Sony promises Lollipop for every single device in the Z series



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.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Suh-weet. Can’t wait to pick up my z3v.

    1. Ok admittedly a dumb question but it’s the only doubt I am having on the Sony….how do you do a hard reset? With my Note II I was always able to pull a battery and I’m worried about a solid state unit.

      1. Pull open the seal where Sim card slot is. They have a button you can press. May be under different flap depending on device. Also a nice hold down power button and volume button does it.

        1. Thank you

  2. Holy. Cow. Nice one, Sony! :D

    1. Just in time right.
