The Sony Xperia Concept for Android Marshmallow firmware is the first stage of Sony’s more broad Marshmallow roll out for their Xperia devices. Sony is looking to rollout a more traditional Marshmallow experience to Xperia owners, however they are toying with a much cleaner UI in their concept software, which they are making available to selected owners of the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact.

The beta style testing program has now begun and screenshots of the concept software are now leaking out. The cleaner look of the Android 6.0 based concept, is much more AOSP in feel, but still retains the familiar Sony style in certain aspects – dat clock.

Spots were limited to 10,000 users and only those users in the above select European nations.

The app was not found in the store. 🙁

For everyone else, you can now download the ROM from XDA Developers to flash to your Xperia Z3.

Are you interested in looking at the Xperia concept software for the Z3? Would you flash it if it was available?
