Sony Xperia devices to skip Android 5.1 update and directly go for Android 6.0 Marshmallow

There were reports stating that Sony Mobile will roll out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to a host of Sony devices earlier this month.

But now Sony Mobile has made a further statement revealing that they are planning to skip Android 5.1 Lollipop update and make direct update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

However, this move does not affect those Sony smartphones which had already updated to Android 5.1 Lollipop firmware such as Xperia Z2, Z3, and Z3 Compact etc.

The Sony mobile devices that will receive direct update from Android 5.0 Lollipop to Android 6.0 Marshmallow are as follows: Xperia M4 Aqua, Xperia C4, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M5, Xperia Z3+, and Xperia Z4 Tablet. It should be noted that dual SIM variants of the above models will also receive the update as well wherever applicable.

We shall update on this when Sony officially announce the release date for the update plan.
