Though not easy to come by stateside, the Sony Xperia Z lineup makes a strong showing elsewhere in the world. Since re-dedicating themselves to mobile, Sony has made strides in improving the overall experience on their handsets. An impressive 20.7MP camera adorns the newest Xperia Z flagships, and their Android overlay is slight and appealing. Updates are sometimes the foil of an Android OEM and user, though, as the company struggles to decide how to support legacy handsets. Sony isn’t struggling with that decision at all, and will update their entire Xperia Z lineup.
Via their Sony Mobile blog, the company is announcing they’re bringing Android Lollipop to the entire Xperia Z lineup. That even includes their tablets:
Xperia Tablet Z
Xperia Z Ultra
Xperia Z1 Compact
Xperia Z2 Tablet
Xperia Z3 Compact
Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact
Sony isn’t committing to a hard timeframe for the updates, but says “We’ll start the upgrade at beginning of 2015 for the core Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 series – continuing thereafter for all remaining devices above.”
Though many users were hoping to get a Sony Lollipop in late 2014, early 2015 isn’t bad. It’s a lot better than not getting the update at all, which is something that has dogged Sony handsets in the past.
