Google has officially unveiled the next edition of Android OS i.e. Android 5.0 Lollipop along with Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player. Images of Android 5.0 Lollipop will be released by Google on 17 October and then we can expect manufacturers to build Android 5.0 Lollipop update for their device. Motorola and HTC have already come up with their plans of rollout for next android update, so what’s next for Sony Xperia devices ?
Android 5.0 Lollipop update brings material design UI to the devices, improved notification system, long lasting battery improvements, more regulated security update, newer quick settings layout, more powerful connectivity options with low energy Bluetooth Capabilities, ART runtime and many other new features, check out the full list here.
Xperia phones getting Android 5.0 Lollipop
Android 5.0 Lollipop factory images will be available from day after tomorrow so the real pain for various companies will start for building new update. Sony recently launched Xperia Z3 lineup with KitKat update and now whole Xperia “Z” series is on Android 4.4.4 KitKat ( except Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet for which it has been certified already ).
It seems the right time now for Sony to unveil its plan for Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Xperia devices. So which Xperia devices will get Android 5.0 Lollipop update ? Let’s see.
Note : We are just speculating the devices list, don’t take it as official wording.
Android 5.0 Lollipop update getting Xperia Devices : Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet will definitely get it. Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet are also in list. Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact and Xperia Z Ultra follows the list.
Most probably Sony will also update Xperia T2 Ultra / Dual and Xperia T3 to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
We are not sure whether Xperia M2, E3, C3, E1 will get or not. ( They should get an update. Sony will release an update or not, Sony will tell it in future once they are done updating Xperia “Z” series ).
Sony has already ended support for Xperia S, SL, T, V, TX, SP, C, L, M, E, so there is no chance for any further android update.
