Sony Xperia Z series
Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium receiving Marshmallow update Xperia Blog

Sony has started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow version in Japan after the latest Android OS version was seeded to users in Turkey in February. The company's UK division had earlier announced that the Marshmallow rollout for the Xperia Z5 series, the Xperia Z4 Tablet and Xperia Z3+ will commence from 7 March.

The company's Japanese division posted the change logs that have been brought about with this update in detail providing some precautions and requisites before one downloads the update.

Some of the major highlights from the update are as follows:

From the Marshmallow updates that Sony devices have received so far it seems the company is cutting down on customisations to allow the stock Android UI to take over. This makes it imperative for the company to make the Marshmallow available for as many models as possible.

While Japan and Turkey have received the update and UK is on the way, others may have to wait for a while specially the US as the Z series was only recently released there. Meanwhile, Sony Xperia C4 and the Xperia C5 Ultra received the Android 5.1 Lollipop update in February with no indications when Marshmallow will hit the C series or whether it will at all.
