xperia z android lollipoThe original Sony Xperia Z was announced back at CES 2013 and at that time was probably one of the better-looking smartphones around. Now given that the handset is 2 years old and with many of its successors having been announced, is there still love for the original Sony Xperia Z? As it turns out there is.

Sony has recently shared a teaser on its Sony Xperia Google+ page in which a photo of the original Xperia Z was posted followed by the tagline of, “Coming soon…” The text in the post also more or less gave it away by saying that despite the handset being two years old, it looks like Sony will not be neglecting the handset and will be giving it its dose of Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Unfortunately Sony did not state when we might be able to expect the update to arrive on the handset but it is probably a pleasant surprise for many Sony Xperia Z owners. Prior to this, Sony had announced that they would be rolling out the Android 5.0 update to the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, and the Xperia Z2 just to name a few. In fact Sony also include some non-Xperia Z devices such as the Xperia T2 Ultra and the Xperia C3.

In any case we’ll be keeping an eye out for more information regarding the release of the update, but in the meantime are there any Sony Xperia Z owners out there who are pleased by this piece of news?
