Android 5.0.2 coming to Sony Z series starting next week

"Product so and so will be receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update soon". This has been a common headline in a lot of tech news the past months, but some Android devices from different OEMs are still waiting for the update to rollout. Sony has been part of that kind of news when it comes not just to their Xperia devices but to their other series as well. At least now, they've finally announced a date. Well, sort of.

Android 5.0 Lollipop for AT&T Galaxy S5 now ready

New Sony Xperia C4 Cosmos image leaks

We are certainly fans of leaked details on smartphones around these parts and more detail of the Sony Xperia C4 Cosmos smartphone has leaked out today. This new leak doesn't offer up more specs on the device, it's a new photo.

T-Mobile discontinues Sony Xperia Z3 deal

The Sony Xperia Z4 has yet to be released and we're guessing mobile carriers are already preparing for its coming. However, there is still the Xperia Z3 to deal with. In January, the smartphone together with the Xperia Z3 Compact, were rooted finally. We learned Android 5.0 Lollipop is coming to the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3 a few months after Sony played around with Lollipop AOSP on a Z3. A purple Xperia Z3 Purple Diamond Edition was also revealed after a limited edition series was announced earlier.

If you believe the source and the images that have been leaked, we've got ourselves our first full look at the upcoming (but unconfirmed) new flagship from Sony, the Xperia Z4. The photos show the physicality of the new smartphone, confirming some of the earlier leaked details. The source for the pictures also added some previously unknown details about it, including Sony possibly releasing two variants of the Xperia Z4, with the main difference being screen resolution.

New leaked images of upcoming Xperia Z4 confirms earlier rumors

Sony has yet to officially announce that there will even be a new Xperia, but already rumors and leaks have been running around in the tech blogosphere. At first it was just renders, then came the supposed specs and details of the Xperia Z4. A few days ago, a "mystery Sony phone" seemed to have cleared the FCC. And now, alleged pictures of the upcoming smartphone have been leaked on a Russian tech website.

Sony buys OnLive, cloud gaming operations to end April 30

We haven't heard much about OnLive lately since that report about the first buyers of Galaxy Note 4 getting free access to OnLive gaming. That was back in October last year and looks like things haven't been pretty well for the cloud gaming company. OnLive used to be worth $1.8 billion. It was once estimated to be with that value but for some reasons, it got into a lot of debt so they had to lay off employees and were sold for a low price of $4.8 million in 2012.

Mystery Sony phone clears the FCC, could be the Xperia Z4

No doubt the Xperia Z4 will be Sony's next flagship Android phone. The company skipped the Mobile World Congress last month but we saw the Xperia M4 Aqua midrange phone and the Xperia Z4 Tablet. Despite all the hype, leaked specs, front panel leaks from a Chinese source, a Geekbench apperance, the front housing and more renders being leaked, and the very recent GFXBench sighting, we have yet to see the light of the Xperia Z4.
