Sony’s bringing Android 5.0 Lollipop to a bunch of its phones. The company confirmed its update intentions for a number of specific models all the way back in October, ranging from the original Xperia Z all the way up to the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. In fact, it’s said that every single Xperia Z-series models will eventually be getting Lollipop. And while that’s good to know for owners of those phones, what about all the other Xperia Androids under the sun? Sony’s been less forthcoming about update details for those guys, and we could understand how its silence may be making you a little nervous. This week Sony is finally answering questions about Lollipop on the rest of its Android family, and it’s bad news.

Sony confirms that Lollipop is only coming to Xperia Z-series models, and those alone.

Even recent non-Z phones like the Xperia E4 (above) we saw launch less than one month ago will apparently have to live out the rest of their lives on KitKat.

While we haven’t seen a formal statement to this effect, the official Sony Xperia Twitter account has delivered the very same news to multiple user inquiries, all with unequivocal “Xperia Z-series only” language.

Update: There may be hope yet.
