Android Marshmallow firmware certified (32.1.A.0.434) for Xperia Z3 Plus

by XB on 17th February 2016

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series

Xperia Z3 PlusNew firmware has been certified by the PTCRB for the Xperia Z3+ with build number 32.1.A.0.434. Yes, this is the Android 6.0 Marshmallow release and compares to current firmware version 28.0.A.8.272 (Android 5.0.2 Lollipop).

Perhaps, yesterday’s reported release date of 7 March is true after all. If this firmware is the official final release, then expect the same build number to appear on the Xperia Z5 series as well as the Xperia Z4 Tablet. We’ll keep you posted once we hear more.

  • Samuel

    I don’t own a Z3+, but it will be cool to do a system dump and start modding right now…even if the Marshmallow Beta is about to land at any time.

  • Joe Black

    Hopefully not long now.
    LP on Z5 Compact is rubbish.

    It usually take around 1 week after certified on PTCRB before it start rolling out…hopefully they push it out faster. My Z2 on 5.1.1 is actually more responsive than my current Z3+ on 5.0.1…

  • Sadman Khan

    … does the Z5 series get ignored so much? :|

  • SONY only

    i love xperia z3 plus

  • Sadman Khan

    I can relate. But I had a Mi Pad. That was true horror

  • Sadman Khan

    My Z3c on 5.1.1 is muuuuuch faster than my z5c

  • Stefan

    dude, are you alright? shall i get you your medicine?

  • Ravi Shakya

    I checked on the site but Z3+ no. is PM 0900 BV and this is showing here as PM 0791 BV .
    Do i need any correction ?

  • akzidenz


  • Ravi Shakya

    when the update will come to Z2 by taking an assumption from this ??

  • Jim

    My Z3+ is still on 28.0.A.8.266 from December.
    What happened to the .272 update from last month? I notice there was no word of that going to the Z4 tablet. My Z4’s still on 28.0.A.8.260 from November.
    At least this update brings them both up to speed Android and Sony wise.

  • Ravi Shakya

    how do u know that it takes 1 week for OTA ?

  • Gerardo Ruiz

    My z3+ dual lost the superior earpiece with the .272
    I couldn’t hear anything and sound cracked, better if you didn’t receive it

  • Joe Black

    It’s derived from a movie quote.
    No thanks Dr. Feelgood.

  • mUSICA

    well well India has launchd the cheapest phone in the world only for indians for just 251 rs =4$
    goo replacenment for my x8 xD… 1.3ghz quadcore, 4inc display,8gb internal, 32gb sd support, 1gb ram, 1400 mh battrey an comes with 5.1 andriod

  • Joe Black

    Yep. Also, my old Z1 compact AND Z3c are faster than my current Z5c

  • Allan

    Can we expect this to update OTA? My PC Companion software keeps saying ‘Server not available’. I’d prefer not to use Xperifirm, Flashtool etc…My Z3+ is on 5.0.2; but my previous Z ran faster/smoother

  • sebastianer

    I’m fu**ing laughing. Sad but true.

  • Reen

    So we can expect a release during next month? I son´t really understand why there is a beta test for Z2 and Z3 then. Is the build for SD 801 so much different than the one for SD 810?

  • Sadman Khan

    Sad :(

  • Matt

    summary from the last thread:

    z5 devices are new, not many people have it yet , or wanted their shiny new phone as a beta testing platform.

    nor many people owns z3+ , the thing is hardly sell.

    z2 and z3 is by far the most popular sony devices, its only logical to test the software on it.

  • cicababa

    Lol :D An Xperia E4 update was certified in last October. Guess what, still didn’t roll.

  • Sadman Khan

    So you have been through the pain?

  • Samuel

    We are still waiting for the Beta, I guess April-May.

  • rtr titans dying to upgrade with worth..

  • Ali Aftab

    Any news regarding xperia z3v?.is there any chance for marshmellow???plz reply

  • charbel aoun


  • Ravi Shakya

    how can this be possible ? i mean concept program was released for Z3 and Z3C then how come these devices are getting the update first ? It should be Z3 series first to get it !!

  • Jacky

    It seems a little strange..i thought version #32 belongs to the z5 series?

  • Makiz

    The only offensive word in my opinion here is the word “galaxy” :p

  • Bashar Shehab

    Welcome to ” Nobody Cares ” land..

  • Haziq Hasnol Zam Zam

    Both devices will probably share the same firmware number going forward.. Just like the Z2 and Z3 does if I’m not mistaken..

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    non offense Matt, but I want to address one point the questioner asked. Yes, FW for SD801 and that for 810 is VERY different, so different to the point that Sony will need a complete redo, except abstract classes and interfaces (in java terms)

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    yes you can do it, but a bit more waittime

  • QBerto

    both z3+ and z5 are ignored, but I think Z5 is better ’cause at least have 5.1 and can’t (or souldn’t) overheat like z3+ making it unusable

  • Trevor

    I agree with every single one of those words.

  • Sadman Khan

    Yes they both are but…atleast the camera doesn’t take like 5 seconds to open on Z3+. Also, Z5 is the latest flagship and it hasn’t even received the certification for marshmallow

  • Ravi Shakya

    Is the beta program going to stop ? cause it doesnt make any logic if they release the official update before the Beta program !!

  • Shamoy Rahman

    But they will understand how to optimize them based on the 80. If they can make it perform excellently on the 801, they will know how to rework the code for the 810 to make it perform even better.

  • HypeZ

    my Z5c is muuch faster than my z5c and really slower than my z5C

  • karam abi karam

    No bro you dont need any correction


    Xperia™ Z3+ (E6553)





    Here is the link:

  • QBerto

    I prefer a camera with 5s delay that one enters overheat w/o using it xD, and ofc can’t take videos (not 4k) longer than 2min, I don’t know other flagships but latest 2 sucks so hard apparently

  • Sadman Khan

    Well Z5c can record atleast 20 mins of 4k at a stretch. I’m fine with that. I hope marshmallow makes it feel like a flagship though. Right now it’s hardly any better than a midranger

  • haxona

    Beta program is for Z3 series only

    Z3+ falls under Z4 and is of a different branch

  • Ye Olde Vadge

    I replaced my Z3 Compact with Z5 Compact. It’s slower (laglaglag), it has the automatic brightness bug, no dock charging which I loved, but on the plus side… um… fingerprint reader is cool.

    Seriously, Sony, give me that marshmallow I crave.

  • Andrius Mikalauskas

    When z3c will be updated, I hope Sony fixed headphones jack issue with marshmallow, bvecause some of the headphones is unrecognizable, but able to pus sound through soundabout app, that stinks, because I have nice set of sms sync headphones and cant use em, sony fix it asap please!!

  • Allan

    Jumped up from my chair an hour ago when I got an OTA-notification…. only to find Sony is pushing the update from December to me! It has solved the PC Companion ‘not connecting to server’-issue, I’ve had ever since I bought my Z3+. Maybe this patch is a prerequisite for the upcoming Marshmellow-update?

  • Riffienkuningas666 .

    Updating in Finland… Old firmware, what a disappointment :D..

    Haha! Same here! I just woke up this morning with a “software updated” notification and I was trying to find so hard what update I got. But the only version appearing in my about phone tab is still the old firmware 28.0.A.8.266. What a let-down!
