While the Sony Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra users started receiving the official Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the one and only Google Play Edition of Sony, Xperia Z Ultra is getting the Android 4.4.2 KitKat starting today.
Recently, other than Nexus smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S4 GPE, HTC One GPE and LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition devices were receiving the new KitKat firmware update and the Sony’s device was left out and the rollout finally begins.
This new firmware update brings several bug fixes, including the ability to uninstall those apps, which were downloaded from Google Play Store. Xperia Z Ultra GPE users were experiencing a “UI restart” while doing this task before. Security settings bug as well as Google Now voice command problems also resolved in this update.
The firmware update contains 444MB of files and available to download from today. If you haven’t got the update notifications, just do it manually by going to settings > about device > software update. Make sure you have a WiFi connectivity as well as at least 80% charged battery.
The firmware update starts rolling out from today and weighs 444MB so it may take a bit longer to download.
However, the official Android 4.3 Jelly Bean’s rollout to normal Z1 and Z Ultra is announced by Sony Mobile in their official blog. It also posted the changelog and the new features in the post, which you can go through via the source link below.
