Sony has been slow getting Android 5.0 Lollipop to its devices, but the company has announced the update for the Xperia Z3 and Zperia Z2 range recently. The Japanese giant also revealed that the Xperia C3 and Xperia T2 Ultra are also in line for the upgrade, but what about the older Xperia Z? At two years old, the former flagship is aging for sure, but Sony confirmed today that the device will indeed be getting a lick of the Lollipop in the near future.

The Xperia Z was the handset that started Sony's recent flagship range, while it was also the first from the company to come with the now familiar waterproofing. It is fitting then that the Z will get the new variant of Android 5.0 Lollipop, which will actually make it a compelling device for those who can still pick it up. It boasts mid-range specs these days, but it is also up to date in terms of software.

Oddly Sony has yet to confirm Android 5.0 for the Xperia Z1, a smartphone that landed six months after the original Xperia Z. Surely the company will make an announcement soon, or will just update the newer device when the original Z gets its upgrade.
