Sony Xperia Z5's worldwide Android Marshmallow roll-out begins

Earlier on this month, Sony Xperia Z5 owners in the firm's native Japan began to receive the big Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Now, it is being reported that Google's updated mobile firmware is rolling out to Xperia Z5 owners across other nations as well, and along with the standard Z5, those in ownership of the Xperia Z5 Premium and Z5 Compact can also expect an imminent update. 

The broader release of Android Marshmallow has been typically steady thus far. But a number of OEMs have begun to get their houses in order these past few weeks, and in-keeping with its schedule, Sony is offering the Z5 line some much-needed attention. It should probably be noted, however, that while Android 6.0.1 is the most recent public release, Sony is only pushing version 6.0 to the Z5 trio. 

The Marshmallow update has hit a couple of markets outside of Japan before now, including Thailand and Russia. But as per a number Redditors in ownership of Xperia Z5 handsets, the global roll-out appears to be in full swing. 

From what can be gathered, both carrier and unlocked editions from the Z5 range are now seeing updates across Austria, Australia, Ireland and Malaysia. It's very probable that others nations are on Sony's hit-list, though, so no matter where you reside, you might want to check for updates on your Xperia Z5 device. 

A run-down of the new features, including the battery-saving Doze feature implemented by Google, can be seen here. Be sure to let us know if your Xperia Z5 (or Z5 Premium / Compact) has gotten Android Marshmallow by dropping a comment below.
