Looks like Sony Xperia Z3 owners on T-Mobile’s network are in for a treat late this evening. A tweet from Des Smith, T-Mobile‘s product man and social media maniac, made the announcement late this afternoon. Being a twitter share his word choice and his details were a bit limited, but he does state that the update is supposed to start rolling out after midnight pacific standard time, so 3 a.m. for those on the east coast. He also mentions that the update will bring Band 12 support.

Android 5.0 Lollipop is news enough, but that Band 12 support is even better news. Band 12 enables T-Mobiles 700 MHz A block spectrum which will do wonderful things for coverage for many people. It is also one of the few devices that T-Mobile offers that supports that band too.
Be on the look out later tonight, or first thing in the morning, for the update to grace your device. You will want to make sure your device is charged up well over 50% battery, have a stable Wi-Fi connection and some time to kill for it download and install. I would imagine it will sit in the 1GB+ size range. Be sure to follow Des through @askdes on twitter to keep up with the happenings of T-Mobile products.
