Android 4.4 KitKat for Sony Xperia ZR under consideration

         

Sony used to be among the many first producers to disclose its plans to launch Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade for its phones. The first wave of devices includes the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 and the Xperia Tablet Z. Now, Sony has hinted in its support pages that the Xperia SP will be getting the update, as well as revealed the devices that are currently “under investigation”.

The phones in question are the Sony Xperia T, Xperia TX, Xperia V as well as the Xperia ZR. This means the company is researching whether KitKat will run smoothly enough on those phones.

Google has already announced that the 4.4 KitKat is designed to scale and automatically fit on the devices with as little as 512 MB of RAM. So, it’s pretty likely that more mid-range Sony phones will be able to make it to Android 4.4.

It’s too early to talk about a specific time frame for the software rollout for the Xperia T, TX, V and the ZR. However, the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 and the Xperia Tablet Z will be getting the KitKat update by the end of the year.
