Xperia Z Lollipop update could start to roll “by next week”

by XB on 4th May 2015

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL

Xperia LollipopSony Philippines has given the first indicative date of when we can expect to see the Android Lollipop update to hit the Xperia Z. In a tweet sent earlier today, Sony Philippines said that the Xperia Z Lollipop update “will start rolling out by next week”.

This was further recently corroborated by XDA user gbil, who has a strong track record when it comes to future Xperia firmware updates. gbil says that the “actual release date is closer to end of NEXT week” (i.e. he is referring to the end of this week). Either way, when it does launch we’ll give you a heads-up on the blog.

Thanks Ankit and Pester!

    i feel like they delay it one week every other week

  • Kristo

    Week one: 3 weeks left
    Week three: 2 weeks left
    Week five: 1 week left

  • illstplaya .

    And yet the lollipop update still hasn’t been released in the U.S on the z3, z1s or Z

  • Kristo

    Try using the Sony PC Companion It’s the first place to get the update!

  • Abdullah Robben

    I think both Z and ZL wil get it at the same time

  • lovebmw

    T mobile said for the z3 it will take months, and that was said last week

  • Fuad Nazal

    If T-Mobile has a standart model device, you might want flash a generic Lollipop firmware via Flashtool, in order to get Lollipop in less time.

  • Fahim geyas

    At least we got some date for rolling out of update for Xperia z c6603..

  • Geese Howard

    Anybody who watches Saint Seiya or know the terms… I can feel my Z’s Cosmo burning! It will reach the 7th Sense once it get its Lollipop! So hurry Sony!

  • Kleyton Hunter

    this week will last lot

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    Who cares about them? They only buy Iphones and Shutsung… :)

  • Luis

    Only if those are tmobile phones. The unlocked ones already have it. z Ultra in US already has lollipop. You can blame tmobile for that extra delay because they have to make sure there stuff will work.

    Dear Xperiablog,
    Don’t you guys think that it’s time for an app? I actually don’t like using pushbullet and chrome…I think it may increase your ad income..

  • lovebmw

    We tried, nothing works on 6616, other than a 6616 lollipop, all other versions of lollipop only work on the other models.

    You can’t put a 6603 lollipop on a 6616 . I tried.

  • Sdamaceno

    It’s true. Until then I’m using XB feed in Socialife app

  • Kiwison

    I hate do you like it?

  • Sdamaceno

    I don’t like it. I just use it. It is better than Xb mobile version.

  • Adhi Suryana

    Haha, marketing thing
    Well at least I will get Lolipop for my Xperia Z, I’m not sure other manufacture still updating their 2 years flagship, and… another flagship (Z, ZR, ZL)
    Really glad of that XD

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I think this phone should get almost all the upsets of lollipop, including 5.1.1 and 5.1.2.
    It deserves to be updated, if nexus 4 can, this phone can get the updates.

  • Andrés S.

    give a date for xperia ZR, come on sony! >:(

  • illstplaya .

    It’s not t-mobile. It’s sony. According to T-mobile’s website, Sony still hasn’t finished the update.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    probably the first week of June

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    nexus 4 is managed by Google, inc. xperia Z is managed by Sony mobile Limited. If you compare the financial capabilities of these two corporations, you will know how reality works.

  • Robin

    The update will release at the same time for all older z series.that’s mean we can get the lollipop update next week as sony mentioned the date in twitter

  • Eduardo Otero

    T-Mobile is lying. The blame is for T-Mobile. If they do not change anything on Sony’s software you would already have Lollipop as the unlocked ones. And that’s why unlocked phones get updates before: there are no operators changing Sony’s software

  • Eduardo Otero

    As T-Mobile as their own model, International software won’t work right

  • Eduardo Otero

    It makes no sense till the update be released

  • Eduardo Otero

    Same that Z because they have the same software

  • Eduardo Otero

    It will be the same for Z, ZL and ZR.

  • Eduardo Otero

    The greatest and smartest point!!!!

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Have you heard something called survival of the fittest? If Sony wants to survive this game they should update that device nevertheless thinking about the budget, I don’t think it’ll cost them that much compared to making new devices 6 monthly which they stopped and they clearly mentioned that they’re gonna focus on software instead of making number of devices which is a good move, but I think they should update Z to current versions of lollipop as a resemble of showing the customers that they’re not the same company and they’re not like HTC nor Samsung. Cause they’re SONY, and they should be the best.

  • illstplaya .

    You sure about that? The z3v on verizon doesn’t have the update either. Both carriers have released lollipop for other phones. This makes me think it’s sony who is at fault.

  • Eduardo Otero

    Yes, I’m sure about that when I had my Xperia Pro my operator never released ICS while in the most of the world it was released. Now on My Z3 Compact I see on XperiFirm how all the unlocked Xperia have gotten Lollipop and the ones that rely on an operator haven’t. Besides tell then why all the unlocked Xperias on US have already gotten Lollipop?
    By the way you can take a read on Vodafone AU blog where explain why a phone from an operator take more time to get an update.
    And have you ever ask why unlocked phones always got first updates?

  • P9

    I use gg newstand sometimes, but most of the time still Chrome and select from my home bookmark. xD
    yes, app is an awesome idea. xD
    hope Xperia and XB stay forever toooooo

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    the thing is, it’s completely different concepts that a particular phone can handle the update, which is dependent on the hardware; and that a particular phone is granted update by its marketer, which is dependent on the devotion of the company and its financial status. Although as a Sony advocate who post on this discussion I am definitely in support of Sony latest movements of reducing the number of new devices and extending support for the older ones, one cannot be blind to the real situation, which is Sony is not doing very well financially
