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:
Optus – the following is from the software update page effective 7 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.
