Just a big news came fronm SVP, Android, Chrome & Apps, Google “Sundar Pichai”, confirmed that “Android 4.4 KitKat update” will soon follow the existing android 4.3 Jelly Bean update :)

Sundar Pichait tweeted saying “We now have over 1 Billion Android activations and hope this guy in front of the building  keeps that momentum going“.

[ Android 4.3 UPDATE - 7 November ]  

[ Android 4.4 KitKat UPDATE - 7 November ]

As next Android 4.4 KitKat Update has been officially announced now and still we haven’t seen android 4.3 update on any Xperia Phone. Xperia Z1 which will be launched on 4 Sept at IFA 2013 will also have android 4.2.2 version.

Which Xperia Phones will get Android 4.4 KitKat Update ?

Question arises in mind, Which Xperia Phones will get this major Android 4.4 KitKat Update ? Sony has already officially announced their plans to roll out android 4.3 on Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, Z Ultra, Tablet Z and Xperia SP, they also hinted some Xperia phone will get android 4.3 directly from android 4.1, hopefully it was for Xperia S, SL, Acro S and Ion. ( May be Xperia aslo ).

Which Xperia Phones will get Android 4.4 KitKat Update

As it seems Sony is neglecting their 2011 handsets now for the android update 4.3, in that case it’s quite obvious curiosity in every Xperia user that which Xperia phones will get this  Major Android 4.4 KitKat Update ?

What do you say guys, do you think Xperia S, SL, Acro S and Ion will be given Android 4.3 update and on the a major android 4.4 KitKat update ? Well it seems that whole Xperia Z series line up and new “One Sony” line up will get this  Major Android 4.4 KitKat Update.

No release date from officials have been made on ETA of next  Major Android 4.4 KitKat Update, but it will come soon before Android 5.0.

Keep trending till then #AndroidKitKat :)

What do you think on this announcement, will your Xperia get this update…

    Is it possible to update my sony xperia U android to 4.0to 4.4 or 4.3

    • Barracuda September 18, 2013 at 9:34 am - Reply

      Not yet, 4.1 update was rumored/expected for this phone (since a few others already received it e.g. Miro) but Sony is still ‘working on it’. If 4.4 will support legacy handsets with 512mb ram then I expect to see an update for Xperia U and other less powerfull handsets released in 2012.

    If Sony won’t update P I will never buy any Sony product anymore and will tell everyone to do so. We need to stop this discrimination!

    • RedSon December 17, 2013 at 7:09 pm - Reply

      Yeah the discrimination against old phones…. its called moving forward get a new phone if you want the update, don’t be some idiot who sits there and complains because their “new” phone which is now almost 2 years old isn’t getting kit kat. so get off your high horse and go spend some money so you can get what you want… or sit down and shut up about this “discrimination”

      • Sit Down March 11, 2014 at 7:08 pm - Reply

        Yeah, but TL isn’t on the list either, and it’s just now 1.5 years old (released late 2012), so sit down, shut up, and think before you speak next time.

    WHY ISN’T EXPERIA ION BEING NOT PROVIDED VT KITKAT AFTER ALL KITKAT IS BUILT TO SUPPORT ANDROID PHONES WITH 512 RAM, THEN WHY NOT FOR ION OR REST OF THE XPERIA PHONE WITH 1GB RAM ?

    • Anurag Kumar November 28, 2013 at 5:22 pm - Reply

      The issue is with snapdragon 3 chipset, it is not compatiable with kitkat and 4.3 so far…
