Above tweet clearly says that Xperia users will get a solid info on the android 4.4 KitKat and android 4.3 update for them. Hopefully Sony will tell the approx. timing of rolling update and the phones getting it.
Android 4.4 includes “Project Svelte ” which is an effort by Google to run android 4.4 KitKat even on low memory devices with 512 MB RAM, so can we also expect it on low end Xperia handsets.
Let us know what do you think, which Xperia handsets will get now android 4.4 KitKat update and should Sony skip android 4.3 now ? Drop your comments below…
