Sony States Devices Getting Jelly Bean 4.3 And KitKat 4.4 Updates
Its already becoming a tradition that whenever a new version of Android Operating system OS is released, everyone is stock with the thought of whether or not their phones or devices will be getting the update. Some couple of days back, HTC disclosed that some of its devices will be getting the android kitkat 4.4 update within 90 days. Motorola also stated its devices that will be getting the new update and this time, Sony is getting out in front of the questions by clarifying its plans for a number of phones and tablets. The updates is said to start rolling out next month and definitely not on all devices.
According to the sony ericsson blog, Sony says that the Android 4.3 update is going to start rolling out next month for the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia SP, Xperia Z Ultra, and Xperia Z1. Confirming its previous plans, Sony is also going to be bumping the Xperia T, Xperia TX, and Xperia V from Android 4.1 directly to 4.3. This will also start next month. However, this comes with the notification that not all markets and carriers will get the update at the same time.
As for Android 4.4, Sony has decided which phones will be in the first batch of updates – the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia Z Ultra, and Xperia Z1. Please understand that these devices will be in the first batch to get the new OS which means other devices may get the update in subsequent time. However, Sony didn’t have an estimate of when that update would begin, but it’s like its been stated in its official blog, update would start rolling out by next month.
