Sony has officially released the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to its Xperia Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact.

The reason why the Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 is being updated to the noted model numbers of the Xperia handsets could suggest that those versions accelerates the development a lot quicker by scheduling its release of the update for now, while other versions might receive the same treatment in near future.
Owners of Xperia Z2, Z3 or Z3 Compact including models that were unmentioned will have to wait for the firmware to be ready for their specific versions. Sony has not yet specified the details to when it will occur, otherwise it will be delayed due to further testing.
In addition to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow reaching the Xperia Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact, a report from Xperia Blog reported two new add-ons: Camera 2.0.0 UI and the February Android security patch.
The new camera app interface is also found virtually on the Xperia Z5, which comes with a new features such as adjusting real-time brightness, and the option to choose from different camera modes. While the February Android security patch is not really Google's latest release, but it might carry extra protections for the smartphones.
