Sony may not be prompt enough in bringing Android Marshmallow update to its devices but it has started working on Google's upcoming OS update for its devices. The Android N Developer Preview has now been spotted running on Sony Xperia Z2. It came a few days after the Japanese technology giant released Android N Developer Preview to its D6603 and D6653 variants of Xperia Z3, giving a hint that the firmware could be seeded to the device when it is launched.
Now, XDA Developers forum member Brandon Nel (via Phone Arena) has claimed in a port that he got the upcoming firmware Developer Preview run on a Sony Xperia Z2 device. The developer said that the firmware worked well with the Xperia Z2 D6503 except for a few problems faced during testing, and the download link will be available only after May 3.
Problems listed in the post are:
- Camera is sometimes laggy and once force closed
- Multi-Window is extremely laggy
- Some apps like Beta Program App Settings don't work
- Recovery (TWRP) and root no longer works
Google is expected to announce Android N at its I/O 2016 event that will be held between May 18 and 20. The firmware comes with features like multi-window, direct reply notifications, bundled notifications, efficiency and improved Java 8 language support.
