This slate just received firmware version 32.1.A.1.163, the same that reached the Xperia Z5 lineup and a few other Sony Android devices as well.

Sony Mobile is finally bringing Android Marshmallow to the Xperia Z4 tablet, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. Next to the slate, the Xperia Z3+ handset also gets Android 6.0, accompanied by the entire Xperia Z5 lineup.

All the devices mentioned above get Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based firmware build 32.1.A.1.163. The variants of the Xperia Z4 tablet that receive the update today are SGP712 (WiFi) and SGP771 (LTE), next to the Xperia Z3+ (E6553). The E6553 is the single-SIM variant of the handset, but its dual-SIM sibling should get updated this week as well.

While it is not clear yet if the new firmware brings a new Xperia UI with it or not, the usual Marshmallow goodies should be included - Google Now on Tap, Doze model, the usual minor tweaks and fixes, the latest security updates, and even the new easter egg which is a refresh of the tricky Flappy Bird-style game introduced in Android Lollipop.

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.
