      Forget 4k though… It’s storage whore right now. I consider it more of a proof of concept than a useable feature.

      No not on this upcoming KitKat update, may be on some other update later after 2-3 months.!

        Hi thanks for the reply! Are you talking about 4k? Timeshift video? tap2wake or everything?

          Only Answering machine and Simple home launcher is included in KitKat for Z1 for the time being…

          Rest all features like 4K, Timeshift Video, Smart call handling/backlight control, tap to wake will not be given now, they will remain exclusive for some time on Z2 and will be given later to Z1 like Z1 UI was given to Z after 2-3 months, same will happen here.

          Z1 is no longer a flagship.!
