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!

  2. I have upgraded my Xperia Z Ultra to Kitkat build 14.3.A.0.757 and the sound bug that happened with yhe previous update was fixed. But the build 757 has a new problem. The phone now very power hungry. Even after enabling all the power saving features, my phone can barely last a workingday. Previously it can last two days before the battery runs out.

    My advise to those who have not upgraded is do NOT upgrade to version 14.3.A.0.757

      Thanks for the info sir, but the sound bug issue is really annoying. I will update my Z1 to .757 on my day off. I thought they fixed the battery with this update.
