Sony has been doing great in the race towards ensuring that all of its compatible devices are installed with Android Marshmallow.
All of its flagships, including the Xperia Z3, have already been updated with this OS. In fact, many of those using this 2014 flagship alongside the likes of Xperia Z2 are still awaiting the verdict on what will happen with Android Nougat update. While this is happening, the tech giant has moved in with a Marshmallow update for the midrange Sony Xperia C4 and its counterpart Xperia C4 Dual.
The Xperia C4 lineup is no more, but Sony is showing some real love to those who still own this device by pushing the Marshmallow OTA update. Although it only came in last year based on the 2014 Android Lollipop, Sony has moved on to unveil a new Xperia X series, meaning the handset will not be seeing a successor in the C series.
Just to give you a heads up, Sony is pushing the latest Android Marshmallow to Xperia C4 models that come with numbers E5303 and E5306 as well as Xperia C4 Dual models with numbers E5333 and E5343. If you are using the single-SIM variant, the update will bring your device’s firmware version to 27.3.A.0.122 while the dual-SIM variant will carry version number 27.3.B.0.122. Sony has not brought out clear details as to why models E5353 and E5363 have not been added to the list of beneficiaries, however, since the OS is already rolling out to other models, it won’t be long before the rest of the pack joins in.
Given that it is an OTA, the Marshmallow update is coming out in phases. As a result, it is possible that you may find your friend using a Sony Xperia C4 already using the updated OS while your device has not yet received it. Don’t panic, instead, simply wait for the OTA notification to show up or alternatively, check for the availability of the update via your phone’s Settings app.
This Sony Xperia C4 Marshmallow update comes at a time when the search engine giant has just revealed the market share of its operating systems. Apparently, Android Marshmallow has just clocked the 18.7% mark, a figure that represents a steady growth from last month’s 15.2%.
