HTC and Sony reveal Android 5.0 Lollipop plans

HTC and Sony have both revealed their plans for bringing Google’s new Lollipop version of Android to their flagship phones.

HTC says that last year’s One and this year’s One M8 will receive Android Lollipop within 90 days of it receiving final code from Google. It has said that it doesn’t ‘have any details’ about when the software will come to its other devices.

That may raise concerns among users who have previously been burned by HTC’s failure to bring Android to devices in a timely fashion. Earlier this year, the company committed to all of its new phones getting the latest Android updates for two years, after it caused outrage by revealing its One X and One X+ devices would not be getting Android KitKat.

Sony, meanwhile, says it will bring Android 5.0 to ‘the entire Xperia Z series. However, it is being somewhat vague with timings, saying Xperia Z3 and Z2 models will get in on the action from ‘early 2015’ with other updates ‘continuing thereafter’.

Motorola, Nexus and Google Play devices will all get a taste of Android Lollipop first. The new look OS is set to roll out next month.
