Very unexpectedly Sony Mobile has released Android M developer preview for 12 Xperia devices as a part of Sony’s open device program. Earlier Google released Android M developer preview images for a few selected Nexus devices.
Sony has released Android M developer preview (AOSP Images) for these 12 Xperia devices for the time being viz. Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Compact Tablet, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact, Xperia Ultra, Xperia E3, Xperia M2, Xperia T2 Ultra, and Xperia T3.
Sony releases Android M Developer Preview
Check the video released by Sony running Android M developer preview on Xperia Z3 Compact.
To avoid the confusion, we would like to tell users that AOSP images mean that developers can now test their apps on the preview images before the original Android M is released officially.
Developer preview images are only for developers (not for daily usage as mentioned by Sony; camera and modem are not working for the time being).
Check out the various Android M apps available for download here.
