These Sony Xperia devices will be updated directly to Android 6.0 Marshmallow (skipping Android 5.1)

Earlier this month, when Sony revealed a list of Xperia devices that would be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, it didn't provide details on exactly when this should happen. However, we now know that those devices on the list that are still running Android 5.0 Lollipop will make the jump to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, skipping the 5.1 Lollipop update (which has been made available for models like the Xperia Z2, Z3, and Z3 Compact).

According to Sony Mobile's official support pages, these are the Xperias that will be updated from Android 5.0 to 6.0 Marshmallow: Xperia M4 Aqua, Xperia C4, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M5, Xperia Z3+, and Xperia Z4 Tablet. The dual SIM versions (where applicable) will also be updated.

As already stated, there's no word on exactly when owners of these devices should expect to get their updates. Hopefully, it will happen starting the next few months. We'll obviously keep an eye on how Sony is managing Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates, and let you know when new details are available.

Ask someone why they want the new update and they'll never give you any solid reasons. I choose to stay on KK because it's stable and offers me the best balance of features.

If only these rabid users could own up too.

Yeah..they really should be getting a bit more share over the market and give us real competing(Also in pricing) products.

Somebody please tell T-Mobile. Maybe they'll realize they don't need to test the software for four months after the rest of the world has received it. Geez.

I work at t mobile the z3 differs from the factory unlocked z3 so it goes through tests to insure the less issues and bugs, not like Apple iPhone Apple just pushes out bugs we don't and try are best but don't count on it till late December or early January if discontinued z3 will never happen unless we get a new Sony device but don't look that way Sony has very low sales!! Apple and Samsung are top sellers

It's such a shame cause I really love my Z3 but the update schedule has been ridiculous. The one thing I can say is that they are bug free and very reliable. But at a certain point consumers want timely and bug free updates. Two months at the most seems reasonable especially when they know updates are available. And the worse part is lack of communication about delays and status. At least let us know. But no worries, as soon as I finish Final Fantasy VIII with my PS3 controller, I'll be upgrading to something else.

I'm pretty much rooting for Sony these days, and Xiaomi, and MVNO Voip apps.

Sony is currently the best Android OEM, in terms of product support.

Actually no. LG and Motorola are doing equally or in some cases better job.

I guess my Xperia Z Ultra will become a small tablet now.
