You read that right — if your Sony Xperia phone is from the Z line, you’re getting Lollipop, no questions asked. Sony confirmed that much in a blog post today, and in case you’ve forgotten how many devices fit the bill here’s a handy dandy list:

  • Xperia Z
  • Xperia ZL
  • Xperia ZR
  • Xperia Tablet Z
  • Xperia Z1
  • Xperia Z1S
  • Xperia Z Ultra
  • Xperia Z1 Compact
  • Xperia Z2
  • Xperia Z2 Tablet
  • Xperia Z3
  • Xperia Z3v
  • Xperia Z3 Compact
  • Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

Sony says the core Xperia Z3 and Z2 models will be first in line with first upgrades expected to begin in early 2015. Timelines for the rest of the phones are still up in the air, though we’re sure Sony will work to get it out as soon as they can. That’s the extent of what we know about their plans to this point so we’ll be patiently awaiting more details from the Sony camp as the months tick by.
