Sony releases Android N Developer Preview for Xperia Z3

Sony Xperia Z3 Android N Developer Preview

If you don’t have a Nexus device lying around but you do have an old Sony Xperia Z3, you can now give Android N a shot. Sony has released an official Android N Developer Preview build for the aging Z3 for developers to try their apps on.

Flashing the update is easier than expected. You do it through the Xperia Companion PC software, which guides you through the install. You won’t have to deal with any complicated custom recoveries or ROMs, which is awesome.

Android N brings a host of new features like multi-window, bundled notifications, an expanded Doze mode, and more. All this will allow developers to make their apps compatible with Android N before its release. It’s not daily driver software, it’s still a preview and not an official update, but if you have Xperia Z3 lying around as a spare, give it a shot!
