Android Lollipop arrives on Sony Xperia Z series


If you own any of the Sony Xperia Z series, either the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, or the Xperia Tablet Z and you have been long awaited for the Lollipo update, wait no more as Sony has activated and begun seeding the Android Lollipop updates for the Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZR. The new firmwares are currently available only over the air, but we expect those to pop up soon at Sony PC Companion as well.

Android-5-lollipop-mytechportal.comThe updates are about 700MB big and sweeten the Xperia Z and ZR with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS among other improvements such as:

  • Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
  • Google Material design across the UI and compatible apps
  • Intelligent lock screen notifications and customizable settings
  • Support for multi-user profiles and guest mode
  • Move apps to SD card option

In order to install the update you’ll need at least 1.2GB of free space (though recommend is 2GB before the OTA download), and you may want to back up some important data in case of failure.

Various user reports suggest the update is now live in Bolivia, Bangladesh, Taiwan, Hong Kong, among others. We guess more markets will be joining those very soon.

Mytechportal.com further gathered that other Sony Xperia Z family like the Xperia ZL and Xperia Tablet Z should start getting their updates in few weeks to come.
