It may seem silly, but thinking about it logically, Android 4.4 KitKat launched in November 2013 and six months later at its I/O event Google announced Lollipop.

Sony has always had a considerable presence at CES, the yearly Las Vegas based trade show that in 2015 will be taking place between January 6 and January 9. However, CES is more of a consumer electronics show and smartphones have not featured in Sony's launches in the past, at least not flagships.
