Sony has already announced the Android 4.4 upgrade roadmap for its smartphones which majorly included top-of-the-line devices. However, the Sony support page for few Xperia smartphones suggest that Android 4.4 KitKat update might be coming for smartphones that include the Xperia SP mid-range smartphone.
