Sony today said a limited number of people can download and install its concept user interface for Android 6.0 Marshmallow on either the Xperia Z3 or Z3 Compact. Sony says the concept is rolling out slowly over the coming weeks and will be updated over time with new features and experiences. Sony is using this program to test what will eventually become its signature user interface for devices running Marshmallow. Participation in the program is being kept in check so Sony can manage it more easily.
Sony revealed a new line of Xperia Z-class devices today, including the Z3 flagship and its close cousin the Z3 Compact. Here are our first impressions of these two winsome handsets, in addition to the mid-range E3.
