    Sony has begun seeding the Android Lollipop updates for the Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZR. The new firmwares are currently available only over the air, but we expect those to pop up soon at Sony PC Companion as well.


    The updates are about 700MB big and sweeten the Xperia Z and ZR with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS among other improvements such as:

    • Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
    • Google Material design across the UI and compatible apps
    • Intelligent lock screen notifications and customizable settings
    • Support for multi-user profiles and guest mode
    • Move apps to SD card option
    In order to install the update you'll need at least 1.2GB of free space (we'd recommend 2GB before the OTA download), and you may want to back up some important data in case of failure.

    Various user reports suggest the update is now live in Bolivia, Bangladesh, Taiwan, Hong Kong, among others. We guess more markets will be joining those very soon.

    Now that Android Lollipop is rolling out on the Xperia Z and Xperia ZR, the Xperia ZL and Xperia Tablet Z upgrades should be just around the corner as well.
