Sony Confirms Android 5.0 Lollipop Rollout Begins Next Week

Sony is one of the few handset makers that has yet to start delivering Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its smartphones. To make things worse, the Japanese company let it slip several days ago that it has no intention of upgrading its non-Xperia Z devices to Lollipop.

Since most customers prefer low- to mid-range smartphones, it's unusual for a major company such as Sony to ignore the vast majority of its fans. Obviously, there are many users who purchased Xperia Z phones, but they aren't the majority. Anyway, the fact that smartphones that have the required hardware specifications will not receive Android 5.0 Lollipop update from Sony doesn't bode well for the Japanese handset maker. A few days after it announced it won't offer Lollipop to non-Xperia Z devices, Sony backtracked on its initial statement and said that its has no comments on the matter for the moment.

That made us believe there's still chance for those who own non-Xperia Z smartphones. Apart from that, some Android 5.0 Lollipop screenshots taken on the Xperia C3 added to the hype. Until Sony eventually brings Lollipop to non-Xperia devices, there's still the matter of Android 5.0 arriving on Xperia Z smartphones and tablets, which is not yet available.

Xperia Z3 will be among the first to receive the update
Sony Mobile Indonesia confirmed a few days ago that Android 5.0 Lollipop will be released beginning next week, but at least three Xperia smartphones will be getting the update in India as well. Now Sony Mobile France confirmed the same information and stated that Xperia Z3 will receive Android 5.0 Lollipop update as early as next week. The Xperia Z3 won't be the only smartphone to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop next week, but the order in which these devices will be upgraded is unclear yet.

Sony Mobile has yet to come out with an official statement regarding Android 5.0 Lollipop for its devices, but we expect more details to leak in the coming days so stay tuned for more info on the matter.
