People the world over are waiting for Android 5.0 Lollipop to land on their devices, and we’re here to keep you up to date with each and every one of them. Sony has already confirmed that the Xperia Z3 will get the update at the ”beginning” of 2015. We now know that February is that beginning. See below for more details on the Sony Xperia Z3 Android 5.0 Lollipop update.
The latest news on the Lollipop update for the Z3 is that Vodafone Australia is about to start testing of their firmware, meaning that it should only be a few more weeks until the final OTA rollout begins. This also bodes well for other Z3 owners globally.
You may recall that back in December the official Sony Xperia twitter channel tweeted to say that the “core” Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 series would be receiving the Android Lollipop update at the “beginning of 2015”. It turns out that the beginning of 2015 for Sony’s flagship is in February, as Sony Electronics COO Michael Fasulo took to the stage at CES recently to reveal that this is when Lollipop will land on the Xperia Z3.

We still don’t know when the other devices in the range will be receiving the update, or whether this the upgrade will be to Android 5.0 or Android 5.0.1. If it’s arriving to the main Sony flagship in February, however, the others will certainly follow soon after. With Vodafone in Australia already testing, things seem to be right on track.
If you simply can’t wait for the official release of Android 5.0 on the Xperia Z3, head over to the XDA Developers forum and get up to speed with what the folks over there are working on. Otherwise, Sony has stated that you will be waiting until the beginning of 2015 for the OTA Lollipop update on the Xperia Z3 and Z2 range.
Are you going to download the early Lollipop build for the Xperia Z3? Or wait for the official OTA Android Lollipop update?
