In a blog post today, Sony has announced that 14 of their devices will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. No ETAs were promised, but 14 devices is an ambitious list of devices to support. Part of the reason there are so many devices to support is that Sony releases two flagships in their Z lineup every year. The Sony Xperia Z2 was released in April of 2014, and the Z3 followed in September. The “Z3+” (Z4) came onto the market in June of 2015 and now the Z5 in October 2015.

The Japanese technology giant promises to deliver “as quickly as we can” and goes on to say they’re excited about the “new Sony features & functionality and the improvements we’ve made to the user experience”. No details on what those improvements are but more details are surely to follow.

Complete List of Sony Devices to receive Marshmallow:

Sony doesn’t have the most sales among OEMs; in fact, they’re were bad enough to be rumored to leave the mobile space. That rumor has since been refuted by their mobile CEO, but they need to quickly turn their operation around. Sony makes great hardware and close to stock software, so a quick update to Marshmallow might see a return of customers interest in Sony’s phones. They’re pretty hard to find right now. Currently, no carriers have committed to carry the new Z5, but Verizon recently cancelled plans to carry the Z4v. Hopefully, it’s to carry the Z5.
