If you cast your mind back to June 2015, you may recall that Sony detailed a list of devices scheduled to receive the Android 5.1 update. Sadly for Xperia M4 Aqua owners, the handset appeared to be missing from the lineup. However, in October, a leaked roadmap surfaced disclosing that the M4 Aqua would, instead, make a leap directly from Android 5.0 to Android 6.0, but poor credibility of the source guaranteed we took the information with a hefty pinch of salt. Today, though, the Japanese company confirmed that it will be doing just that.
While responding to a query on Twitter earlier, Sony revealed that it will skip the Android 5.1 update for the Xperia M4 Aqua and will push out a direct upgrade to Marshmallow. Unfortunately, the firm failed to provide an estimated timeframe for the rollout, but at least we know it’s on the way. If Sony’s track record for mid-range updates is any indication, we presume that it may start making the rounds sometime in May.
@KarCerKK Regarding your question the Xperia M4 Aqua will skip Android 5.1 and will receive Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
So there you have it, folks. Sony has confirmed that it will make the jump from Android 5.0 to Android 6.0 on the Xperia M4 Aqua. What feature are you most excited to see on your device from the latest version of the open-source operating system? Be sure to let us know in the comments section below.
