KitKat rolling out to Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra, Z1 and Z1 Compact

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

An Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Xperia Z Ultra, Z1 and Z1 Compact is rolling out to a phone near you today, Sony announced. In addition to the features the newer OS brings, Sony has added their own tweaks, such as a reworked status bar and a quick settings menu. There are also a couple of PS4 inspired UI elements chucked in, alongside updated forms of Sony’s stock apps.

Whilst KitKat may be ready for these devices though, remember that availability of the update will depend on where you live and what carrier you’re with. Sony confirmed back in November that the Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z, too, were eligible for a KitKat update, but they’ll have to wait until at least “mid-Q2” for their update.
