Sony Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 Tablet are getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates, too
The Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact, and Z5 Premium aren't the only Sony devices that are being updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow starting today. Sony is also pushing the update to the Xperia Z3+, and the Xperia Z4 Tablet (both of which were released in the first half of 2015 with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board).

According to Xperia Blog, both the LTE (SGP771) and Wi-Fi-only (SGP712) versions of the Xperia Z4 Tablet are being updated to Marshmallow. As for the Xperia Z3+ smartphone, at the moment, the update is live only for the single SIM variant (E6553), though the dual SIM model (E6533) will likely get it soon, too.

Sony is officially selling the Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 Tablet in the US, though it's offering them only unlocked, via retailers like Amazon - so you can't get them from any carrier. The Xperia Z3+ can be purchased for as low as around $400, while an Xperia Z4 Tablet will cost you at least $600. Would you buy any of the two devices, now that you know they're being updated to Android Marshmallow?

Sony sure is on a roll. Meanwhile, my T-Mobile S6 Edge+ is dying for a taste of Marshmallow.

I love mine. I can't wait to get Marshmallow on it. I hate when do something on my Nexus 5 and expect my Z4 to do the same thing.

The Z5 with marshmallow is very fast and responsive! Sony likes to take their time with updates (and let users test it extensively via the beta program), but they deliver very good updates without bugs. Thanks Sony!

I bought a Z4 from Amazon the same month that they came out and its the best entertainment and (with the keyboard) productivity device made. Its a shame Sony didn't make buying them in the USA easier and that so few of few of the electronics media reviewed it
