It has been more than a year since Google released Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the search giant has recently released Android 7.0 Nougat. However, some OEMs are still struggling to update their devices to Android 6.0. Well, Sony is one of them. The Japanese electronics brand has now started rolling out Android Marshmallow to its mid-range smartphones, the Xperia C4 and the Xperia C4 Dual.
Sony has started updating the Xperia C4 (E5303, E5306) and the Xperia C4 Dual (E5333, E5343). The update to the other two variants, the E5353 and the E5363, is expected to be rolled out soon. Sony hasn’t mentioned anything about the timeline that we can expect for the Xperia C5 Ultra Marshmallow update. Android Marshmallow comes with battery-saving Doze mode, Nexus Imprint API for fingerprint scanning, granular app permissions, and other features.
Sony recently released two new smartphones at IFA 2016: the Sony Xperia XZ and the Sony Xperia X Compact. The Xperia XZ comes with a new camera setup that includes a 23-megapixel camera sensor with hybrid autofocus technology (phase-detection autofocus + contrast detection autofocus + laser autofocus), 4K video recording, and a RGBC IR sensor for improved colour metering and white balance. It also features a Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB RAM, and 32GB storage.
