Sony has so far kept its Android 5.0 Lollipop build for Xperia phones tightly under wraps. We have not seen any leaked pictures of the software, so we can’t speculate how much of a UI change Sony is going with in the new Lollipop update. In one of Sony’s promotional videos for its new Android TV’s, we could have the first glimpse of Lollipop on an Xperia device.
The video relates to the Google Cast functionality that is built into Sony’s new TVs, one scene in the video shows the stock Lollipop notification screen when swiping down on the handset. All of the parts of the UI look the same. We are not saying this is what Lollipop on Xperia will look like, the likelihood is that it is only a mock simulation to get the point of the video across. However, we don’t have much else to go on right now. We’ll let you know if we hear more.
Thanks Aaron and Rimaz!
