We are at the end of the year and is usually the time when some companies traditionally decide to start releasing new versions of Android to its top end devices. Those flaghships have already built in the right to have the first update just in the price, in this case Sony has it with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It was in Japan where it has been seen a few days ago a picture that confirms that some Sony devices have gone through the certification office wireless with the latest version of Google’s mobile OS installed.
As you can see on the picture, the operating system of those units that have leaned on that office and took pertinent installation of Android 6.0 Marshmallow which has served to some media in the country, speculate an imminent update which could be released next week and this would affect the main operators such as NTT Docomo, Au or SoftBank.
If so, particularly in the case of Sony Xperia Z5 does not mean it is going to jump quickly to other areas but certainly reveal Sony plans to start soon with the update of its top end. Apart from these two models (remember that the Xperia Z4 did not come as to Europe), we have seen how in other territories in recent days could find traces of Xperia Z3 terminals that have some facilities already testing Android 6.0 Marshmallow, in what looks like a Beta phase intended for end shortly.
What remains for us to know is whether Sony will want to maintain the hierarchical order of its smartphones and start from LIFO. That is, first upgrade to Android 6.0 to those newer devices (and more expensive) Z5 and then we go down to the rest of its range which, by the way, are the names that have the privilege of having met Marshmallow:
Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z Compact, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia M5, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M4 Aqua, Xperia C4.
