Android 4.4 KitKat coming to the Sony Xperia SP, ‘under investigation’ for four additional devices

November 22, 2013

    Earlier this month Sony confirmed that it was readying Android 4.4 KitKat for the Xperia Z, Tablet Z, Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia Z1. At the time, Sony mentioned this would be the “first raft” of products confirmed for an eventual KitKat upgrade, hinting that more would be announced in the future.

    Although Sony has yet to officially reveal any details about its “second raft”, Sony’s support page seems confirm that the Sony Xperia SP is getting a future KitKat update, and even hints that at least four more devices may be added to the KitKat list in the near future.

    Besides the SP, Sony indicates that a KitKat update is “under investigation” for the Xperia ZR, Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V. While this doesn’t confirm that any of the four “investigated” devices will see KitKat — it’s certainly a good sign.

    As for when? That’s when things get a big fuzzier. Sony has yet to reveal any specific target dates for its Android 4.4 KitKat rollout, though more likely it will focus on newer devices like the Sony Xperia Z1 first. Either way, it looks like Sony is taking the Android 4.4 KitKat update seriously and is attempting to bring the tasty treat to as many of its devices as possible.

    As always, we’ll be sure to update on the situation as soon as we learn more.

      Under investigation for what ?
      SP can handle it but then again oem need to make money so many will get ditched for no reason

        chipset compatability, perfect example of this problem is the Xperia S, qualcomm killed the driver production for the S3 series so, No updates for the S

      Saludos desde Venezuela… Estoy muy desilucionado porque no mencionan el Xperia acro S… me encantaría que sony considerara actualizar este grandioso terminal… podríamos hacer una campaña de firmas, likes o +1 para lograr que voltearan a mirar algunos de nuestros dispositivos que no están en su lista???
