News about Lollipop updates for owners of Sony Xperia phones that weren’t in the companies much vaunted Z series was pretty bleak yesterday. Sony began telling customers on social media that only the Xperia Z line would receive an update to Lollipop, leaving owners of a number of handsets less than a year old hanging. This seems to have changed overnight with the social media team changing their response to a ‘no comment’ and referring customers eager for the update to keep an eye on their blog.
The news that Sony was possibly not going to update non-Xperia Z phones brought a lot of comments and attention yesterday. It was definitely what we would call a passionate response from even non-Sony handset owners vowing to not purchase a Sony handset based on this. Sony has obviously heard the outcry and there may be a fresh announcement regarding Lollipop updates quite soon, we’ll keep you posted.
