Sony may have ended the Xperia Beta Program for Marshmallow Xperia Z2/Z3 but the company is ready to release Android 6.0.1 for the Xperia M4 Aqua, M4 Aqua Dual, and the Xperia M5. The firmware updates are now available in select key markets. For the Xperia M4 variants, the new build number is 26.3.A.0.131 while the Xperia M5 will be updated to build number 30.2.A.0.100.
We’re not quite sure what’s included in the latest versio but there seems to be no adoptable storage yet. It’s one feature that Xperia M4 and M5 users are clamoring for but sadly, Sony still didn’t include it.
The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for the M5 is only for the E5603 variant (Xperia M5 Dual not yet included). We’re expecting Sony will be updating other variants available in other regions as well. There’s no list of the changes but as usual, expect several bug fixes, device security improvements, and enhancements.
Ever since the Android Nougat was announced, we noticed that companies and mobile carriers are quick to release their own software and firmware updates. We’ve noted a number of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow releases already including those for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, T-Mobile BlackBerry PRIV, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 UK, and Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
