Well, it practically took forever, but Sony seems to be officially done with Android 6.0 updates at long last. Remember the OEM’s Marshmallow-eligible device list from way back October 2015?
It’s completed now, as the mid-range Xperia C5 Ultra finally follows in the footsteps of the C4, M4 Aqua, M5, plus new and old Z-series flagships including the Z5, Z5 Compact, Z5 Premium, Z4 Tablet, Z3+, Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact, Z2, and Z2 Tablet.
Any hopes of some other phones or slates being added to the M roster at the last minute, despite Nougat-optimizing work having started for a handful of the above? Not really, although miracles can sometimes happen.
Before they do, let’s show a little (contained) enthusiasm for the C5 Ultra’s sweet but tardy software makeover. This selfie-specialized giant is still a measly one year (and a month) old, so technically, it should qualify for another, final major UI revision.
For the time being (and the next 12 months or so), Android 6.0 Marshmallow will have to do, nicely complementing a respectable (even by late 2016 standards) spec sheet, octa-core MediaTek power, 2GB RAM, 1080p 6-inch screen and all. Alas, if you weren’t quick to snap up the dual 13MP cam-sporting phablet last month at $190, you’ll now need to spend at least $250 on it.
