sony xperia c5 ultra 3

They say that good things come to those who wait, and that’s the case with the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra.

The Xperia C5 Ultra is finally receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, close to a year after Sony announced that Marshmallow is headed to the handset. Better late than never, then!

The C5 Ultra will add to Marshmallow’s market share among the different Android versions, which was 18.7% as of September 5, 2016.

First launched in 2015 with Android 5.0 Lollipop in tow, the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra picked up its Android 5.1 update back in January. Now that close to eight months have passed, it’s nice to see the Xperia C5 Ultra pick up some Marshmallow goodness.

Note that the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra doesn’t come in a single model: the single-SIM E5553 and E5506 variants will receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the build number 29.2.A.0.122, while those who are rocking to the dual-SIM E5533 and E5563 models will have their dose of Marshmallow with the build number 29.2.B.0.122.

You will be able to download the Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware files for the Xperia C5 Ultra from Xperia Blog (registration required).

None of the updates have been mentioned on Sony Mobile’s Twitter account as of press time, and this OTA update that might take its time to arrive on all devices sold globally. Those who are impatient can always check for the update manually via the Settings Menu. Even if it’s not available yet, you have already waited a good eight months since the last update, so what’s a little more?
