Sony has been unusually quiet this time about the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update rollout. While in the past the company has given out a specific timeframe for the update rollout, there has been no such announcement this time with regards to the Android 6.0 update.
However, the company’s UK Twitter team finally broke silence recently and revealed that the long awaited update could begin rolling out starting March 7th for select Xperia smartphones and tablets.
According to the Sony UK Twitter team, the first Xperia devices to receive the Android Marshmallow update will be the Xperia Z5 series, Xperia Z4 tablet, and the Xperia Z3+. Confirmed timings haven’t been shared though, as the update is currently not “ready”. Of course, most users cannot expect to receive the update on March 7th, it could take quite a few weeks for the update to spread to all regions. If Sony does begin rolling out the update within the second week of March, we expect most of you to receive the OTA update by the end of March.
Sony’s social media teams haven’t always been accurate with their info regarding Android update rollouts in the past, so we do suggest you take the above info with a pinch of salt. We sure do hope that the info is accurate as Sony has taken quite long already to start pushing the Marshmallow update to consumers. Most manufacturers started the rollout process by the end of last year and have almost finished seeding the update to their flagship smartphones.
Leading Android OEM Samsung too recently announced the Marshmallow update rollout for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphones. Motorola on the other hand has started rolling out the update to its mid-range smartphones as well, including the 2nd Gen Moto G released in 2014.
