Sony have joined the handful of smartphone makers that have confirmed their ‘selected’ few handset that are due for Android 4.4 KitKat upgrades ‘soon’.
The devices listed to get KitKat are the Xperia Z, Z1, Z Ultra and Tablet Z, though they’ll receive 4.3 first alongside five other smartphones (including a trio of handsets that will jump a version from 4.1 to 4.3). While the rollout is set to begin next month, phones on different carriers or in different parts of the world may not get the upgrade right away. Sony doesn’t appear to have closed the door on the remote possibility of other models getting updated, but as usual, we don’t have high expectations of that happening.
Devices confirmed to receive Android 4.4 soon:
– Xperia Z
– Xperia Z1
– Xperia ZL
– Xperia Z Ultra
– Xperia Tablet Z
