Xperia Z on Lollipop: First purported screenshot leaks

by XB on 3rd May 2015

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL

Xperia Z Lollipop leakThe screenshot you see below is claimed to be the first showing Android 5.0.2 Lollipop on the original Xperia Z (C6603). It shows that the handset is running on the 3.4 kernel and with a build number starting with 10.6.A.0. This would fit given the currently released firmware with build 10.5.1.A.0.292 i.e. the move from 10.5 to 10.6. Obviously the screenshot could be a fake, but hopefully it indicates the Lollipop update for older Xperia Z series is just around the corner.

Thanks Pranay!

    WHAT!? No Lollipop for my prehistoric SP? JK :P

  • japolis

    em.. nice i guess..

  • Clarence Alvarado

    This could be fake. All Xperia Lollipop updates show the “Processor info” on the About Device.

  • Qays Muhammad

    Xperia Z does not display processor spec. This could be legit.

  • bilomar


  • Svnjay

    Hopefully it get released soon.

  • Nawi

    It’s original =) . According to XDA sources Xperia Z Lollipop is going to be released this end of week

  • Dean Rizki

    When update lollipop for xperia Z?

  • xperiaDROID

    Old device is old device, you expect them to add “Processor info: APQ8064”? Plus, this Snapdragon S4 Pro is an old obsolete chipset, I guess no one has any interest on this chipset anymore.

    Sure, adding the processor info would be nice, but for an old device, you can’t complain too much. What I hope they would add is…
    1. PS4 sound on boot animation like on newer Xperia devices
    2. Ultra Stamina Mode
    3. “Close All” hamburger style on recent apps.
    More importantly, bug-free update.

  • xperiaDROID

    I think Z will follow the Z3 style. Roll out the update first then certify it later on.

  • Clarence Alvarado

    My Z1 doesn’t show Processor Info, not until the lollipop update. Judging this fake may sound too off but I am also looking forward on having this update to our Z series brothers.

  • Clarence Alvarado

    I think I saw it shows “Qualcomm S4 Pro” instead of the model number APQ8064. But still, check my reply above.

  • Santiago Ospina Areiza

    I hopse so but… Where did you read this?

  • Kacho_ON

    I love the confused home button.

  • Piyush Pratheep

    Could be a fake…. This can be made by editing the build.prop and installing Niaboc’s material theme …

  • Shrikrushna Wagh

    Kick Sony’s A##,

    I am also fan of sony but sony putting my mind on test

    When the update will release???

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I have ultra stamina mode on existenz ultra rom on my xperia z xD

  • HAWX

    Yeah but iPhone 5 is not old device yet. It’s not rubish like Z which wont get updates anymore. But Apple stands about 3 years on their old devices. And now iPhone 5 is really good midranger at the moment. Aple does not make spesific midrangers. They make phones which will be automatically a good midranger in the future. You have an option to use or sell it. But in Android your phone is rubish after (max.) 2 years. Lovely.
    Stop saying Z is old shit. It has better specs then some android midrangers today. Sony could support it like Apple.
    Hope there will be more updates after this one OR this one has not any bugs or stuttering.

  • Amirul Syafiq

    Gimme dem lollipop

  • Paul Muad’Dib

    Yay, another release monday without the update.

  • I’ve had the Z and the colours were losing saturation.

  • xyrotic

    Its same with nexus 4

  • Paul Muad’Dib

    Indeed, this is clearly a fake picture. I own a ZL and from such a view angle there is a saturation loss. I’ll never see such an intense blue from this angle.

    It Great To Hear It Will Release It This End Of The Week. We’ve Been Waiting Passionately For Quite Long Time Already…-_-

  • Paul Muad’Dib

    Indeed, is obsolete but is much powerful than the chipset used on T2 Ultra (my 2-nd Sony phone) and C3. It’s damn powerful for a phone released in the beginning of 2013. I don’t need a more powerful chipset but I’d like a better battery life. That’s all. I’m curious how well/bad will behavior Lollipop on S4 Pro (I think Sony is the only OEM that offers official updates for this type of CPU).

  • Paul Muad’Dib

    Does it works as it should?

  • sourabh

    fuck your next few weeks. you have been telling this since last year. your devs are retarted

  • mail

    great SONY great,,,even the htc m8 mini and m7 mini are not getting the update…truly u r doing a great thing…i didnt expect my zl 6502 would be updated to lollipop,,since its more than 2 years old,,, my next upgrade will however be z4 or lg g4…. my girlfriends g2 if so super fast ,,i love lg g2 as well,,,, and more customization like double tap, knock code,… but i really think sony’s ui is little laggy…even i felt it in my friend’s z2.. anyway i love sony for giving me “the beautifully crafted xperia zl”

  • Suraj Patel

    when will my xperia zr get lollipop update??

  • tony

    Sony is good! Z is such an old model and they are still giving it Lollipop love. I have a Samsung Note 2 that is not getting Lollipop. Back then I was deciding between buying the Z and Note 2 and bought the Note 2 for its features which I hardly used. Regret buying Samsung. Sony will be my next phone.

  • tony

    My Samsung Note 2 the flagship during that time is not getting Lollipop either so what are you complaining about?

  • Vabh

    Im in India, when can i have a update for C6602 model?
