Sony to begin rollout of Android 5.0 Lollipop to Xperia Z3 range next month

Android 5.0 sure is taking its sweet time in rolling out. One month ago - around six weeks after its official launch - the Lollipop update had only reached 0.1% of devices, and even now, many manufacturers have still not announced details of their planned rollouts. Sony confirmed in October that several of its devices would get the update, but not until "the beginning of 2015".

Sony announced at its CES 2015 press conference yesterday that it will start rolling out Android 5.0 to its Xperia Z3 range next month, as Android Central reports. The company said in October that its "core Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 series" would get Lollipop first, along with the Xperia Z Ultra Google Play Edition, with other Z devices following later.

The exact schedule for the rollout hasn't yet been detailed, so it's still unclear exactly when in February it will begin. But by the time the update arrives, it will have been at least four and a half months since Google's Android 5.0 launch.

Samsung, meanwhile, began its Lollipop rollout a few weeks ago, although it too is progressing at a glacial pace, reaching just one handset - the Galaxy S5 - in three markets, so far, although it is said to be expanding to more handsets and more markets soon, including the US.
