Yesterday Google announced the new Motorola Nexus 6, HTC Nexus 9 and the ASUS Nexus Player devices. They also confirmed that Android L is Android Lollipop and is Android 5.0. We know the Nexus line dating back to the Nexus 4 will get an Android 5.0 update at some point. We also know a number a Motorola devices will also be picking up the sweet new treat. Now we hear from Sony what their plans for the new OS will be.

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z3

According to a blog post on the Sony site this morning, Sony plans to bring Android 5.0 to the entire premium Xperia Z line. That includes the following:

  • Xperia Z
  • Xperia ZL
  • Xperia ZR
  • Xperia Tablet Z
  • Xperia Z1
  • Xperia Z1s (T-Mobile)
  • Xperia Z Ultra
  • Xperia Z1 Compact
  • Xperia Z2
  • Xperia Z2 Tablet
  • Xperia Z3
  • Xperia Z3v
  • Xperia Z3 Compact
  • Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

The Xperia Z Ultra Google Play Edition will the first device to see the update.  From there they will work toward the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 series beginning in 2015.

Timing and availability of those updates will be announced by Sony as they become available and will trickle through specific regions and carriers too. I do have a distinct feeling though that the Xperia Z3 here in the sates will be a pretty hard push for Sony. I certainly hope the carriers play nice and make it happen quickly and without issue. It would boost the carrier images as well as get Sony rolling in the right direction stateside.
