Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, and Tablet Z to get KitKat updates
We’ve reported on Sony promising an Android KitKat update for devices like the Sony Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, and Xperia Tablet Z last month. True enough, the company kept its word by announcing the schedule of when it will roll out which means it will also follow here in the Philippines.
According to Xperia Blog, the KitKat update for the said devices will be arriving next month. Do expect, though, that these may come mid to late of May 2014. Regarding what the update contains wasn’t disclosed from the announcement but hopefully it adds the list of new integration that was included in last month’s report which includes the following:
Tweaked Status Bar and Quick Settings are more intuitive and customizable so you only get the notifications you need
Sony PlayStation 4-inspired user interface
Proprietary apps like Messaging, MyXperia, Smart Connect, Sony Select, Smart Social Camera get updated and improved
Sony’s media apps integrated with Sony Entertainment Network & PlayMemories with more intuitive UI, better download speeds, and more
Xperia themes with downloadable UI packs from Sony Select
For owners of the mentioned devices, hold on tight as Android KitKat will be available real soon!
