The Sony Xperia Z1, out of the box, and, as of today, and our review, is powered by Android 4.2.2. However, that’s about to change, and, a recent report claims knowledge of the phone maker’s plans to push the latest and greatest version of Android, not even official yet, 4.4 KitKat, to the king of waterproof phones.
November 7 is the date rumored for such a release. Furthermore, it is being claimed that other Sony devices will follow, like to original Xperia Z, as well as the oversized Z Ultra. Apparently, the changes within the OS itself are not the only ones Z1 owners will see: Sony is planning a lot of new bits, including improvements and advancements to the software (X Reality engine is among them), so, if this report turns out to be true, it’s definitely worth looking forward to it.
