Sony Announces Android 5.1 Update For the Xperia Line

Sony published a list of devices that will get an update to Android 5.1 Lollipop. Users of phones and tablets that got the official Android 5.0 already should not be worried as Lollipop will be bumped on those devices in July. The list contains no less than twenty devices that should get the OTA notification before August.

Here’s a list of supported models:

  • Xperia Z4
  • Xperia Z4 Tablet
  • Xperia Z3+
  • Xperia Z3+ Dual
  • Xperia Z3 (Z3 Dual)
  • Xperia Z3 Compact
  • Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet
  • Xperia Z2
  • Xperia Z2 Tablet
  • Xperia Z1
  • Xperia Z1 Compact
  • Xperia Z Ultra
  • Xperia Z
  • Xperia ZL
  • Xperia ZR
  • Xperia Tablet Z
  • Xperia T2 Ultra (T2 Ultra Dual)
  • Xperia C3 (Xperia C3 Dual)
  • Xperia M2
  • Xperia M2 Dual
  • Xperia M2 Aqua

Xperia M4 Aqua, Xperia E4 and Xperia C4 are believed to get the Android 5.1 Lollipop too, but this should take place in August. The bad news is that phones like Xperia T3 and Xperia E3 will likely remain at Android 4.4 KitKat. There is no confirmation about update availability either at the Sony Blog or official product pages. Luckily enough there are some custom ROMs that can easily become daily drivers even without Sony’s blessing. Just unlock the bootloader, dive into your device forum and find something that fills the bill.
