Android Marshmallow-15

If you own an Xperia Z3 or an Xperia Z3 compact, then listen up. Sony is letting up to 10,000 people who own those phones test Google's latest operating system early. Yep, you could be among the first people on the planet to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the Xperia Z3 or the Xperia Z3 Compact.

The initiative is part of Sony's "Concept for Android" that lets folks trial new software before its released to the public. The test will be conducted with users in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Germany, Sony said.

"The software is built on some of the key feedback from our first "Concept for Android" — the users helped us create an experience built on the fundamentals of prolonged battery life, smooth and fast performance, sleek user interface, Sony apps and experiences and frequent, timely updates," Sony said on its blog. "Rather than merely previewing a new software version, this is about a proof-of-concept way of working, whereby we build a new user experience – and more importantly, process – from the ground up, that will also allow us to be more responsive in developing and rolling out the Sony Android upgrades Xperia users want, more quickly."
