Today we have added Android 5.0 AOSP device configuration source code, pre-built software binaries and build instructions for Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1 Compact. If you’re a custom ROM developer, you can now create Android 5.0, Lollipop, AOSP-based custom ROMs for these devices.
Several of the latest Xperia devices, including Xperia Z2, feature a self-contained sensor co-processor. This sensor co-processor makes it possible to continuously collect data in the background, without using the main application processor. This will enable up to ten times lower power consumption when using always-on features in sensors, compared to a system without a sensor co-processor. Learn how to use this in your app!
