xperia z ultra google play edition  (1)

Sony has begun rolling out the latest version of Android to its freshly launched Google Play edition of the Xperia Z Ultra.

The update brings much needed fixes to a number of serious bugs that users found on the Z Ultra GPe out of the box. Namely, the security settings menu was inaccessible, users were unable to uninstall apps from the device, clearing data in an app caused forced closures, and using voice commands in Google Now was riddled with various small issues. Google has previously confirmed the bugs and promised to act fast, and it seems that the promise was kept.

Users report that the OTA is a sizeable 444MB. We haven’t heard of a direct download link so far, but we’ll update this post as soon as we find one.

The Sony Z Ultra GPe launched on December 10, alongside the LG G Pad 8.3 GPe, which already received its Android 4.4.2 update. Sony’s device comes with a brilliant 6.4-inch display, a Snapdragon 800 processor, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Everything’s packed in an incredibly sleek body that measures just 6.5 millimeters in thickness.

The Sony Z Ultra GPe is available in the Play Store for $649.
