Sony's new soft keys
Sony's already aiming towards an early-February release for Lollipop on its newest handset, the Xperia Z3, and from the looks of it, the Japanese manufacturer will be debuting some new on-screen soft keys. As you can see in the gallery right below, these look are slightly revamped in comparison with the current batch of soft keys that Xperia users are using on a daily basis. 

It looks like Sony itself teased the revamped navigation keys - these were spotted in a couple of new screenshots from Sony's recently updated Movie Creator app. Much to our surprise, Sony has not fully adopted AOSP's set of soft keys, which resemble the company's PlayStation icons more than anything else.

Of course, a multitude of other Lollipop features will certainly land on the devices slated to get the newest Android update, such as a new default runtime (ART), a revamped carousel-like recent tasks switcher, as well as numerous performance improvements. If you're wondering when Sony's going to updated your Xperia device with Lollipop, you can check out here.
