Sony Xperia Z Lollipop treat starts rolling next week
It seems that virtually every day we hear of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update reaching further devices, and today we’re starting with a very nice snippet of news for owners of the Sony Xperia Z. After seeing the upgraded operating system being rolled out to various other devices in the Xperia Z lineup, we can now tell you that the Sony Xperia Z Lollipop treat is to start rolling out by next week.
Waiting for new Android updates can be a prolonged task, especially for users of older devices. It was back in October last year that Sony pledged that Android Lollipop would be made available for every phone in the Xperia Z series, and over recent weeks we’ve seen Lollipop being pushed out to smartphones such as the Xperia Z1, Z2 and Z3. More recently other Sony Xperia phones such as the C3 and T2 Ultra also joined in on the fun.
Owners of the original Xperia Z could be forgiven for thinking that they had been forgotten though, so today’s news will be very satisfying. The news that Lollipop is about to roll came from the official Sony Philippines Twitter account. In response to a customer query asking when the update would be available for the Xperia Z the company tweeted, “Lollipop update for Xperia Z will start rolling out by next week.”
