Finally, Sony also sends OTA Marshmallow goodies to Xperia C5 Ultra
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.
