Sony Xperia devices will receive Android 5.1 Lollipop update next month
posted by Ben R. / Jun 04, 2015, 7:03 AM
Waiting for an Android update is, for many users, a constant game of will they, won't they? But Sony has taken the proverbial bull by the horns in promising Xperia users that Android 5.1 is well on its way. Those running an Xperia Z device will be among the first to see Android 5.1 hit OTA, with those wielding the M2 and M2 Aqua joining the party thereafter, but even so, this is a cause for celebration for all connected to the Xperia family.
Here, for the sake of clarification, is the full list:
- Xperia Z Series
- Xperia Z1 Series
- Xperia Z2 Series
- Xperia Z3 Series
- Xperia ZL
- Xperia ZR
- Xperia Tablet Z
- Xperia T2 Ultra
- Xperia C3
- Xperia M2
- Xperia M2 Aqua
It's not as though the roll-out has begun just yet, so we'll curb our excitement for the time being, particularly since unforeseen delays can often arise at the 11th hour. With that said, Sony seems pretty chipper in its official blog post on the matter, and given that many Xperia Z devices have only just gotten Android 5.0, we'll expect the subsequent update to be just as streamlined.
We'll keep you updated on the progress of this release, and will let you know as and when the roll-out commences.

I learned my lesson with the first update but this is at least a sign that Sony is trying. Just got Lollipop 5.0.2 yesterday and it's awesome.

I just updated last night and I love it. i just hate the lack of lock screen widgets and cannot understand the new priority notifications system instead of the great old system of silent/vibrate/sound.

That's just awesome! My ZL was on 4.1 when I bought it. Then I got 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 5.0 and now even the 5.1!

This is a very big change of how Sony is treating customers with updates. They may be a couple of months later than others but they are updating a really large amount of older devices. The original Z is now two and a half years old. Also my last updates for my Z2 were always bug free and smooth. Well done! I think there is only one handset that deserved better treatment, the T3.
