imageSony Mobile has confirmed that the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update will commence rollout for the Xperia C3 and Xperia T2 Ultra next week (w/c 20 April 2015). This will include the update for dual SIM versions of both handsets.

Owners of the original Xperia Z series (including the Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z), will see Lollipop “in few weeks” according to Sony. We’ll keep you posted once it starts to roll out.

  • It’s amazing Sony is updating devices like the C3 and T2 to Lollipop !! Great job :)

  • Stanley Lu

    Wow seriously… Still not a single rollout for XX53 devices…..

  • Robert Llobrera Jr.

    This is just the beginning. Nice to see Sony working updates for midrange phones as well! :)

  • William Wijaya

    Great, T2 ultra got more update.
    just hope we’ll see the 5.1 too :D

    or too much hope ofr it :D

  • Sarfaraz Habib

    It’s a good news but missing the Xperia E3 lollipop.

  • Great! Any plans for the M2 Aqua? I’d like to give my Mom’s phone a bit of a performance kick.

  • nick

    Bcz those bi#### forgot it is flagship released in Asia and they dont have any plans to do further business there…

  • John Jay

    yes! just now D6633 (Z3 Dual) lollipop for Hong Kong is now up and seeded.

  • xperiaDROID

    I still can’t really accept that the mid range will be receiving Lollipop earlier than the older “flagships”. But oh well, better than nothing. Let’s wait.

    Hope the update for Z will be stable and bug free, and also, boot anination with PS4 sound.

  • Vinicius Araujo

    Guys, guys…

    The Lollipop update announcement is not over. I don’t think Sony will be crazy enough to update T2 Ultra and let T3 on KitKat.

    Actually I can’t believe this. That’s why I have some hope regarding other mid-range models. lol

  • Rizqi Angga

    This update is coming via OTA Or PC Companion?

  • Alessandro Romano

    Xperia Z is one of the most supported smartphone, proud owner of it

  • Thank you sony

  • Andre Lemard

    Both. The update is normally available on PC Companion before the OTA version.

  • Seshan Kumar

    Great.I Hope Xperia Z Will get Lollipop before this month.

  • Snorky112

    I don’t see a problem if a “new” midranger gets lollipop before an “old” flasgship

  • Nawi

    Agree 100%
    For example. Where is Lollipop for LG “older flaghship” Opt G? (Same S4 PRO chipset)

    Never a LG for me

  • aziz al-ali

    Xperia Z3 D6633 lollipop update released in middle east

  • May Czos

    Interesting leak. There won’t be Z4 anytime sonn, all the renders and rumors are about Z3 Neo:

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    Me too. I believe that Z will be Sony’s smartphone with longer support now.
    Started with 4.1, then received the updates for 4.2; 4.3; 4.4 and soon 5.0
    My next phone will be Z2

    Before I owned a Xperia Play and felt disappointed because it didn’t got ICS.
    I didn’t stop believing in Sony and bought the Z… Well done Sony.

  • Kleyton Hunter

    my old zl is waiting as my new devices are on lollipop of course

  • Svnjay

    Hopefully the T3 and M2 are next.

  • Svnjay

    I had the Xperia Play too.

    We were all bumbed over the lack of ICS. What sucks is that Sony had a nearly complete beta for the Xperia Play. The beta is still downloadable.

  • Mustafizur Rahman

    What about update for Xperia E3

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    That’s creepy cus I had the xperia play and was also gutted I didn’t get ICS then I got xperia z and was happy now I have xperia z2 and your thinking of getting it that’s kinda weird but I also didnt stop believing in sony

  • rus_media

    Another “Next week” coming “Soon” :P

  • Maxnoob

    Haha!…. ok i will wait ;_;

  • Davis

    Meanwhile my Z3 6603 still hasn’t got the update in the UK region.

    Tempted to flash, still want my warranty.

  • rayd1994

    I have a T2 Ultra D5316. Will I get the update for Lollipop?

  • adnan

    Pls say when will b lollipop

  • Timel

    Xperia Z devices has a very classy design and premium look&feel
    But Sony version of Lollipop is very cheap and Kiddish, the Xperia UI now doesn’t deserve the Xperia hardware at all

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Fake timel or a timel thats dissapointed on galaxy s6? :)

  • nick

    Next week soon maybe!!

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Well i do, the Xperia Z is quite old, better give the newer devices lollipop first and then to us :D

  • rubinaish

    Dude, they released a flagship (!) with 4.1 when 4.2 was already out for quite some time… So that one does not really count. But I agree, I’m surprised too that they go far beyond the usual 18 months cycle.

  • rubinaish

    It won’t void. I did that same stuff to my phone. Then it crashed after using it underwater and Sony replaced it. I guess I was lucky.

  • Abdullah Robben

    Next weeks = one year or more

  • Geese Howard

    Well, looks like my Z has to wait… But won’t be having too much Lollipop fun on Z because will jump to Z4 once it comes out… Time for an upgrade!

  • mountain

    Updating my Z3 dual (HK)

  • bilomar

    Did They forget about UK or what happened to SonY? Lol

  • Svnjay

    You sure about that? The UI is the closest to stock Android.

  • New info: The leaks of Xperia Z4 are…..the leaks of XPERIA Z3 NEO!! Xperia Z4 coming in the autumn!!

  • Abdullah Mohamed

    Z3 Dual Lollipop Update now AVAILABLE Via PC Companion ( ONLY ) !

  • Guest

    Its here on my Z Ultra in Canada, all i did was hit the refresh button and it popped up!

  • HAWX

    Yeah I agree with Timel on this one. Its like hole design team of Sony has changed. Look at the 4.1.2 or 4.2.2 times. Lots pf people says wow after seeing these ones. But now Its not classy at all. I was proud to carry Xperia Z device at that time. But now since Sony released so many of them Software design and quality has dropped and the decies lost their super uniqueness at that time.

  • Davis

    Idk but it’s kinda annoying seeing a z1 and older miles getting lollipop before my Z3. Guess I’ll have to wait another week

  • Makiz

    My Z tablet is screaming for lollipop!!

  • Can’t wait to see lollipop on my Xperia Tablet Z. The oldest tablet in Z series yet still perform well :)

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    Geniuses think the same! lol.

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    Too right

  • dima

    Z3 D6653 didn’t even get it yet while the old flagships are. Dammit, Sony.

  • Jemarhel Supriana

    I had a feeling, those leaks wasn’t Z4…..

  • Jemarhel Supriana

    I hope its really true…….. you have any sources?

  • Joshua Phillis

    makes sense to me, then z4 will be big update and everyone cane stop bitching!

  • Cris de Oliveira


  • Cris de Oliveira

    haha hopefully x)

  • marksapolloa

    Can’t wait to see lollipop on my Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact…….! Still waiting for it…..

  • jep

    few week = 30++ week..heh

  • Blacksparrow15

    Another comment from him. BOO!! HAHAHA

  • laci_csk

    Well done Sony !

  • dino

    it has feature knock to wakeup?

  • lu99ke

    agree Svnjay… I think Sony’s take on Lollipop is excellent… with one exception.. the dialer pad with black numbers and black separating lines… this clashes with the in-call dial pad ( to press 5 to delete voicemail for example ) is stock lollipop – blue with no separating lines.

  • lu99ke

    what he said! where’s the love for 6653??

  • lu99ke

    really? when? what is the FW number?

  • lu99ke

    if you install an official sony ROM, regardless of region, you do not void your warranty. You can install FLASHTOOL and pick a 6603 FW from other Europe countries if you like.. there may be some small loses with radios etc as it may not be optimized for UK networks but it should work. I flashed a 6603 FW on my 6653 in Australia – working flawlessly.

  • lu99ke

    post above rekons 6653 in middle east is out..

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I remember I was mad that Sony wouldn’t give the Xperia arc s jelly bean, but after a while I understood why, the hardware was to bad, so after I realized that I bought the Xperia Z and cannot say that I made the wrong decision :) love my Z!

  • Stanley Lu

    I don’t think so… I believe that’s 6633 you are talking about. Still no 6653

  • Svnjay

    I agree. The black lines should be removed. They’re also not material design.

  • Kabuto Kouji

    “a few weeks”

  • Davis

    Really tempted never done it before, looked it up seems pretty easy,but I don’t wanna mess my phone up.. Somehow il manage to do it

  • Ahmad Choobdari


  • Patrick Jurdana

    Xperia M2….

  • Vitali

    People, it’s not that Sony didn’t give the ICS update for the Xperia Play in purpose, it is because the Xperia Play doesn’t work well with the ICS version with it’s old weak hardware, did you ever try to use the ICS version on 2011 phones?

    I was dissapointed too that my Xperia Neo V didn’t get the ICS update as well, then I tried to install it manually and I realized why Sony didn’t give the update.
    You guys always say that in that way, like Sony did it in a purpose, but they didn’t.

    Well, the Xperia Z has an amazing hardware that may support any android version for my opinion, that’s why the Z gets all the updates and will keep gettting updates, because Sont won’t dissapoint us. :)

  • i’m waiting for the update

  • Gaelex

    Always the older models have to wait for the update, because screw the buyers that gave their money already. It’s more important to get new suckers in.

  • z3firm

  • Andre Osama
