Two days back we saw 14.3.A.0.681 firmware getting rolled on an user’s Xperia Z Ultra C6833 which is an upcoming Android 4.4.2 KitKat update planned by Sony. It is believed either it is some internal leak or an update over developer handset as neither Sony nor any user reported it. Android 4.4.2 KitKat being a major update will definitely see a formal announcement from Sony when it is rolled for concerned devices.
Except for some 14.3.A.0.681 firmware screenshots nothing else was spotted, no detailed changelog. Well just now EXR Team has leaked Xperia Z Ultra Android 4.4.2 KitKat 14.3.A.0.681 firmware System Dump, which is available for download now. Kindly note it is a system dump, not Xperia Z Ultra 14.3.A.0.681 firmware ftf so it can not be flashed on any Xperia Z Ultra.

Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware update will take a bit more time while it is officially rolled on Sony devices. A big concern among users has come up whether Sony will give all new KitKat features which we spotted on Xperia Z2, well it seems 4K Cam app, TimeShift Video app and a few other features like Tap to Wake Up etc. will remain exclusive on Xperia Z2 for the time being.
We will keep you updated as we get more info on Android 4.4.2 KitKat roll out. Drop your comments below if you have any questions.
