Sony starts rolling out Android 5.1 Lollipop for Xperia Z3 and Z2 series of devices


Sony today announced that it has started rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for its Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 series of devices.

Android 5.1 does not bring any major changes to the table, but it does bring with it under the hood performance improvements and bug fixes. Some of the new features included by Sony in this update are as follows:

  • Increased customisation options – so you have even more control over the way volume, silent modes and your alerts function

  • Brand new LinkedIn integration – be more productive with intuitive contact synchronisation in your Calendar

  • Camera improvements – with faster, more accurate Superior Auto Mode focus for great images, regardless of conditions

  • Enhanced enterprise support – with our latest Xperia in Business features for work

  • SmartWear integration – selfie snapping made that bit easier, with SmartWatch 3 as a remote shutter button

For now, Sony is rolling out the Android 5.1 update for the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Xperia Z2 and the Xperia Z2 Tablet. Once the rollout of the software update is complete for these devices, it will start rolling out the update for the Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact and Z Ultra, which should start sometime in the “coming weeks.”
