Marshmallow starts to be available for the Xperia Z5 today. Users have spotted a 32.1.A.1.163 tagged Marshmallow firmware update for the E6653, E6683, and E6603 Xperia Z5 models. Reports are also coming in about a similar update for the Compact and Premium models too.
The updates, first appeared in Thailand and Russia, but the list of countries looks to be growing at a steady pace. Reddit users are reporting that updates have landed in Austria, Australia, Ireland, and Malaysia too. Japan’s NTT DoCoMo began pushing out a slightly different 32.1.F.0.43 build to its customers on March 3rd.
The Marshmallow update packs in the new core Android features, such as Doze mode battery management, configurable app permissions, and Google Now on Tap. Sony has also made a number of tweaks to the user interface, included a new Xperia Home launcher, and made some adjustments to its camera app. However, Sony’s STAMINA mode appears to have been removed with this update and the company hasn’t implemented Marshmallow’s adoptable storage mode for microSD cards either.
So keep calm, Marshmallow for the Xperia Z5 is finally here.
