Sony Xperia Z Lineup Finally Gets Android Lollipop

By 07:57 Sun, 25 Jul 2021 Comments

Sony has begun seeding the Android Lollipop updates for the Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZR. The recent firmwares are currently available only over the air, but we expect those to pop up soon at Sony Personal Computer (PC) Companion as well.

The updates are about 700Mega Bytes (MB) gigantic and sweeten the Xperia Z and ZR with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop Operating System (OS) among other improvements such as:

  • Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
  • Google Material design across the UI and compatible apps
  • Intelligent lock classy 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 (we'd recommdiscontinue 2GB before the OTA download), and you may want to back up some vital data in case of failure.

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

Now that Android Lollipop is rolling out on the Xperia Z and Xperia ZR, the Xperia ZL and Xperia Tablet Z upgrades should be just around the corner as well.
