You’ve probably seen Google unveil Android version 5.0; Lollipop…

 

Since the initial reveal of the Android “L” Developer Preview, we’ve seen lots of questions on our upgrade roadmap about our plans – so, here goes…

We’ll be making Sony Mobile’s Android “L” upgrade available for the entire premium Z series*: including Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1S, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3v, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Sony Z Ultra Google Play edition devices will be first up – we’ll be back with more details on that soon.

We’ll start the upgrade at beginning of 2015 for the core Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 series – continuing thereafter for all remaining devices above.

We’ve been working hard to bring this major update to as many of our Z Series devices as we can, as quickly as we can. We’re really excited about the new Sony features & functionality and the improvements we’ve made to the user experience – and we’ll be sharing more soon… so stay tuned to the blog and @SonyMobileNews for all the latest and greatest.

 

*Software rollouts are a phased process – timings & availability will vary by market/operator. Most models supported but some operator/market exceptions will apply

Re: Android L to Z1 Compact ?

I suspect the compact will receive the L (or whatever google finally call it), update. Question is, how long after it is officially released before it graces our compacts. As for performance, no reason why it shouldn't be optimised. Then again, kitkat has had its problems.

With thousands of bugs with kitkat I'm not sure how weird the phone will behave with lollipop 🍭

Re: Android L to Z1 Compact ?

Still trying to decide on whether to update to KitKat or not.  Did it with my ZL and for practical purposes the phone became a brick due to it.  Sony did replace the phone with a brand new Z1 and am very reluctant to upgrade that.

Android 5 (Android L) Upgrade for Xperia ZR

Hi!

Last 10 Sept 2014, I received a software update from Sony via Update Centre for KitKat 4.4.4.
After the update, I am happy to say, I maximised the use of my device.

I am so excited about Android L and I am wondering if Xperia ZR will be included on the roll-out. If it is, when? There are forums that say, ZR will not be included and that made me a bit sad.

I just hope you could give us some heads-up on Android L for ZR and enlighten us more about this.

Many thanks.

BTW, Sony Smartwatch 3 rocks!
