Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact Android Lollipop upgrade now rolling out in select markets


As promised way back in October 2014, Sony is now starting to roll out an upgrade to Android Lollipop for users of its existing Z3 and Z3 Compact devices.

Announced today in a blog post, it says that other Z Series products will start to get the upgrade in about two weeks. For now, it’s only Z3 and Z3 Compact devices for users in Nordic and Baltic countries, but a wider European release is expected shortly after.


While the update will usher in the flatter new look and feel ushered in by Google’s changes to Android, there are also a few manufacturer-specific tweaks, like a custom lock screen and notifications, plus a slightly more minimalist design overall, Sony says.
