Lady FingerGoogle has released a quick teaser video, adding to the guessing game around what Android L could stand for. The video also confirms that this will be known as Android 5.0. All is expected to be revealed tomorrow. What is your guess?

  • Ami

    Really looking forward to see, what Sony UI will look like with this release… :)

  • i love SONY ?

    i can’t wait

  • Alex Baloch

    I really want the whole Xperia Z series especially the original Xperia Z to be updated to android L!

  • Lollipop

    Xperia ZL wants android L! xD

    2015: Sony’s version of Android L on an Xperia Z4…so exciting

  • the_black_dragon

    Xperia Z won’t get Abdroid L. Leaked Update Plan said only devices from Z1 and further will get it. 18 Month Timeframe for Android Upgrades ended in August

  • I’m still pulling for LifeSavers. Google’s implementing all the colors of the rainbow into all their different apps

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Kind of thought Sony would release it to the Z then stop, but honestly Sony did release a lot of updates for a great device, that started the Z line.
    Hopefully Sony releases one last update, and if it’s not L, it’ll at least handle any bugs current users may have.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Could anyone picture a “modern TouchWiz”?

  • Bunny

    haha this is so cute :) Lemon Drop!

  • bao trung giang

    My Reaction.

  • Ninjas

    Lemon Meringue Pie

  • Jam Chua

    i think its gonna be lollipop

  • xperiaDROID

    HTC promise to support their flagships for 2 years since launch. Maybe Sony will do the same?

  • xperiaDROID

    If Sony updates the whole Xperia Z series to Android L, I will give Sony a Like.

  • xperiaDROID

    That’s very Long, a Less Likeable name, no Like. Lollipop sounds way better.

  • xperiaDROID

    I still believe that Sony will update the Z to Android L, even though it’s just a minor chance. The Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset on the Z is still capable to handle Android L; the Nexus 4 has the same chipset as well, and if Nexus 4 gets it, the Z must get it. Also, the Z was launched in the same year as S4 and One M7, if both of them get Android L, the Z must get it.

    So, it’s all up to Sony’s decision.

  • Willian Quah

    waiting for my baby z1 to get update

  • DavidBaik(????????)

    That would be heavy than Kitkat…

  • Krasimir Argirov

    What was that with the Oreo at the end? If it was any hint then it could be a trade mark such as Nestle’s Lion after all.

  • I WANT!!

    My X10 Wants it too!! XD

  • Willy Mularto

    L will stand for Lima

  • Varun

    well so was sony xperia sp capable of running kikat, even L but sony didn’t go further. Don’t keep ur hopes high.

  • Mike

    I’m guessing it will be Lion and Oreo is next. Considering how popular Oreo’s are nowadays it would make for a huge campaign.

  • Jack

    It won’t! And even the devices that will, will have to wait months for it ’cause Sony insists on skinning Android and releasing it with added bugs!

  • Ron

    It’s not a Nexus so it won’t! Even if it’s hardware was far superior than the Nexus 4 it wouldn’t! Why!? Because it’s too much work for Sony! Not only do they have to update the drivers for each chipset but they also have to many newer devices to support and things like the camera app, launcher and the rest of the skin need to be optimized and tweaked of each device

  • Really Disappointed!
  • Mark

    Because most people voted for the most saturated photos! Blind test without uncompressed photos and the same photo take by a high end DSL to compare color, detail etc is stupid. Also you can’t control people voting, you have no way of knowing what they compared to say that was the best or if they even did compare before voting! Take the word of professional photographs who have actually take a look at the uncompressed photos on their PC and not the word of these unprofessional, untrained idiots etc!

  • adi

    I wonder my xperia Z will receive android L or my galaxy note 2 will. :/

  • Jack

    If the past and that supposedly leaked update plan are any indication your Xperia Z will never receive and another update from Sony. Your best hope for a stable updated version of Android is probably a Cyanogen Rom…

  • That won’t happen, we already know it.

  • I agree and i confess i’m really proud of seeing this:

  • Sean

    And foreigners can’t pronounce it at all – no way it will be called that. Maybe licorice, but i don’t care as long as it works.

  • Sean

    It’s 144 mm long :)

  • Ninjas

    Ice cream sandwich is long too. How about Lime Pie, would you like it?

  • AXBiC

    Sony still selling Xperia Z, Why ?

    Sony must update XZ to Android 5.0 :)

  • Adrian969

    Android Lion is my guess

  • They’re not selling anymore…

  • Jack Huge

    so you still think those Z3’s photos are good?

  • AXBiC
  • Khillo81

    Oreo can’t follow Android L; if Google continues its trend, the next Android version will start with M. Mars maybe? ;)

  • Hustlervanz

    A video of an Xperia Z3 that is easily infiltrated with water. :(

  • Rui Filipe Bacelar de Oliveira
  • Ohio

    My Z3 will get update hahaha.

  • Alex Baloch

    To everyone, if sony was supposed to knock us of the list in august, then how come we got an update to 4.4.4 in September? Plus were still getting updates today. I still have hopes for the original Z. It’s what really made sony popular.

  • Rogue

    Agreed ppl voted for the most saturated photos there but the Z3 software isn’t all that good, Sony still needs better software. Superior auto messes up photos more often than not and the detail around the edges of the photos are smudge not to mention the grainy pics. The Mx4 with the same Sony 20.7 sensor does a better job than any phone in the Z series why? Because of better software and unless Sony fixes the software they will be outsold all the time, you can’t advertise best camera in a waterproof phone and fall short, no way that 8,12,13 and the 16 mega pixel cameras on the competition should be better than our 20.7 mp in any condition. Sony needs to fix it’s algorithms and fast.

  • RealityCheck2013

    Lager :D

  • Adi

    Android L = android LOL :P

  • Xperian

    I want 3D animation like VitaOS and transparent background, that’s so classy!

  • SPSX

    These whiny SP users are at it again. Get over it.

  • Varun

    Burn, looks like xperia z owner can’t accept they wont get android L. Btw I am Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 owner. My friend owns a xperia sp, that’s why I know about it. Well I m having a good laugh on your stupid comment.

  • ProWeirdo

    Give that man a cookie!

  • WilliamTell13

    What is this leaked update plan you speak of? Do you have a link?

  • Jaissal S

    Please update Xperia Z1! Hopefully it doesn’t take a toll on the battery. Just fix the lock screen wallpaper issue and i’ll be ok.

  • wared

    Guys Facebook in my z1 is not giving me notification and notifications are enabled, I tried everything possible, I reinstall the app and disabled Facebook apps, no thing works and this is happening only in my account in other accounts notification are working, what can I do?

  • RoberMC

    Well 4.4.2 on the XZ had the battery drain bug, not updating it would have been a crime. And i don’t expect to see Android L on any Sony device before Feb-march 2015, with the launch of the Xperia Z4. That would be two full years after XZ launch.

  • Aisback , lollipop confirmed

  • the_black_dragon
  • kit_kat

    i want this fuking update in my xperia z
    pls Sony

  • MacAllan

    A Lollipop is born..

  • Gaurav

    Sony z scratch test ( shows the toughness of sony Z line up)

    LINK –

  • vigneshprince

    it would be great for my XZ

  • vigneshprince

    Xperia Z is high end so just keeps hoping

  • vigneshprince

    yeah so many version also!

  • vigneshprince

    they are selling here!

  • vigneshprince

    if XZ is to get then ZL too

  • Anon

    I hope that my z1 receive at least one bug fix update for 4.4.4 before march / april when lollipop SHOULD be released by sony.

  • Nawi

    In Argentina is still selling too

  • Zino

    Can you guys reach out to sony if they are gonna provide the z line up with 5.0?

  • Abdul Ghani

    now its interesting too see what sony phones will support android lollipop and its camera features see sony has that painting effects in their camera software ( post processing ) and in lollipop we can control noise and it has super fine jpeg support and raw support so basically this means if sony adds that in z z1 z2 z3 sony will be kings in camera phones ………..but i am guessing that my z1 wont get lollipop so i may have to depend on cm team for lollipop

  • Abdul Ghani

    its true sony phone has poor software u can see noise and compression or the famous painting defects in the pictures heres what interesting that sony could solve this issue by adding lollipop features 1 raw 2 super fin jpeg 3 noise control and final 4 is enable actual bionz then sony phones will have really good pictures

  • Raj Singh

    Any idea if Z Ultra will get 5.0?

  • Jumbo

    Oreo forever!!!!

  • cDh

    Google said that the Google Play edition Z Ultra will get android 5.0 on oct 17. For the regular Z Ultra only sony knows.

  • Alex Baloch

    Still. Some previous xperia flagships had there support for 2 years (T, TX, V)

  • Sumo

    Stick to the subject moron! The 5.0 and not the Z3 fanboy!
