LollipopWhilst we await any firm details on Sony’s Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware update, it looks like at least we know what the firmware build number will look like. gbil from XDA has a great track record of upcoming updates on Sony Xperia devices and earlier today he revealed that Lollipop testing has begun on the Xperia Z3.

In particular he referenced “Sony/D6603/D6603:5.0/23.1.X.X.XXX“. This shows that the firmware build number for Xperia Z3 devices will move from 23.0.1.X.X.XX (Android 4.4.4 KitKat) to 23.1.X.X.XXX (Android 5.0 Lollipop). We’ll bring you any other details as soon as we have them.

Update: Looks like one of the initial Android Lollipop test versions for the Xperia Z3 (D6603) has build number 23.1.A.0.75. [Thanks Ben!]

Update 2: Here’s another one for the Xperia Z3 (D6603): Build 23.1.A.0.99 [Thanks Aaron!]

Updated 3: …and another one. This time it is for the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact with build number 23.1.A.0.131.

  • Yaacov Verch

    I do hope Sony take time with their Z4 series ~
    And this time CES 2015 only showcase their other new product and mobile,
    I hope they only showcase the upcoming Android 5.0 Lolipop software update, and the UI update in the update ~

  • BarelyBlurred

    Early 2015 (january or february)

  • Yaacov Verch

    Thanks

    Since now Xperia SP guy won’t come here asking for Lollipop… let me continue his job for asking lollipop update for my Xperia Z

  • David Hvatov

    I just wish we could already see how Sony is going to implement UI changes within the OS and Sony Apps. I love their current UI and Walkman/Album apps, it’s one of the main reasons why I chose Sony. Really curious how they will change.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Sony already said the Z will get it so why waste time begging for it. If anything it will get it last after the Z1 and Z Ultra. And it could be the lady update it gets

  • mrninko

    Hope the evolve lollipop 5.0.1 to update and fix all sofar known bugs and won’t release laggy and buggy firmware as they used to

  • Ritwij

    Start whining when Z3 series get, Z2 series get and even Z1 series get it but Z doesn’t. That’s what SP guys did. (PS – I’ll be here too. I own a Z and Z2)

    I strongly disagree with you. Sony said they want to update more smart phones as their focus, so I highly doubt that they will do the same with the xperia Z series.

  • Nawi

    Totally disagree. Sony says “We’ll be making Sony Mobile’s Android “L” upgrade available for the
    entire premium Z series*: including Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR,
    Xperia Tablet Z”

  • techielover

    Lol there is a difference between a whiner and a sure thing!!

  • Wangshit

    How about l55T?

  • Ritwij

    They will update the Z series but will do it very late.

  • Ritwij

    I know bro. I was talking about the time they take to update phones. It’s too much. By the time they update Z to lollipop, another android version will be launched :P

  • Man

    So sad that my Xperia V wont get the taste of Lolipop…:(

  • Akshay Ballal

    Late as in it will take atleast June to get Lollipop on Xperia Z… That will be so so late…

  • Razvan

    Looooooooooool
    Be aware. I am an ex SP user. Now happy user of z3c :)

    That’s better than nothing. It takes time for the Lollipop build to get optimized into lower-end hardware like the one found in the Xperia Z. Besides, I won’t be surprised if people started complaining when they do get there Lollipop update.

  • Boonerski

    If you want quick and timely updates, buy a Nexus or a GPE smartphone. If you want to take the risk, just root your phone and flash the Lollipop build. OEMs need time to optimize their skin on newer Android software. The lower the specs, the longer it takes for it to be optimized. Be glad that the Z gets Lollipop… Don’t expect it to get Android M though.

  • Girfes

    Ye he won’t come asking cause we got it and its better than Sony’s stock build..way better

  • I really hope Sony takes their time to get this right. I have friends with Nexus phones and they almost universally hate the update. Crazy intrusive notifications, battery problems, no silent mode, etc. Plus the fact that lollipop doesn’t bring many exciting new features and is mostly UI changes. So I’m not really anxious for the update. I’d rather Sony take their time to get it perfect.

  • Ritwij

    Exactly

  • Ritwij

    If Moto E can get Lollipop, Z can surely support the next Android version. Though, Sony won’t bring it. I’m hoping my Z2 gets Android M!

  • Boonerski

    Good for you. The Z will receive Lollipop. Just give it time.

  • Shubham

    Will Xperia E1 Get lollipop ?
    any Info.?

  • Ritwij

    I don’t care. I’m more concerned about my Z2 because its competitors have started getting lollipop (G3/S5) and some have got their screenshots leaked (M8) but still no sign of Xperia UI lollipop (not the AOSP one that Sony released)

  • GrandSlam

    Where is Lollipop for my Xperia Arc S?

  • Nawi

    Where is Lollipop for my Xperia U? T_T
