Verizon has confirmed on its support pages that both the Sony Xperia Z3v and Xperia Z2 Tablet will shortly be receiving the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware update. Whilst the Xperia Z2 Tablet is currently running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, the Xperia Z3v is still on Android 4.4.4 KitKat – although, the handset did update to Android 5.0.2 unofficially through leaked firmware.
The new update will move the Xperia Z3v from build number 23.0.E.1.44 to version 23.4.B.0.319, with the Xperia Z2 Tablet moving to the same build number from version 23.1.D.0.508. Whilst Verizon’s support pages have been updated to confirm the new firmware, the update has not started to roll. We will follow up, once it has been released.
