Sony Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact’s Marshmallow Update Rolling Out


Sony has started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for select versions of the Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact — its flagship phones in 2014.

Based on Android 6.0.1, the Marshmallow update for the above handsets packs in goodies like a new and improved Camera app, an updated launcher app, and February Android security patch level. All the Marshmallow-y features like App Standby, Doze and improved system performance are also a part of the package.

Due to some underlying changes made by Google, the update removes the STAMINA mode feature from the handsets. Sony, however, plans on reintroducing this feature with a future software update.

While the update is only seeding to select variants of the Xperia Z2 (D6503), Xperia Z3 (D6603), and Xperia Z3 Compact (D5803), it should only be a matter of time before Sony expands the rollout to other variants of the handsets.

Sony had rolled out the Marshmallow update for the Xperia Z5 and a couple of its other flagship devices from 2015 in early March.
