For some reason, Xperia series may not making a lot of moneys, the manufacturer of Sony has been one of the few OEMs around the world to cater to the cravings of its more hardcore fans: The Xperia Beta program was in an effort to allow peoples who wanted the latest and greatest Android to receive it months ahead of the official roll-out, and in the process said users were a kind of de facto guinea pig for bug bashing and glitch catching.
As everything was good actually, the program has been finished now. Sony has confirmed the closing, which makes the final firmware build number 23.5.A.1.238.
From Sony, “in the coming days” there will be a new official firmware update that will be pushed to all Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3 owners. All those peoples who participated in the Beta(past) program will be automatically updated.
It is not confirmed if the Japanese conglomerate will be initiating a similar software solution for users eager to get their phones on Android Nougat, which is Google is expected to deploy in October. Given the massive lead time OEMs typically required to get devices updated – if the process occurs at all – it’s conceivable Sony may bring another beta, but at this point it’s anyone’s guess.
