Re: Android 6 Sinhala font support for Sony phones

In the Android 6.0 upgrade, we will support Sinhala font rendering. This means that if there is Sinhala content in an application, for example when you are watching BBC Sinhala in Facebook, it will be rendered and you will be able to read it. However, the Xperia devices will not support Sinhala as a phone language. We will for example not support Sinhala menus.
