Google’s formal announcement of Android 4.4 KitKat took place last week. Android enthusiasts around the world are definitely wondering when the update is going to be rolled out for their devices. Google will release KitKat for supported existing Nexus devices over the next few weeks, whereas OEMs are gradually outlining their own roadmaps as well. Sony today revealed its Android 4.4 KitKat and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean upgrade roadmap, however since software rollouts are phased, timing and availability may vary by country and carrier.

Starting next month, from the Xperia Z smartphone lineup, the Z, ZL, ZR, SP, Z Ultra and Z1 will receive the Android 4.3 update along with the Xperia Tablet Z. Since the company has already mentioned that a number of its devices are going to jump from Android 4.1 to Android 4.3, today it confirmed that Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V will be making the jump. Sony also confirms that the first raft of Xperia devices to get the Android 4.4 KitKat update include the Z, ZL, Z Ultra, Z1 and the Xperia Tablet Z. The company doesn’t say anything about timing though, it says that updates about specific release times for these products will be provided “as things progress.” Don’t get your hopes up for an immediate release, it may take well over a couple of months before the update is finally rolled out.
