Alongside a full fix for the Stagefright exploit, the update also reportedly brings an improved camera, better heat management and more reliable fingerprint sensor. The update has begun rolling out to all variants of the handsets listed above but is dependent on region; on my UK-variant of the Xperia Z5, the update isn’t showing but others have reported the update is available. The update is also available via Sony’s PC Companion software and if it isn’t showing up on your handset, we’d check via the desktop application.
