New update (23.1.A.1.28) certified for Xperia Z3 series

by XB on 28th April 2015

in Firmware, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z3 series

Xperia Z3_23.1.A.1.28Yesterday, we saw build number 23.1.A.1.28 certified by the PTCRB for the Xperia Z2 series. Today the same build number has been certified for the Xperia Z3 series including the Xperia Z3 (D6603, D6653), Xperia Z3 Compact (D5803, D5833) and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (SGP621, SGP641). As previously mentioned, given that the firmware format has moved from 23.1.A.0 to 23.1.A.1 should signify a reasonable update, although whether this is Android 5.1 or not we’ll have to wait and see.

Thanks Krzysztof and MikePL!

    Hope they fix system equalizer. Even clear audio+ doesn’t work.

  • so where

    God bless sony. I hope they get their shit together. I hope they concentrate on everywhere outside of the US for phone sales because i think thats where they can find success. One of my first smartphones was the Sony Ericsson X10. I owned it for 5 years and even had to use it after once i broke a phone. However as of today as a z3 owner on tmobile im officially done entertaining them. With Sony’s current plans and path i cant be a customer anymore.

  • Ritwij

    So Sony loves Z2 more than Z3? Whoa!

  • What about SGP611 ?

  • Please reply .

  • Lucian

    Please Sony give us manual camera.:) I love my Z3C with Lollipop, manual camera would be just awesome addition

  • Svnjay

    We need RAW support!

  • Jardany Estrada Nuñez

    We are still waiting for first certified lollipop for xperia ZL…
    What a shit!!
    Fuck ya Sony..

  • DanielGearSolid

    The volume in general seems too low imo

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    this is a well-known secret

  • Svnjay

    You should be grateful that such an old device is getting updated.

  • DavidBaik(????????)

    Is it fixed Low sound problem? When i get a phone, listening volume too low..

  • Azar

    START your Z roll out AND THEN do whatever you want, SONY! Providing multiple versions for Z3 and others meanwhile Z hasn’t even got certified yet and they’re saying in the coming weeks. It’s already been months !

  • Azar

    So is the S4, couple of MONTHS ago

  • Svnjay

    Sony is updating 20 devices to Lollipop…that’s more than Samsung, HTC and LG combined.

  • bilomar

    That’s really annoying. They took so much time to release lollipop and they did not notice that the audio is much lower?

  • hansip

    Want* fixed it for you.

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Also certified for D6502, means it’s global update

  • Kevin

    The most probable thing is they already released it but your carrier hasn’t because I’m from Mexico and I got Lollipop on my Z1 already.

  • Vasilis K.

    A new update every week! WTF? What kind of tested Lollipop version was the initial update? It looks like Z3 users are the beta testers of Sony! :P

  • Timel

    Stop trying to defend Sony, you sick!

    No one force your Sony to release 2-4 high end phones per year, this is Sony’s responsibility if Sony wanna keep their image and old customers.

    They better roll it out. Last update is horrible. Battery life is ridiculous and buggy sound enhancements.

  • Eduardo Otero

    There is logic, March = Z3, Z3 Compact and Z2 April, Z1, Z1 Compact and Z Ultra, May Z, ZL and ZR

    What about Z3 DUAL D6633 ???

    till now no close all button ??

  • Natxo Baraja

    SGP611 is Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact WiFi-only 16 GB.

    On the PTCRB website only models that include a mobile radio (GSM/UMTS/LTE) are shown.

    SGP611 and SGP612 are the WiFi-only models of the Z3 Tablet Compact, so they are not shown on the PTCRB web.

    But they are updated with the same firmware versions as their mobile radio siblings.

  • Thank you

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Stop whining for everything then. U have a problem with SOny get the fuck off this site and get ur shitty Samsung s4.

  • Nazareno Pisani

    They will upgrade a 2 years old smartphone … Azar, be patient! :D

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Just stop complain, it will come relax! I’m getting really tired of people whining about lollipop for Xperia z…. Sent from a Xperia z user

  • killuha

    search function is bugged also, it does not find a large amount of keywords wich workde under kitkat.

  • raju


  • There’s also 23.2.A.0.278 for the Z3 Compact on Deutsche Telekom which is still 5.0.2.

  • fried_egg

    I see from twitter some Z1’s have been getting a version of 5.x including EE/Tmoblie ones… BUT twitter is also full of complaints of battery life or sms errors… How about a pole on have you had it / is it stable / do you prefer 4.4.4 ? My EE Z1 still says 4.4.4 is the latest software…..

  • Certification dates are just that, certification dates. The firmware might as well be newer. And the fact that it has the minor version incremented would normally mean it’s got additional features or whatever. See also: OS release cycles.

  • Confruggy

    Do you really believe this shit?

  • ?âxmân Yådáv

    What about xperia z????? I’m waiting.. …..

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    Customized HK 23.2.A.1.62

  • Eduardo Otero

    Are you such a stupid??
    There is no D6553 in Latin America, the latin model is D6503, you surely bought a unlocked Xperia you have to look where is it from.
    So when Lollipop be released on that country/region you will get it.
    Or just use Flashtool and put the Latinoamerican software that is already Lollipop.

  • Eduardo Otero

    They didn’t. Z and ZL were released on 2012. Z1s and Z1 Compact were released on 2014.
    So please check your info before you write all this stuoid stuff.

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    “Clear-All” button UI has been polished to match up with the lollipop UI in 23.2.A.1.62.

  • Nawi

    Is a troll. Ignore and report.
    Always ignore and report

  • Eduardo Otero

    He does not even deserve being reported. He should know that he only makes Sony even bigger, just like bendgate pushed by Samsung pushed more sellings for iPhone.

  • André Faria
  • Jardany Estrada Nuñez

    Z anda ZL are from 2013 bro ;)

  • Azar

    It will come after we die. Sony thinks our lives are endless, we are immortal.

  • Azar

    I’ve had enough patience already..

  • Azar

    Count how many Samsung is doing.. yeah, you can’t, it’s too much. But I do agree that Sony is better in upgrades.

  • Timel

    Z and ZL were released in 2012? Really? Hahahahahaha

    Sony fanboy like you are nothing except talking bullshit!

    Please check your brain Ops! But how can you check the brain, you never ever have it Hahahaha

  • Timel

    You can’t admit the truth right? I’m so pity you Uncle Nawi

    Report my comments? C’mon old man that’s only hide my comments, people still can click to open and read my comments anyway ^^

  • Timel

    Wow I’m so glad, my pleasure ^^

  • Eduardo Otero

    The Samsung fanboy talking about who talk bullshit. So funny bro. I ask Samsung never stop paying you for spamming this blog. It’s so funny reading your stupid stuff. By the way I remember you that Z1s and Z1 Compact actually were released on 2014. Somebody else has to check what he’s supposed to have as brain.

  • Svnjay

    Samsung released a list of devices that will be updated but they shortened the list because the S4 Mini and possibly the S5 Mini don’t have 2GB of ram.

  • Svnjay

    It’s now beautiful.

  • Nawi

    Always ignore and report

  • Timel

    Why this scree looks so mess
    Search bar and small app bar are so annoying

  • brick

    Spoken like a true whiny pessimistic emo bitch. Good job dude.
