As per @Ricciolo1, a well-known leakster, Sony is aiming to upgrade its Xperia Z5 series to Android 6.90 Marshmallow in January and for older models the same update is planned shortly after the Z5.


Marshmallow comes with a bunch of improvements, optimizations and features that'd be very useful to any smartphone. Battery life improvements and performance boosts are the most noticeable changes to the software. But this is a rumour; nothing is fixed and there is no solid timeline. So take this with a pinch of salt.


Sony has been really good with getting the older devices updated. The Xperia Z (not the Z1) was upgraded all the way to Lollipop 5.1.1, although it had an older Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. Just like many flagships devices that were launched last year (apart from the One A9), the Sony Xperia Z5 is one of the many still operating on Lollipop.


It would be quite interesting to see what Sony has planned for their version of Marshmallow. We know that Sony has been working on a near-stock Android build for sometime and by using the Marshmallow's Doze feature in conjunction with their own proprietary battery saving software, the battery life in many devices can be enhanced.

Japanese girl using xperia in shower

 

Sony is one of the most popular and first company that makes its whole flagship series water and dirt proof, while we are all amazed with that sort of protection that Sony gave to its flagship smartphones Z series (Xperia Z2, Xperis Z3, Xperia Z4... etc), the question that has never been asked is why making it waterproof ?

 

Making a smartphone device fully operational under water is a big deal, especially in the japanese market, the feature is not just used for just protection or premium-look but to Sony it has a whole different reason !

 

Apparently, the exclusive waterproof smartphone's existence is rooted in a peculiar user habit of Japan's female population! ...young japanese teenager girls, to be more precise. According to Panasonic executive "Taro Itakura", 90 to 95% of smartphones sold in Japan are waterproof because young Japanese women prefer to use their smartphones even while they are taking their showers! That's right your Sony Xperia or Sharp AQUOS smartphone are considered as a "must products" in Japan, possibly right next to soap, shampoo, and a trusty sponge all because that young japanese girls like to shower with them.
