A.1.163 and it’s available at the moment via the Sony PC Companion app. It’s also expected to be available very soon as an OTA (over-the-air) update. The screenshots revealed by Sony Mobile Japan show some of the new features and improvements in the update. These include refreshed app permissions, Doze, and Google Now on Tap. If you have the Sony Xperia Z5 or any other Xperia device in line for the Android Marshmallow upgrade, do let us know when it receives the update.
