If you are a user of Sony's high-end smartphones, there is good news for you. Your smartphones are now finally set to receive the much expected Google Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update.

According to an official tweet by Sony Xperia, the company's core Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 series of smartphones and tablets will receive Android Lollipop by the beginning of 2015, which means that you get to test out the Material Design feature (brought along by Android Lollipop) very soon.

As of now, Sony's popular Xperia Z Ultra Google Play edition (GPe) tablet has already received the Android Lollipop, thanks to its stock Android nature.

Also, Sony had earlier announced that the whole of its Xperia Z series will be updated to Android Lollipop.
