Sony 2

The rollout of Android Lollipop continues unabated for Sony, at least as far as their Z-series line goes, with Sony sharing an update via their Xperia News account that Android 5.1 (Lollipop) will and has begun rolling out to the original Xperia Z Series as well as to T2 Ultra handsets.

The tweet, which was sent out overnight states that original Xperia Z Series users, along with T2 Ultra users should soon begin to see a major software update for their handsets which upgrade them Android 5.1 (Lollipop). The tweet states as follows:

As the tweet said, the rollout is dependent on local variations and telcos. Looking over at the three big telco’s here, the following is the current software update news is:

Vodafone – The following is from the software updates from 4 September 2015:

Telstra – the following is from the software update page effective 3 September 2015:

Basically at the moment, the three major telco’s are either testing or waiting submission for the update, however, given the critical update to fix Android’s known Stagefright issues, it maybe a little more time for OS upgrade to be approved and rolled out here.

I’m not sure. I know HTC and LG rolled it out to their flagships. Not sure about Samsung and Sony.

You have to give it to Sony for looking after its older devices. LG and HTC haven’t provided the 5.1 update to last year’s flagships, let alone older devices.
