Both handsets have just begun to receive Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and the latest security updates.

Sony is not quick when it comes to Android updates, but it is good to see they are not dropping support for the handsets that still did not get Marshmallow. This week, the time has come for Sony Xperia M4 Aqua and Xperia M5 to finally receive Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

This Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware update for the Xperia M4 Aqua and M4 Aqua Dual was expected to include adoptable storage, but multiple users confirmed already that this feature is not available. The new firmware build for these handsets is 26.3.A.0.131, while the Xperia M5 gets 30.2.A.0.100. The update comes with the usual Marshmallow goodies, including Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, new emojis, TouchWiz UI updates, as well as various minor tweaks and fixes.

The update rolls out globally and should reach all targeted devices soon. In addition to the above, it should also come with the latest security patches included.

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.
