Sony UK says Xperia Marshmallow will roll from 7 March

by XB on 16th February 2016

in Android, Firmware, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series, Xperia Z5 series


Android Marshmallow DroidWe don’t normally like to quote what Sony reps are saying about software timings on social media, but right now we have very little to go on with regards to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Sony Xperia devices. In the past, Sony Mobile has given some ballpark of when we can expect to see big new firmware roll, but the company has been very quiet this time around.

Anyway, according to the Sony Mobile UK Twitter feed, the update will be released from 7 March 2016 for the Xperia Z5, Z4 Tablet and Z3+. The date seems too specific to be made up, but Sony’s social media teams have been wrong in the past – so tread carefully. We’ll bring you any official news as soon as we have it.


Thanks Aman, Glimmer, KubsiJack and RobertoDS!

    lol wow March 7th…which means April for sure.

    I guess I will believe it when I see it…

  • Michael Rock

    They didn’t answer the question though :(

  • xAntifreeZe

    Been waiting for so long… hope it’s worth the wait

  • smartuser8

    Xperia SP ???

    Thanks Jack?

    When Sony mentions a release date, add another 3 months on top! And then another 3 for the phones not even mentioned. Like the Z3.
    Z3 and Z3+ should actually get it at the same time because.. Well what’s the big difference between them? Only the processor which is really badly dealt with in the Z3+ anyway

  • It’s getting annoying.

    Thank the gods there’s a lot of competition on android. If you want faster updates nobody’s stopping you from getting a Samsung or HTC or whatever if you think they’re better in this regard. I’m sure having the updates a whole two weeks earlier is a great reason to switch.

  • MoYeung

    Talk to the Swedish branch which is responsible for Android software.

  • Alvin

    No.. It’s more like this.

    When Sony mentions a release date, add another 3 months on top, at the same time when they finally released the update to z5,z4t,&z3+, they mention release date of the rest of their products will be on september 7th, and then you add another 3 months.

    So,
    Z5, Z4 Tablet, and Z3+ : June 7th
    Z3 and the rest : december 7th

    :”)

    Cannot be said better.

  • Matt

    What x10 is not going to get marshmallow? this is bullshit, Sony is the worse, I’m sure if they tweaked it enough my xperia x10 still capable to run marshmallow. Lol

  • MarkG54321

    It’s not that different to the others in release windows. Sony problem is contributing so much code to AOSP that is derived from their feature set, when it goes mainstream, more work to merge

    Stamina modes in marshmallow for one.

  • Ambitious Man

    a snail or turtle or whatever

  • deekbee

    Samsung are no better or different.

    Would you prefer rushed updates (as per what Apple seems to do these days) or Sony taking their time to get the releases right?

    I’d also love to know what updates Marshmallow brings that will improve the experience – as there is little in the way of real world improvements in moving from 4.x->5.x->6.x in my experience.

    Also worth noting that most people really don’t give a damn about these firmware updates.

  • What about Xperia T2 ultra?????

  • smartuser8

    Xperia :S

  • Matt

    i am not sure doze is sonys doing. yes they are contributing on AOSP code.

    but doze is more of google looking up sonys way.

    stop pointing finger, the fact is Update is coming and soon.

  • Sadman Khan

    Kitkat battery life is the real deal

    That would be fine if it was actually a matter of weeks.

    Samsung isn’t coming out without updates faster than Sony. Samsung didn’t come out with 5.1.1 for the S6 Active until November and then they withdrew the update in December for a month or so.

    Man, stop with the bullshit marketing of “Sony is slow because it releases a perfect firmware”.

    Z5, the current flagship, lacks of stable android auto brightness!!!! Event the most cheap android phone that has a light sensor, has a working/stable auto brightness.

    Samsung: Worst updates ever.

  • sebastianer

    So now we can expect MM in a Lolibuggy Z5/Z5C phone from 7th March to infinity and beyond!

    lol, I tough I was getting MM in November 2015! What a naive!

    What about Xperia m4 android 5.1 ???

  • deekbee

    I’m not saying that Sony releases perfect firmware (I’ve had a few bizarre reboots on my Z5C, along with the device completely locking up once), but rushing releases is *never* a good idea.

    At least on this release they appear to have run through a formal testing programme (albeit publicly only on the Z3….)

    The one improvement I would love to see on the Z5C would be camera startup time – it is definitely not reliable fast as starting up, and shot processing time is hilariously slow.

  • He mentioned Z3+ then what about Z3?

  • RealityCheck2016

    COOL ;) My Z4 Tablet is HAPPY :P But my Z1 Phone is SAD :( Oh well.

  • Alvin

    YEAH! If X10 didn’t get Marshmallow, I’ll never buy a sony product anymore and I’ll sue them. So sue on me!

  • Alvin

    No, just joking

  • Alvin

    When the day comes, “Happy March fools day!!!”

  • MoYeung

    Yes, they also do themes and certain Sony apps.

  • Alvin

    The annoyance you’re experiencing right now will be taken to a whole new level when you heard in the news that it will be delayed until june 7th

    /jk/

  • Alvin

    Did you mean around O? Because it will be March 7th, 2017:)

  • Alvin

    Xperia :E

  • Alvin

    Yeah, Xperia Z is currently on 5.1.1, but look at the S4, which announced at the same period of time which is around Q1, is still on 5.0 without any official plans for going to 5.1.

    Even Sony has more flagships than Samsung phones but they updated them frequently.

  • Alvin

    Go get a z5 and give your z1 to me as a secondary phone!!

  • Alvin

    Yeah, sadly

  • Uzair Syed

    Z3v here. Stuck on KitKat. Whatever though its my first phone and I’m fine with it.

  • I still have SP running 4.3 which im using for more than 2.5 years now. Still going strong, heats up while i heavily use LTE, gives 6-8 hours on heavy usage and a day on light usage. Only pathetic thing is its camera but i dont mind as i am not a guy who takes selfies at every corner of the street.

  • iia3ezu

    Get a new phone already? ;)

  • iia3ezu

    You don’t have to double-post.

  • iia3ezu

    What about buying a new phone?

    Or wait till Sony releases its 2016 flagship phones.

  • iia3ezu

    How about you buy a new Xperia phone and maybe that’ll help improve Sony’s financials?

  • iia3ezu

    Indeed. Sony is slow because its software devs are lazy and incompetent.

    I bet when Marshmallow is finally released for Sony phones, major bugs will still exist. So much for ‘taking their time to do it right’.

  • iia3ezu

    Making Xperia themes is their way of skiving on doing proper work.

    The camera software still sucks after so many years. There is no excuse.

  • iia3ezu

    Sony needs a Nexus device. Sony hardware and design, pure stock Android, minus the Xperia crapware such as Sketch, Lifelog, Socialife etc.

    And you’ll get fast and timely Android updates instead of wishing and hoping that it lands in your country, or it is implemented properly. No need to beg.

    I mean, even HUAWEI is getting into the business of making Nexus phones. Sony is perfectly capable of doing the same. But of course, the twits in the company making the major decisions (e.g. Xperia phone product placement in a Bond movie) may have other ideas.

    I wanted it because SONY, waterproofing, and Remote Play (which I do on my Vita more anyway but some games its nice to have a DualShock 4 for )

  • Weehaaw

    Same shit every year. People bitch and moan over slow updates. If fast updates is top priority, get a Nexus phone and get on with your life.

  • Matt

    thank god you’re 21 , i thought (at first) youre like 13 =,=

    well i bought the thing for its battery

  • Phazonclash

  • Hmmm., my phone is still new T2 manufactured in 2014 like Xperia Z2… And Z2 is getting Marshmallow update.
    Why!??
    Because Z2 is a flagship phone
    -_-

  • azzido

    Who cares? It is already FAIL.
    Considering it is almost stock it is just a big FAIL to be last to the party. No longer waiting for M, no longer waiting for Z5+, sorry Z6…

    1 THING ABOUT SONY IS THAT THEY DONT CARE WHAT the consumers thinks,the fans or whosoever..i had this problem with them for a long tym,but i stopped upgrading since my z2,because there are realy
    no big changes..
    the design is just da same since the start,they just give minor changes to everything.
    we dont want a 50 megapixel camera if it dnt work with low light conditions,megapixels aint everything and they know it,yet they just keep increasing it.the flashlight is realy weak compared to other brands.
    design has to change big tym,decrease the count of da megapixels,give us something great,cos when me n my freinds go head to head,i wanna smile.WHEN WILL SONY LEARN FROM THEIR MISTAKES?SEE WHAT CAN BE CHANGED,LEVEL THE SCORE WITH SAMSUNG.CAUSE ITS THE BIGGEST OF GIANTS THERE IS.COME ON SONY!!!
