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.
