If you have a smartphone or tablet from the Sony Xperia Z family, you’re guaranteed an Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade no matter how old your device. Sony has vowed to upgrade all Xperia Z devices — including the original Xperia Z, the Xperia ZL, the Xperia ZR, and of course, the new Xperia Z3.


Sony is finally rolling out its long-awaited Android 4.4 KitKat update to its first Z Series devices, including the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, and the Xperia Tablet Z. In addition to performance improvements and user interface optimizations, the update overhauls Sony’s entire built-in app portfolio and adds new features, including Xperia Themes.


Today, Sony began pushing out the much-anticipated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean over-the-air update to all its unlocked Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z devices currently located in the United States. In addition to the upgraded build of the open-source operating system, this update also brings a newer version of Sony’s Xperia user interface, plus a multitude of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations, together with the Japanese company’s newly released “Social Camera” app.


Sony promised its Xperia ZL users that they would be getting an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update this month, and judging by these leaked screenshots, it could be right around the corner. One users already has their hands on the new release, which brings some user interface improvements, an updated kernel, and more.
