As for the other Xperia devices that do not have Android Lollipop yet, Sony has plans to update them directly to Android 6.0 Marshmallow by skipping Android 5.1. This move by Sony is quite impressive and for the consumers who own these devices have to be excited.

The Xperia devices that will be getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow while skipping Android 5.0 include:

Xperia M4 Aqua

Xperia C4

Xperia C5 Ultra

Xperia M5

Xperia Z3+

Xperia Z4 Tablet

Sony has not revealed when users should expect to get this update but my guess is that you should start seeing it by the end of the year. Sony has been very fast in pushing out its latest Android updates this year and I do not expect Android 6.0 Marshmallow to be any different.

Keep it here to be informed when this update is finally available for your device.
