Xperia Z series to get Android 5.1 Lollipop update soon - Telstra support said

As usual global variants receive updates faster than carrier handsets so we might see Android 5.1 Lollipop rolling on Xperia “Z” series earlier than August.

As when Sony Mobile is done updating its whole Xperia “Z” series on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, we can expect some official statement from their side on Android 5.1 Lollipop roll out.

Besides all rumors have started floating about Android “M” coming soon also.

We will keep you updated once we get any official confirmation on Android 5.1 Lollipop roll out from Sony.
