Recently we reported that Sony had confirmed the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for these devices, and that it should be arriving before the end of this month. That has now happened, as Sony has just begun pushing out Android 5.1 for the Sony Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet, Sony Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
Users of these devices may need to be patient though, as although the update has started to roll out Sony states that timing could vary according to region and individual carriers. The update will bring various improvements and new features to these devices, including added customization options, new LinkedIn integration, camera enhancements, SmartWear integration and more.
Sony also states that the next in line for the Android 5.1 Lollipop update are the Sony Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact, and Xperia Z Ultra. It’s said to be arriving for these devices “over the coming weeks” and will then follow soon after to the Xperia T2 Ultra, and Xperia C3 followed by the original Z lineup.
