Ola Olsson: “Even if we really wanted to give you N on the z3(c), we wouldn’t been able to do it. Not if we wanted to pass the Google CTS.

 

 

Zingo Andersen: “The reasons are both technical and legal. If you followed the N Developer Preview program you know that we didn’t release the final DP5. That program ran into some unforeseen limitations that could not be resolved. This is the reason that both concept and official won’t be upgraded to Android N.

 

Update: 

 

Android N official name: Nougat

Here is a great hands on article

If you have a nexus device and you are willing to try it

 

https://www.google.com/android/beta?u=0

 

keep in mind that it shouldn't be used on a everyday device. 

 

 

There's no information on any other phone running Android N, keep in mind that Marshmallow was just released to the Xperia family.

I think there is a good chance that Sony has dumped the mobile phone business by the time Android N is available...

 

If the time is taking to deploy Marshmallow can be used as an indication, then the Sony Mobile development workforce has been decimated.

I think it is safe to say that for most Xperia phones Android N will stand for Android Never...
