As you must be shocked by the title of this post, let us tell you that there is some new development in the yet to be released Android L 5.0 update for few Sony Xperia Devices that are old enough to retire. AndroidOrigin confirms that they have access to some information regarding the Android L Update for Xperia Z, Xepria ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia Tablet Z, it’s by no means a good one. In a recent article published by AndroidOrigin they have confirmed that the above listed devices won’t be updated to Android L 5.0 and will end their journey at version 4.4.4 instead. This information is revealed by their unnamed source that we haven’t heard of before but they claim that this is the same source that had leaked the full specification of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact which made us look into it.
After one of our readers pointed our attention towards this new development we pushed our sources over at Sony India about some confirmation, they didn’t hand us over their documents or something but they sure did mention that the Android L 5.0 update list is far from being finalized as the version isn’t complete yet and at this point all the 2014 Xperia’s as well as all the Z Series members including – Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Z Ultra are being considered for it. The executives over at Sony India also confirmed that Android L at this point isn’t a huge change in terms of functioning an hence the UI Overhaul is an issue only for Nexus Devices and those running on a pure version of Android.
So getting to the point here, you must know that till Android L 5.0 comes out in its final form the list for the devices isn’t finalized, though it is confirmed that the update time frame will be in early 2015.
