More Xperia Z devices get Android 5.1
These three older handsets now get new firmware and, according to Sony, M2 and M2 Aqua are the next in line.

Sony Mobile unleashed new firmware for three Xperia devices - the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1 Compact smartphones, as well as the Z Ultra phablet. According to Xperia Blog, this new firmware release "is currently live for a few regions for each handset, but we should see availability widen in the coming days."

The same source reveals that build number of the new firmware is 14.6.A.0.368. This patch brings Android 5.1.1 Lollipop to the devices mentioned earlier, and since there is little doubt for the update to be different from previous 5.1 Lollipop updates for the Xperia Z lineup, it should include the following:

  • camera improvements
  • new customization options
  • SmartWear integration
  • enhances enterprise support
  • Stagefright vulnerability fix

In addition to the above, the new firmware will also pack the usual minor fixes, improvements, and tweaks delivered by Google's stock Android 5.1 builds. Sony recently unveiled that Xperia M2 and Xperia M2 Aqua are the next Xperia devices to get new firmware.
