Remember the Sony Xperia SP? It's not getting an official KitKat update36
However, it seems that the Sony Xperia SP will never receive the chocolate firmware update. This information straight from the horse's mouth, as Sony confirmed that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will be, unfortunately, the latest and final firmware version for the device. This way, the Xperia SP joins the ranks of the Samsung's Galaxy S III, its 2012 flagship, and a whole plethora of other Android devices from the past one or two years that are otherwise capable of handling KitKat pretty well (courtesy of a custom ROM, that is), but are doomed to remain on Jelly Bean, at least officially.
Galaxy S III. Then again, Sony's UI is significantly lighter than Samsung's TouchWiz, but in both cases, neither device is receiving the sugarey Android version.
At least officially, that is.
