Lollipop for Xperia Z3 Dual, Z1 series and Z Ultra expected next week

by XB on 7th April 2015

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z3 series


LollipopSony Mobile has confirmed the expected Android 5.0.2 Lollipop rollout for a few more handsets. Sony says it expects the update will begin to roll next week for the Xperia Z3 Dual, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia Z Ultra.

Following this, Lollipop will then roll for the Xperia C3 and T2 Ultra, although no specific timing was mentioned. At some point after this, Sony will then roll the update for the original Xperia Z series including the Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z.


Thanks Pranay!

  • Tony Lam

    cant wait to see the update

  • Alexsandro Peres

    Meu Z Ultra aguarda ansiosamente a atualização! ;)

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Backing up everything and prepared to factory reset to Android Lollipop. Z1 user here!

  • Vinicius Araujo

    T2 will be updated, but t3 will not? I really hope Sony will announce more updates soon, because this sounds like a joke.

  • xperiaDROID

    The original Z series should be the ones to receive the Lollipop update earlier than the C3 and T2 Ultra.

    But well, you know Sony’s logic…
    “Flagship or not…it’s old…get a new phone bitch!”

  • xperiaDROID

    Of course they’ll announce more updates soon. If they update the T2 Ultra, they must update the T3. If not, they should just sell off their mobile division.

  • Vinicius Araujo

    Really. From Sony, I don’t know what to expect, but if they confirm just for T2 ultra and C3, it will be their dumbest move ever!

  • Szabolcs Orbán

    one more fucking week

  • u fanboy?

    Sony needs to speed up updates, for customers sake

  • xl77

    The news of the week.
    Thanks sony (update staff)

  • undercoverduck

    remember when februari was still a thing…

  • Roger Carp

    I’ve been following on Lollipop for a while now but i hope I like the change. I am not really a fan of their new design, too much colour for me.

  • brick

    I’m sorry but that’s everyone’s logic. Z owners should consider themselves lucky they got the update at all considering how old your phone is.

  • mountain

    They should have announced this long ago. I really don’t care if they give me the updates in May, June or when ever. I am happy if they have make the announcement in Janurary. – z3 dual user

  • Marcos De La Fuente Sánchez

    Z1!!!!! I wanna cry

  • pelka

    I’m glad to hear this..

  • Szabolcs Orbán

    Okay, but I’m sick of the fact that even a week. You’ve run out of patience

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    How about all Sony phones released after the Xperia Z all get updated. Going from newest to the oldest?

  • Gitarooman

    my S3 never got update earlier than Note 2 or S4 si duh?!

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    waiting with 3 sony xperia z1. one is mine,second is my father’s and third one is my mother’s.my brother’s sony xperia z2 is already updated in INDIA IS WELL.

  • Aswin Harish

    Don’t be greedy dude ,they upgraded all the way from 4.1 to 4.4.4 and have promised Lolipop , why can’t you have some patience

    PS : I also own the Xperia Z

  • phill almeida

    DaFuq?!?!? How about the Z3 D6616?!?!? This is becoming ABSUREDLY RETARDED!

  • Rene Pedroso

    Nothing yet for my Z3 D6653

  • Jaissal S

    So from next week I will be checking my PC Companion and Update Centre everyday for the update. I’m looking forward to it. For my Z1

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    I think they will finish rolling out android 5.0.2 lollipop this month and will be planning to release android 5.1 from may/june

  • Molham Staif

    Finally!!!!!!!!

  • Boonerski

    Update for Z1 is finally coming! Should I factory reset my device before updating or after?

  • shhh
  • Guest

  • malav patel

    If so they always get it late my bell.xperia z got 4.4.4 3 monthe after it was released

  • Marcos De La Fuente Sánchez

    Please, shhhhh (STFU)

  • Sandun Prabash Perera

    fk you sony.i hate you. go to hell

  • rus_media

    How much day in a week according to Sony? Any guess? :v

  • Badr

    Worldwide for Z1 ?

  • theblucandy

    Good news :D

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    99% sure

  • Jaissal S

    I may factory reset afterwards only if the lock screen wallpaper bug doesn’t get fixed after updating.

  • Snorky112

    lol you hate because they give something to you ? >< poor dude

  • RamaKrishna

    when is lollipop gonna be released for Xperia Z3(D6653) ??

  • Szabolcs Orbán

    I hope

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    next week because z3 dual is also D6653

  • RamaKrishna

    ain’t Z3 dual is D6633 ?

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    oh sorry i am wrong

  • RamaKrishna

    Hmm it is ok bro..
    Waiting so eagerly for lollipop..
    I ain’t saying KK is waste,it is just that,I want lollipop..bought this Z3 3 weeks back :(

  • Andre Fernandes

    Meu Z Ultra também…

  • malinalaza

    Good news, but i don’t think i will upgrade to Lollipop. The only thing i wanted from LP is RAW, but we ain’t got that with Sony. There’s no other benefit over KK 4.4.4, which is working perfectly om my ZR.

  • Justin Myo Pinion

    Next week what? the update? or next week they’ll start saying next week each week it’s coming soon…

  • Azar

    S4 got it earlier than note 4 and s4 has been released in the same time frame with Z.

  • 5u5m1t

    Still waiting on the Z3c

  • Azar

    U will need to back up again after 2 months when updating to L. :D

  • Azar

    Just use XperiFirm and Flashtool otherwise you’ll wait until Xperia Z9 is released

  • Govindaraj Meena

    Z,ZL,ZR, Lollipop this year, are next year. Because Sony realise lollipop this phone ‘s, that time all died.

  • Azar

    Z3 will only get 5.1 when nexus gets 5.2. My Tab Z received 4.2.2 on the exact same day as nexus received 4.3

  • plesanz

    Arghhh come on!! D6653 not yet update

  • Azar

    An xperia family :D

  • Azar

    365

  • Jaissal S

    No thanks. I’m not that desperate. As long as I will be able to update, I’m happy.

  • Govindaraj Meena

    Z,ZL,ZR, these phones are out of market, Sony realise lollipop waste these phones already died.next time not buy Sony phone

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    They have good specification and their specifications are better than today’s mid range phones.even moto e has recieved android lollipop which has only 1GB of Ram and 1.2GHZ dual core processor runs lollipop fine without errors.old z series have 2 GB of ram and 1.5 GHZ of quad core processor which more than enough to run lollipop to run smooth as butter.dont underestimate sony.

  • paul

    When is the u.k getting the lollipop update?

    With that logic the Nexus 4 and both Nexus 7s should not be upgraded, the HTC One M7, M8, Samsung Galaxy S4, Note 2 and 3 and any other phone that is “dead” should not be updated. That was the year’s dumbest comment! Congrats!!

    Cool. Thanks for sharing.
    I’m curious to see how 5.0.2 runs on the Ultra.
    I’ve been pretty happy with it on 4.4.4.

  • mukul verma

    thats fake buddy..or photoshoped.

    The ability to move apps to SD card again, is enough for me to upgrade.

    Bout damn time. Wish my PC hadn’t died though I hate using the Xperia Companion :@

  • Igor Eisberg

    I wonder if it has something to do with D6653 being the only TD-LTE/FDD-LTE device out of the international Xperia Z3 variants.

  • Igor Eisberg

    D6653 is single-SIM TD-LTE/FDD-LTE intended for the Asia-Pacific region. D6633 is the only “dual” variant for Xperia Z3.
    I’m thinking that the holdup has to do with the TD-LTE and FDD-LTE’s specific implementations.

  • Davis

    Still no update for my Z3 D6603, when will the update be world wide?

  • GigaSPX

    I still await the lollipop update for Z3v for Verizon in the USA. :/

  • Igor Eisberg

    Keep in mind that even if Sony is a Japanese company – the Japanese variants of their phones never get updated. Example: Xperia Z1 –
    C6902/C6903/C6906: 14.4.A.0.157 (KitKat 4.4.4)
    C6916: 14.4.A.0.137 & 14.4.B.0.56 (KitKat 4.4.4) <- T-Mobile
    SO-01F: 14.3.B.0.310 (Jelly Bean 4.3) <- NTT DoCoMo
    SOL23: 14.3.C.0.239 (Jelly Bean 4.3) <- KDDI JP
    Buying a non-international variant is basically a gamble.

  • Vincentius Phang

    I’ve read this every week now

    Maybe we won’t be so greedy if they just said it’ll be launched in june. Instead of jan oops maybe feb, oops maybe feb next week, oops maybe March, oops maybe april, oops maybe april next week, oops maybe april next next week.

  • Scott

    D6653 is also dual champ… I know as I have one…

  • iCeQubeTomato

    Lol you’re one consumer that lowest your value to the worse possible. Consumers should always demand for more to create more competition in the market. If Sony does this they’ll only get more loyal customers and more people will buy Sony phones, knowing the company will keep their phone updated when the hardware is perfectly capable for more newer softwares

  • raju

    Lollipop update before 19th

  • ash

    Telling or asking

  • ash

    How do you know that, may be there servers for update are different which is not detected by xperifirm . Or have you checked that?

  • iosvsios

    Sony is updating so many phones in their lineup, many more than most OEMs. Yet people here are still crybabies…

  • Scott

    lol, no, just triple checked… turns out it is D6633 :P

  • Official sony xperia twitter also confirmed Z1 series next major update and then T2 ultra,C3 for lollipop and after that original xperia z for lollipop update release.so probably next week Z1 and T2 ultra and C3 will roll out new system update

  • mukul verma

    next week z3 dual, z1, z1c, z ultra, after some time t2 ultra & c3 after that 2 years old z series.

  • mukul verma

    if its not, why is their whats new app instead of PSN, or movies app is movie app not video.

    & xperiablog already shown us how z4 will look like.

    Well our beloved Z is quite old, I think they did they right choice here. Updating newer models before the old ones, despite the old ones are old flagship devices. Yes I have an Xperia z ;)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Wow, I guess your Xperia Z will explode without lollipop?…

  • Timel

    Still No update for the Z3 D6653 :( Dumb Sony.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Well they don’t do a Samsung and releasing half baked software ;)

  • Timel

    and the Z3 D6653.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Exactly, and best of all sonys software is fully tested and won’t include any major bug that will lead to poor user experience! :)

  • Timel

    Same like the Z3. Sony didn’t bother to update their algorithms. Dumb Sony.

  • Timel

    Lollipop for the Z3 6653 will hit on 20th April.

  • Stanley Lu

    That is NOT Z3 Dual = = Dual is D6633…………

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    no, but we simply can’t assume “a week” last for 7 days Eatth’s time equals 7 day Sony HQ’s time. More like 5 Sony HQ days equal to 1 Earth days

    Sure captured thee message is an incorrect statement.

  • mosfett

  • hmmm

    no lollipop for z3…..so I’ll wait for z4 which will come sooner than lollipop for z3!

    Sorry, Vladimir, did not mean to insult. English is not my first language as well. It’s just sometimes hard for the message to come across, even with the use of the translator (maybe I should say: especially with the use of the translator; more often than not, those things produce unintelligible sentences). Perhaps you can just use your native tongue (Russian, Bulgarian, Macedonian…) and whoever is interested can translate (browsers even offer to do that for you these days).

  • Messup7592

    I don’t think you have to remove all your apps/data before the update (unless you have flashed a custom ROM). Just follow carefully the instructions given by PC companion or the update center or the sony’s website

  • Rahul Sangle

    Surprisingly sony has certified the lollipop firmware for 5.1 only for z3 d6653 and z3 compact d5833 on PTCRB…so my guess is it will get 5.1 directly
    Firmware no is 23.2.A.0.278

  • Igor Eisberg

    Different server for updates? No, XperiFirm gets its updates from the same place Sony PC Companion gets them. I know that because I built XperiFirm. If there was a “secret server” I’d know that.

  • Fadi Obaya

    Just clean cache then you’ll be fine. :)

  • Roy

    H is HSPA which is high speed packet access.Its a enchancemnet over 3G and is mix of HSDPA (downlink) and HSUPA (uplink). Major changes were done on radio side which increased the data rates upto 3 and 7Mbps (Theoretically its much more)

    source: http://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-the-E-H-H+-and-3G-that-appear-when-we-turn-our-mobile-data-on

  • Roy

    It looks like that because it usually has a “+” sign beside it and an up and down arrow beneath it, meaning uplink or downlink use.

  • Rahul Sangle

    Maybe direct 5.1 for d6653 as firmware 23.2.A.0.278 is on ptcrb as certified only for this variant and z3 compact d5833

  • Rahul Sangle

    is it direct 5.1 for d6653 as firmware 23.2.A.0.278 is on ptcrb as certified only for this variant and z3 compact d5833

    it is just so great when I received lollipop update…but after I finished the update…i feel kinda regret for it…
    1. Cannot long-pressing for quick shortcut at the notification drawer…i only can get visual effect when I long press…

    2. I have no idea why sony removed the bluetooth unlock function…isn’t that great? I’m just about to start using as I just bought the smartband talk!

    3. Before lollipop I can switch app between contact app and phone app by swiping the screen…but now I need to do extra step by pressing home button then open either one…

    4. I think that’s the most important one…why sony removed the auto brightness-adjusting button!?

    Come on, sony…what the hell are you doing? It gives me the feel of degrading the software instead upgrading the android version…i thought you can do it better since you took bloody long time to lanch lollipop update…you are making the Sony fans sad once again :-(

  • liampaulmassey

    I don’t think I’ll update my Xperia Z1 straight away cos it could have some bugs, I’ll leave it till the update AFTER this

  • Roy

    1. You’re right, I miss that too.

    2. Never used that function so can’t really comment.

    3. You can still open your contacts through the dialer app, it’s the framed face button on the top right beside the extra menus button.

    4. Auto brightness is still in place, they only removed the quick access to it. Under settings/Screen you will still find the auto brightness setting to tick on/off.

    The thing I miss the most is the Close all button when you press the multi-task key (where the small apps are).

  • Roy

    3.

  • Rene Pedroso

    Off topic, does anyone remember the update to the Smartwatch 3 that brought customization to the dial where one was able to add tiles and remove them as well as save your own ones you created. I cannot find it anymore in the Android Wear app since the last update for Lollypop???

    :) good one. “next week” mean it can be a year after or a decade after next week. Coming soon means “not near future”. “Whats new” app of sony should have add a dictionary with their meanings.

  • dreamgs1

    buying expensive xperia and facing issues and bad support , water damage issues .. bad camera quality ..
    how can a person can laugh and understand a joke.
    Leave it.

    jokes also should be expensive then only xperia users can laugh.

  • dreamgs1

    so you mean once sony releases update and it reaches to phone, you will not find bugs? come on .. don’t love a gadget and its maker so much. spend that love some where.
    There is no one under sun can release a piece of software without bugs. And its a fact. better you learn computer science.

  • dreamgs1

    “after” , “later”, “next week”, “coming soon”. Lets write these on home screens.

  • Fadi Obaya

    Z ultra will get tap2wake. Internal source!

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Sure I will find bugs, all mankind made software contain bugs, but sonys software usually don’t contain any bug that will interfere on the daily user experience of the device itself…

  • Jaissal S

    I am glad that we can manage updates in the update centre app. The 1 icon on my iPod Touch 5th gen irritates me all the time! No Apple, I will not upgrade to iOS 8! haha. we can’t even hide these icons…Sorry back to the topic now.

    I’m looking forward to some Lollipop from next week for my Z1. What are people most looking forward to in the update? I’m looking forward to the new design and also Apps to SD card. Keep getting the “your internal storage is 75% full” notification.

  • Fadi Obaya

    It will. I got a bunch of info from internal source.

    Revamped UI, like Z3 and Z2. Art runtime. Tap2wake. Camera improvements. Accurate pen mode.

  • Kima

    what about z1, z1 compact?

  • Kima

    what about z1?

  • Jason Low

    1. that’s a shame now we have to click the small gear :x
    2. i’m glad it is, the previous moment since the last upgrade, my phone’s screen will auto turn on when i start my car or get close to any bluetooth recognised object and thus unlock my screen via pocket touch and once made an international call which i found out quick enough (yes, i have foreign contacts in my phone)
    3. not really any inconvenience as it is about the same as in iOS
    4. well… i don’t miss it so meh

  • No Lollipop update for xperia versions like SP C U etc.?

  • Messup7592

    Lol nope.

  • pgtipsster

    A phone from 2013 is hardly old. Other companies (like Apple) release updates to their phones for 4 years.

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    Accurate pen mode seem promising but it should be like super accurate or feel like writing on paper or something, it also need lots of apps to go with and highlight the feature.

  • brick

    Apple phones are just a few models and the software is proprietary too. If you want apple like updates the only option with android is getting pure nexus devices. You cannot compare apple with customized android phones like Sony Xperia.

  • kobe24

    z3v update? and build number plz

  • Sony Xperia Support

    Hello xperiaDROID,
    You cant expect from us to upgrade phone that is older than 2 years, before something that just almost come out.
    Be happy, there is lot versions that wont recieve lolipop.

  • People that use older versions of xperia should wait for lolipop, after z series recieve full updates, older phones will recieve also upgrades, some of them will not recieve lolipop for sure, from jelly bean to kitkat and such.
    Best Regards,
    Supporter Brian.

  • Fadi Obaya

  • andremacola

    update for Z3 dual D6633 in Brazil =)

  • Tikke Sang

    I updated my Z3 Dual to lollipop, looks nice and smooth and pretty handy options are added, but i am facing heating issue( Ideal the temp is 50 and over) and the camera app will close shortly due to heat rising. another annoying issue is missing of close all button in recent list. seems the rest is OK as far as i checked, any one else having the same issue ?!

    Also Gosms app is not activating dual mode and it can send msg only by sim one

  • ripqhy

    anyone got lolipop for z ultra? not gpe one tho.. :)

  • harish g

    Still no lollipop for Z3 in India?, sony might be kidding

  • Jayze

    Where is the update for Z3 D6653, Z3 is your latest flagship but it is slower than Z1?

  • It will come on your device once google update it for your country

  • Jayze

    Aren’t Sony releasing the update for sony devices? Exactly which party is responsible for the update? Your Official Sony Forum moderator said it’s up to mobile operator in my country release the update, but I’m not bound to any carrier and both Z2 and z1 compact already got the update in my country.

  • Finally got it on my Z1 Compact ! :)

  • kobe24

  • Louise Medado

    I am also experiencing the gosms and heating problem. I think i should uninstall the updates, it sucks

  • Akash Tyagi

    Got it for Xperia C3 Dual…..Finally

  • QUINCY AJAYI

    27th of april i live in holland provider telfort and still no freaking lolipop for my z1 wtf

  • Mariposa

    I updated my z1 a while ago, at first I really loved the update but the problem is as I started browsing my phone it overheats too much, my message won’t open it always says “not responding”, battery drains really fast! and it crashes all the time and restarts on its own. Hope sony could do something about this for the next update. It’s really inconvenient. :/
