No one knows, you have 2 options
1. wait for the update to be approved and released in your country, if your phone is or was locked to a carrier/network branded, it will be up to them to approve and release the update
2. manually update your phone with Flashtool

the phone was becoming more and more stable (and battery lasting better) until today...
5 days on from upgrade and...
still seeing the odd sudden shutdown
the music player is "dull" for 2 minutes then suddenly the music "comes to life" - as if the equaliser is dulled then turned up on all settings...
the phone overheats very very quickly using the camera apps like "motiongrapgh" and displays the "device getting hotter" warning...
Z3+ looking like it will be ordered end of August unless there are signs of an Autumn replacement coming...

Wifi keeps dropping out on both Z1 and Z1 compact. Everything else is OK, sort of. Did a restore 2 days ago. At least that made the excessive battery drain and heating go away...
So it's 2 days after a restore via PC companion, now what do you suggest?

just seen that another version of the o/s has been certified... perhaps my .270 will soon get replaced?
otherwise will have to waste a lot of time "factory resetting" to try and solve the show stoppers...
1) heating issue that starts soon after "music" app is used
2) the music app is "quiet/muffled" for a couple of minutes before then becoming "loud" as if the equaliser etc dont work straight away
3) the camera is near useless - at least any of its apps are, as it begins warning of high temps very quickly after launching
and some daft annoyances...
such as) while i can set notification noises that are mpeg files for gmail, sms, whatsapp... i cant for the email app... it allows me to pick one and then it just reverts back to pixiedust or something.
