You no longer need a Nexus device to get your hands on Android M early. Sony has made the Developer Preview available on a dozen Xperia devices, including the flagship Xperia Z3, but you’ll need to flash it all by yourself.

It’s been more than six months since Sony announced its Xperia Z3, which means a new version must be right around the corner. And thanks to the leaked image above, we already know what it’s going to look like.
