Android Lollipop updates for Sony Xperia C3 and T2 Ultra now rolling out

Android Lollipop updates for Sony Xperia C3 and T2 Ultra now rolling out
At the end of March, Sony promised that it would bring Android 5.0 Lollipop to two of its mid-range smartphones that were introduced in 2014: the Xperia C3 and the Xperia T2 Ultra. Well, the update is rolling out now in phases, which means that owners of the two handsets should be able to get rid of KitKat and replace it with Lollipop starting today. Of course, depending on their location, some users might (and probably will) receive the update a bit later than today. But that's how things go with over-the-air updates anyway.

In addition to delivering great news for those rocking an Xperia C3 or Xperia T2 Ultra, Sony also mentioned that, in the coming weeks, more Xperia Z models would receive Android Lollipop (the original Xperia Z from early 2013 is included here). As previously reported, owners of handsets like the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 have already received their Lollipop updates.

It's not clear why Sony is bringing Lollipop to the C3 and T2 Ultra, while relatively similar smartphones from last year (like the E3, T3, or M2) may never get the update. But perhaps Sony will soon reveal more about this. Until then, you could let us know if you have an Xperia that already runs Android 5.0 Lollipop.

LOL - I know it sucks. Why would anyone get a locked, branded Z3 from tmobile anyway? I just don't get it. Unlocked Z3 (with US warranty) is available directly from Sony and other retailers for the same/lower price and will always be the first in line to receive updates. People who don't care about warranty could save even more by going the eBay route!
