Reports are suggesting that Sony Mobile's flagship handset could be scoring an upgrade to Android 6.0 in the near future

Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been tooling around for a few momths now, first launching on Google own Nexus devices back in October 2016.

The operating system has been slow to spread outside those handsets, with a few manufacturers like LG getting in on the action early. Moto X Play phones recently recieved the update and it looks like Sony Mobile is getting ready to join those ranks. We heard the that Android 6.0 for the Xperia 5 range has been ready for a few weeks and some users in Turkey are reporting that they've received the latest version of the OS.

Android 6.0 seems to be landing first on the Xperia Z5 main handset, with the content set to be pushed to the smaller Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium in the coming days. A regional release like this is usually part of a final test, which bodes well for the rollout around the rest of the world shortly. That's good news for Sony mobile folks, and the mid range Xperia M4 Aqua was also recently confirmed to be getting the 6.0 update.

More as we get it.
