Owners of the Xperia Z smartphones by Sony are still waiting for the official release of Android 5.0 Lollipop for their devices. It seems that they might not have to wait much longer though.

Sony has been working to release Android 5.0 Lollipop to Xperia Z smartphones ever since Google's latest version for its mobile operating system was unveiled.

Over the current week, owners of Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact devices should expect to receive the rolled out update into Google's latest mobile operating system. Next week, owners of the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet should expect their turn to come for the rolled out update.

The Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia C3 will also be receiving the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Through the Sony Xperia Google+ account, Sony has even posted a teaser image to signal that Android 5.0 Lollipop is coming to Xperia Z series smartphones.

"Android Lollipop is coming soon," the post said, in addition to an image of an Xperia Z device flanked by the text "Coming soon..."

There is no exact release date yet for owners of the classic Xperia Z smartphone to receive their update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, but at least users are sure that it will be arriving soon. Through the Sony Mobile News Twitter account, it was revealed that the operating system update for the Xperia Z1 Compact will be rolled out simultaneously with that for the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra devices. The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Xperia Z2 was also confirmed to be released next week.

Sony, however, has announced that it will not be rolling out an Android 5.0 Lollipop update to smartphones that are not included in the Xperia Z line, save for the Xperia T2 Ultra and the Xperia C3, which Sony said would soon receive the update.

While Sony is busy rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its current lineup of Xperia Z devices, it is also preparing to launch the recently unveiled Xperia Z4 tablet that could be the last such device that Sony could produce.

Early reviews on the Xperia Z4, however, have generally been good, with the tablet being geared to possibly slice into the share of the dominant Apple iPad in the consumer tablet market.

If Sony's smartphones continue to perform below expectations, the company could decide to sell off the entire division.
