Looks like the ship's finally left the port when it comes to Lollipop on the Xperia Z3. After we managed to get our hands on a video of the device running Android Lollipop earlier, today Sony itself has made announcements related to the software and seems like Android Lollipop for the Xperia Z3 will finally start rolling out next week. And not only that, but the carrier has also posted a partial changelog for Lollipop on its current flagship.
