A new rumour claims that Sony will release the Android 4.4 KitKat update for its flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z1
, in November.
As per AndroidSaS, the Japanese giant is working on its update platform based on Android's latest mobile and tablet iteration, which was announced a few months back. The site reveals that the company plans to roll out the update for the flagship in the first week of November, and further claims that November 7 might be the Android 4.4 update rollout date for Xperia Z1.
Moreover, the site expects that after rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat update for Xperia Z1, the company might roll out the latest Android update for a few other Xperia devices like, Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia Z.
The update is also expected to come bundled with major fixes including bugs, security vulnerabilities, and improvements to the X-Reality Engine. For now, there is no official word from Sony on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update for any Xperia device.
