The two handsets now get firmware versions 27.3.A.0.122 and 27.3.B.0.122, thus receiving the usual Android 6.0 features - Doze mode, Google Now on Tap, granular permissions, and more.

Although Sony is no longer selling a significant number of smartphones, they continue to provide regular firmware updates to the units that were released so far. Now, the time has come for the Xperia C4 and the Xperia C4 Dual to get Android Marshmallow.

The models that get new firmware are E5303 & E5306 (Xperia C4), and E5333 & E5343 (Xperia C4 Dual). The firmware number 27.3.A.0.122  targets the C4, while the C4 Dual will be running the software version 27.3.B.0.122 after the update is complete. The features included are the usual Android 6.0 Marshmallow goodies - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, Direct Share, granular app permissions, new emojis, next to the minor tweaks, fixes, and security patches that come with all such updates.

While the update should reach all these handsets worldwide, there is no official confirmation yet. The Xperia C5 Ultra could also get updated soon, but this has not been confirmed yet, either.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
