Sony announce update schedule for Jelly Bean 4.3 and KitKat

Sony have come under heavy fire in the past for not providing updates to its Android phones, but the release of its update schedule will come as pleasant reading to many Sony owners.


Android Jelly Bean 4.3 will be rolled-out in December to the following devices:

  • Xperia Z
  • Xperia ZL
  • Xperia ZR
  • Xperia Tablet Z
  • Xperia SP
  • Xperia Z Ultra
  • Xperia Z1
  • Xperia T
  • Xperia TX
  • Xperia V

After that’s complete the roll-out of KitKat 4.4 will start to, what Sony call, the “first raft” of devices:

  • Xperia Z
  • Xperia ZL
  • Xperia Tablet Z
  • Xperia Z Ultra
  • Xperia Z1

Here’s hoping that there will be a second raft!

There are the usual disclaimers that the timescales may be delayed due to carriers etc., but it looks like there’s more commitment to the future for many Sony owners than we’ve seen for a long time.
