Rogers Canada Xperia Z3 Lollipop update expected in March; Z1 in April

by XB on 6th February 2015

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z3 series


rogers-logoCanadian operator Rogers has listed on its website when it expects to receive firmware updates for various handsets. This includes the Sony Xperia series where it flags that the Xperia Z3 will receive the Lollipop update in March 2015, whilst the Xperia Z1 Lollipop update is expected to arrive during April 2015.

Obviously, generic firmware versions are expected to be released earlier than this. However it gives some indication when handsets other than the Xperia Z2/Z3 may start to receive the update. Sony has said that the Xperia Z3 update will start seeding this month, so as soon as we hear any news on that front we’ll let you know.

Rogers Lollipop Update

Thanks Dakota and Felipe!

  • Fiiliip

    What? I espected in this mounth!

  • Denis Gajdacs

    Bro. Just relax. This update in March will be only in Canada and ONLY for owners Rogers mobile :)

  • Niek van Rijswijk

    Relax, this is from a carrier, which first recieves the firmware from Sony and then they must test it and then it rolls out.

  • Fiiliip

    heart continues to beat

  • arabic991

    it is only for Canada or what ?

  • Diogo Simões

    What about the beta testing for Z3 that happen in Sweden?

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    I remembered Sony said that they would release this update faster this time… HTC ?, Samsung ?, LG ?, Sony … (Early next year! :-D … February! :-) … End of February :- … Some might receive it in March? ;-( … But that’s just for the Z3 owners! O:-) If you own Xperia Z or Z1… No official date set yet.)

  • name

    so if z1 comes a month after z3 (rogers) then it might come a month after z3 aswell (generic). fkn sony might have to wait another month.
    wish sony gave ANY confirmation about z1 except it coming after its barely diff core devices.

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    That was just for one month in December last year in Stockholm & Gothenburg. Now Sony Mobile Communications head (firmware) office in Lund working on Lollipop for Xperia Z3 day and night :-)

  • z2 ly

    I hate you sony </3

  • name

    Second carrier to publish a date. (Voda and Roger)
    it look like they have been in comms with Sony regarding the update.

    Lollipop update expected in Feb, they mean Febreuary, 28, 2015 at 11:59:5999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 PM

  • YuuriAyano

    Really hoping Z1 updates comes earlier than that.

  • Snorky112

    5.0.X has too many issues, sony doesnt want them, so they must be waiting for 5.1 this month to release a good firmware with less (close to none) problems and bugs

  • bao trung giang

    Apri?! OMG :(

  • Raj Singh

    If it means that much to you, don’t buy carrier locked phones…

  • name

    i have an unlocked z1 i just want android l asap

  • abc

    just rogers in general i guess

  • Winter Soldier

    is there any leaked screenshots of xperia z3 lollipop

  • Kevin Rodriguez

    I have a xperia Z1 and I’m supposed to wait just because my phone’s older…

    Not complaining , but I just wanna see at least how Lollipop’s gonna look like on a xperia device.

  • Apparently everyone in this comment section lives in Canada and uses Rogers.

  • John

    Will Sony release lollipop for Xperia ZL ? Z series.. Seems like no news.

  • Unk

    Hello everyone, i really need your help. After reading this article, I would like to ask. As we know, lolipop is designed for 64 bit proc. But, why xperia z1 and z3, which have 32 bit proc, will be able to run lolipop???

    Thanks in advance

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    better late then never. :-)

  • Android Lollipop is designed for both 32-bit & 64-bit because of the ART runtime.

  • Unk

    Thank you for replying, what is ART btw? And, it means it is still safe for me to buy today’s 32 bit table, for example xz3 tablet??

  • Sony should do as Nexus 4 that are using the same chipset are updated to Lollipop.

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    For the same reason that you’re able to play dvds on a Blu-ray player and get better picture quality :-)

  • ART is a runtime that replaces the Dalvik runtime in Lollipop. It is better than Dalvik in terms of performance.

    However the drawback is the app size will become bigger.

  • Zidhin Mohd

    Nop..didn’t even see a single one…

  • Maulana Yusuf

    I don’t really care of sony android update anymore. Promises but late to deliver, i am sorry for this

  • Shehab Skull

    What about xperia z guys .__. They didn’t say anything about it in addition to it didn’t get aosp built like z3/z2 and z1
    I don’t want to be like an xperia SP user :’3

  • Eduardo Otero

    They told after MWC, that many stupid ones remember it happens on February and understood beginning of February is not the same.

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    I don’t know why people here act senseless and silly. They know they are reading that generic versions are bound to receive the update early, despite only two words clink their mind….. “LOLLIPOP” and “APRIL” and then shouts, “Sony is always late”…….

  • Tasfique Enam

    Update always happens on tuesday and wednesday

  • Hugo Mathee

    Sorry Sony

  • willowhiu

    It ‘supports’ not ‘only supports’

  • willowhiu

    Go get other carriers notably play edition or nexus phones and stop complaining

  • willowhiu

    I mean phones from other brands

  • Emil Oskarsson

    We will get an upgrade to android 5.0 but remember this: Our Xperia Z’s is over 18 months old and Sony still wanted to upgrade it to lollipop. So i dont care if i get the update in march or even april, as long as i get it. Great support from Sony anyway providing us with android 4.2.2, 4.3, 4.4.2, 4.4.4 and now android 5.x.x :) So kepp in mind, they didnt have to upgrade it to any further android version, but they decided to do so anyway :D

  • Emil Oskarsson

    The apps is still smaller then the ones on the Iphones, ipads though. Just about 10-20 MB bigger on lollipop with ART :)

  • Shaik Farooq

    Sony atleast give an update of the update.
    ur still very slow.

  • ash

    Z1 global version will indeed be faster than this

  • def

    they are, lollipop supports 64bit but atm there are few 64bit devices so its more useful for the newer ones coming soon. but these will run lollipop np.

  • kaostheory

    More interested if remote play is added to any devices. Any updates?

  • Maria

    Sony better late then ever first of all manufacturers after Google to get Android 5.02 then why it took Long time att rather a bug Free version than shitty 5.0/5.01 Only with bugs

  • mukul verma

    hahahah..lol..i was just pulling his leg..:P

  • rygarto

    I really wonder why is everyone in such a frenzy over their mobile OS?
    I hardly remember what was the difference between 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 on my Z2. Most important on my phone are apps, battery life and speed – and Z2 hardware can deliver that just fine right now.
    If I had to choose between waiting an extra month and running a buggy Lollipop release, I’d sure prefer to wait.

    I find it pretty insulting that Sony are this far behind.. Sure they’re quick to announce it though lol.. Funny though as some pretty old phones are already running Lollipop

    Today “SONY” is not a popular brand anymore, Sony should wake up and smell the coffee and This year which is another year that the Sony new flagship phone is going to fight with Galaxy S6, Note 5, and the Lord of the smartphone “iPhone 6s”

    The time is running out for Sony and if Sony do nothing with its marketing, weak marketing and still stuck with the same old boring design and still can’t blow people’s mind with new cool innovations, if the new qualcomnm chipset and the higher resolution and bigger size of a screen are all the Sony 2015 flagship phone has, I’m so sure everything(Sony’s mistakes) is going exactly the same… you know what I mean fanboy… LiKe always we will have to hear Sony screams about the bad news again, Sony will be lose its money again and in finally Sony Mobile will definitely bankrupt… And yeah looks like My dream is gonna comes true in soon.

  • azzido

    Hi Sony, as a Z2 user I hope you have something special for us and this is the reason why it takes so much time to deliver, otherwise you are again long time after other brands…. last again in competition :/

    Hoping for new fresh and nice UI, new camera app and features.
    All WITHOUT bugs, at least not a huge ones like “hey, I cannot make a call using my phone on lollipop…” …

  • omar

    MATERIAL DESIGN! :D

  • Simo

    Ovvio

  • ghi

    well 4.4 to 5.0 is a bigger step than 4.x updates were. i like material ui aswell, looks nice.

  • Nawi

    Your dream is put a Samsung phone in your colon

  • nick

    Y r devs lazy??? It sucks..to see other oems..being taken care by their devs..but sony’s are on vacations!!!
    It sucks to see moto e owners bragging about their phone going to get it…i know its a hard job to implement sony ui on pure android but..sony has not even started the race whereas other oems are half way..

  • Timel

    If Saying the truth means I’m trolling you guys, sorry I can’t help it.

    And Why Sony’s brainless fans have to against Samsung all the time, Do they think I’m a Samsung fan or they thought I use Samsung phone or something? LoL what they did that?That’s nonsense whatever and it shows how stupid Sony fanboys are… LoL so pity them

    Oh! Maybe They’re just too coward and so jealous
    Becuz Sony sucks and dying, while leader innovations like Samsung and Apple are bigger and better everyday!

    In fact Sony isn’t the same level as Samsung and Apple,

    Sony is the same level as Oppo, Acer and other on name Chinese brands on the market!

    Whatever who cares bout Sony… A junk company!

  • draid

    No you’re apple fanboy it’s way worst then Samsung fanboy. Boring design? Haha. Sony will alway be large company because they produce tons of electronics. And your beloved apple use hardware from Samsung and cameras from sony. But obviously you’re stupid enough to realize that.

  • draid

    Really?

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I miss those days where you get to flash leaked firmware and see how it is. I guess Sony just want us to be surprised with the LP. Well hope we won’t be disappointed.

  • xxxx

    apple sucks…..camera sensor is from sony… maybe apple can’t build any sensors….other thing is why is note 4 also get their camera sensor from sony?????

  • Yasir Fawad

    I am a die hard Sony fan, but they literally ****k their consumers. Each flagship from major manufacturers have got the update 5. I don’t know what’s going on in Sony. By such strategies they will loose customers.
    I don’t know why we care so much about Sony.
    I don’t know why can’t they pace up with the rest of the industry.
    Only they can be hacked.
    Only most of the reviewers online criticize most Sony products. NAME XPERIA.
    But still we are Sony fans.

  • Snorky112

    lol the guy wrote innovation and and samsung in 1 sentence XD, must be a troll

  • Snorky112

    I actually prefer sony Android devices for the UI

  • Snorky112

    nope sony does good job, stock android 5.0.x is buggy as fuck, other brands said they’ve updated but they didnt change many things and they’re stuck with a buggy firmware, sony does great job waiting everything to be ready to use

  • nick

    Well if only they give bugless.. But past doesn’t support sony

  • Snorky112

    non ci sono cambiamenti

  • Snorky112

    Don’t think so, it may be 5.0.1 or even 5.0 but not 5.0.2

  • Eduardo Otero

    Yes, they did, actually if you see official news, you’ll see it besides taking in mind dates of Vodafone AU and Rogers it’s almost a fact that Lollipop will roll out after Sony’s press conference.

  • Timel

    But why the results show that Sony flagship phone’s camera worst than Apple, Samsung and some Chinese brands? Z3 has the worst auto mode among competitors what a shame Hahahah Sony is so lame!

  • kaostheory

    Only a few complainers here, most like us don’t notice much of a difference. I don’t even care if I get the update because there’s nothing really new…..unless they include remote play for Z1…

  • RealityCheck2015

    If Lollipop improves my phones speed(not that my Z1 is slow or anything anyway) & my phones battery life(battery life is normal to anyway) then i am looking forward to this update but if it’s just a stupid redesign then what is the point?!?!(so far it just seems a silly pointless redesign i.e YouTube, Gmail(it has silly bugs now) :-/ , Walkman Lollipop updates add nothing worth shouting about) LoL:D

  • EleanorGoreng

    how do you know Xperia Z3 has the worst auto mode? have you been using Xperia Z3 lately?
