Sony Mobile launches 'Concept for Android' initiative

Wednesday 22 July 2015 | 14:33 CET | News
Sony Mobile has announced the launch of a new initiative called "Concept for Android", giving owners of the Xperia Z3 smartphone in Sweden the opportunity to try out a concept operating system based on Android 5.1. Sony said the OS has significant differences compared to its current commercial releases, with what it describes as "a stripped back, vanilla Android look and feel, with native Sony features and apps we find most popular amongst our users". A total of 500 Xperia Z3 owners are invited to apply for software trial from 27 July to 13 September via the Xperia Lounge app.
