Re: When will we get the Android 6 marshmallow update?

Hi @bounsir

 

The update will first need to be authorised by your network or country before Sony is authorised to release it to your device. Also operator locked phones takes much longer that other phones to receive their updates because they have to be extensively verified by the carrier before release. You can check these links for more information:

I´m at disposal for any question.

M5 Update

Hello,

Is there a schedule of some kind to look at about when M5 users are going to get new Android updates?

There is a lot of info about new M5s having Android 5.1.1 out of the box, and that eventually, there's going to be Android 6.0 on this device.

 

Will appreciate comments, confirms, anything.

 

TY.

Re: M5 Update

The official statement from Sony (Source), Xperia M5 is among the priliminary list of devices that will get Andoid M update. But regarding the timing, this was the exact statement:

"We’ve been working hard to bring this major update to as many of our devices as possible, as quickly as we can."

 

Sony usully don't give exact timings about updates unless it has been approved and due release, so keep tuned on the Blog site to know the news.
