Sony to update Xperia SP with Android 4.4 KitKat, Xperia T, TX, V, ZR might be next
Sony has already confirmed that its first Android 4.4 KitKat raft of devices to receive the new goodies includes its hottest phones: the Xperia ZL, Z and Z Ultra. But knowing the depths of the Xperia range portfolio, it was only a matter of time for the rest of the Sony crop to start showing up as candidates for the new update.

The folks over at the Xperia Blog have been keeping tabs on the progress the Japanese manufacturer is making, and it now becomes apparent that the company will be pushing KitKat to at least the Xperia SP. The rest – the Xperia T, TX, V and ZR – all list Android 4.4 KitKat as 'under investigation', which we take to mean that Sony is at the very least considering spreading the joy.

Obviously, these are some pretty great news for a big chunk of Xperia owners. What's even better, however, is the telling tempo of Android 4.4 KitKat roll-out, regardless of manufacturer. Let's just hope that we're on a path to better times, when worrying over updates is a thing of the past.

Sony should update more phones to Android KitKat, like the Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia P, Xperia U, Xperia Sola etc. but that's impossible since Qualcomm didn't support the S3 chipset and the Novathor chipset is dead now. But still, good job Sony!

So the ZR's KitKat update is still under investigation when it has almost the same hardware as the Z with lower screen resolution... :/

They still have to update their phones including Z, Z1 and Z Ultra to 4.3, it's going to be a long wait for 4.4 KitKat it seems, no wonder it just says "Future Version".

Is it any of your business?
You can stick with your plastic which will get Kitkat in January.

From those unofficial leaks next year S3, GN2, S4, and GN3 will get Android 4.4 but can you tell what happen with the rest of samsung 2013 devices??

Because this year alone samsung has released more than 39 android devices, can you please tell wich phone is already recieved android 4.3 and how many of them will get android 4.3?

Sony is already confirmed that starting next month they will rolling 4.3 for Xperia Z series, SP, T, TX and V or about 75% of this year devices and 3 from last year.

They also has officialy confirmed 4.4 will be available for almost all Z series and SP.

If SP can get 4.4 there is no doubt that ZR will get 4.4, i'm also sure Sony will make 4.4 available for T, TX, and V (maybe the last updates for them).

How is it? Especially the camera? I'm torn between the ZR and the SP (since Z1 and Z1s would probably be over of my budget) :(

ZR is better in every way, but it has little to no developer support (Very few custom ROM's) if that doesnt matter to you, then i suggest going for the ZR
