    Yayayay you know what this means, Good old Xperia Z is also receiving the 5.1 update as well.

  • kido

    How bout z3 compact D5833???

  • It’s a Play edition device. Google rolls updates, not Sony. So Sony might decide 5 will be last for Z.

  • They not decided to which devices to upgradeable 5.1 lollipop version.but i think more than 50% chance having for classic xperia z

  • Ritwij

    There is a big difference in the hardware of Z Ultra and Z. Please don’t mind, I don’t mean to be rude but Z isn’t getting 5.1

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I’m fine with “just” Android 5.0.2 for my Xperia Z, I mean it’s an old device by now :)

  • Fadi Obaya

    Actually they have the exact same hardware.

  • premanandh kumaravelu

    I got the updated in my GPE model yesterday… frequently restarting… the phone freezes for a few sec and restarting… dont know where to report…

  • Svetoslav O’Conner

    Hey, Sony fans. I just received Android 5.0.2 update on my Xperia Z2. The UI is incredibly cool and fresh looking. Cheers :)

  • Ostap Koloda

    I think D5833 will go directly into 5.1, by hitting new build 23.2.A.0.278 according to :

    But what stops you from flashing any of the 5803 available firmwares for now? I’ve done it 2 weeks ago and so do a lot of people already. It works perfect, you can flash any of the D5803 on D5833 – no bugs at all :

  • Ritwij

    Sorry bro. Z Ultra has Snapdragon 800 and Z has Snapdragon S4 Pro. Z Ultra and Z1 have similar hardware.

  • Ritwij

    I had a Z too, I loved the device and it has hardware capable of running even future Android versions so hopefully XDA will help Z!

  • apolloa

    That’s nice, meanwhile here in the UK I AM STILL WAITING FOR ANDROID 5.0 FROM SONY!!! yes I am shouting. An they get their act together?

  • xl77

    Good for you.

  • mukul verma

    Factory rest your phone..

  • xl77

    If xperia z get 5.1 it’s like getting end year bonus after few month working.

  • brick

    Here’s a few options for you :

    1. Sell Z3 and buy a nexus (day one updates) or Google edition device (faster updates)
    2. Sell Z3 and buy another brand (maybe faster updates, maybe not)
    3. Flash the firmware manually
    4. Calm down and keep waiting, it will come sooner or later. Your phone is working well on kitkat.

  • josesl16

    Sounds nice, but does all the cellular bands of D5833 work with the ported version? And will you lose OTA updates if you flash?

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Haha I know that hardware is totally different but I’m having a very strong feeling about that XZ will receive the update. Idk why. Cause it’s capable of receiving it.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Very true I’m hoping too brother.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Yea I know but let’s be optimistic

  • apolloa

    I would rather have the Sony build quality and waterproofing, and also the Z3 tablet slim size, the Nexus 7 doesn’t cut it anymore.
    I don’t have a Nexus phone.
    Can’t be bothered to flash the firmware manually as it will potentially void the warranty will it not?

    My tablet is working well, but I would appreciate the ability to move my apps to my memory cars!

  • qehehjjabbdnn

    hope z4 gpe

  • Qays Muhammad

    UK based updates for unlocked devices are only released after all carriers have approved and released their firmware. This usually takes about a month or so after Sony officially roll out a firmware for it to become available in the UK. Nothing Sony can do as this happens for all devices receiving OTA updates in the UK.

  • brick

    You will not void the warranty by doing an unofficial flash, but make sure you follow the instructions to the letter or you risk having an unstable or soft-bricked phone (fixable with a pc companion repair). Also make a backup in case something goes wrong.

  • apolloa

    That doesn’t affect me as I have a Sony Z3 tablet compact that has no cellular radio, so it has no links to any carriers. So it is purely up to Sony when I get my update, unfortunately.

  • [S]unjay

    Actually, Sony does the update.

  • Xperia Z4 wireless charging capabilities:

  • It is 5.0.2. D5833&d6603 already getting

  • Raj Singh

    Cool. I think Sony Mobile said the Ultra is getting 5.0.2 next week… looking forward to that.

  • onosmajente

    I have two Xperias. Phone Xperia V and Xperia Z ultra. But the Z ultra is still 4.2.2 not even 4.3 like the Xperia V. The. Model number is C6833 please can I get upgrade here in Nigeria for the Z ultra?

  • Yes, you can, using third-party software on PC (not PC companion).

  • Muzaffer Bayraktar

    I wonder if I can flash this on z1. Both z1 and ultra are almost same devices except display size and minus flash on ultra. I might try something stupid. I don’t really care if it bricks the phone. My z1 is not used to be.

  • mukul verma

    i think you had flashed a internal version or leaked version of z ultra at that time, thats why you didnt get update. i had checked on xperifrim, only internal & belgium version are on 4.2.2, all other region are above this.& now u have to download a latest version of z ultra through xperifrim & need to flashed it.

  • Brian De Guzman

    What is the best way to update my device? I know updating OTA/PC companion can bring some bugs and a fresh install (where all your old data gets deleted) are more stable and bug free, any suggestions?

  • Andre Lemard

    Update it normally (OTA or PC Companion whichever you prefer). If there is bugs that are major and interfere with you using the device properly do a factory reset. Just make sure you backup all your data before you update (just in case).

  • onosmajente

    So what should I do and how do I do it now

  • mukul verma

    which version is your phone?is it c6802 or c6833? now download unlocked version of latest version of software according to your phone version.
    my take wait for lollipop to come up, its next week, & then download c6802 or c6833 version, according to your phone.

  • These are preliminary regional settings.
    For example, for Russia
    there is also a pop-up notification that mobile data is turned on or off
    (with a warning about a possible waste of money).
    What function is this – “one hands use”?
