Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play edition to get update to Android 4.4.3, according to Bluetooth SIG
This past week, Sprint rolled out Android 4.4.3 for the Nexus 5. Which device is next to receive the update? It could be the Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play edition. According to the Bluetooth SIG, the phone with the 6.4 inch screen has been certified for Android 4.4.3. If you're looking for this in black and white on the Bluetooth SIG, you won't find it. What you will find is reference to the "Togari GPE". Togari is the code name for the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and GPE means Google Play edition. The software version listed is KTU72.S1.3013, which is believed to represent Android 4.4.3.

The Google Play edition phones use a stock Android OS, making it quicker to update than unlocked and carrier versions. The updates are sent out directly from Google. A wide range of devices, from flagship models to the Motorola Moto G, now offer a Google Play edition, which can be purchased from the Google Play Store.

Sony hasn't confirmed that the update is coming, so the Japanese manufacturer has not yet revealed a date when Android 4.4.3 will be pushed out to the device.

I have an unlocked Z Ultra now. I hope there is a Z Ultra 2 with a better camera and stereo speakers. But if AT&T picks up Z2 it will be tempting. Although going back to a smaller screen will be tough.
