Re: Will Xperia S have the new Android 4.4 KitKat?

The only info is that the Z series and SP will get it android 4.3, and that Sony is testing other Xperias running 4.1 to update them to 4.3 that's about it, check the official news blog for more info.

My opinion is that the Xperia S will not get 4.4, but that's my opinion

Re: Will Xperia S have the new Android 4.4 KitKat?

but now imo, 4.4 is lightest os component which can suite 512 mb ram with 4.1 can get 4.4 update..

according to sonyblog,

sxs will not get update.. this not so nice..

sxs should get 4.4 update, no other go..

sxs user can request 4.4 update..

only then v can receive that update asap.. it's on the hands of sxs users..

Re: Will Xperia S have the new Android 4.4 KitKat?

Hello, Yes Android 4.4 can run in devices with 512MB RAM. But major obstacle for Sony Xperia S is its Snapdragon S3 processor. Qualcomm stopped driver support for S3 chips. So it is mostly impossible to get new OS updates. But lets hope we get good performance updates or may be OS updates if possible:smileysmileywink:. 

 

 

KUDOS are Welcomed 

Walking in Water with Xperia. Happy to have KUDOS:smileysmileythumbsup: if I was helpful.

Re: Will Xperia S have the new Android 4.4 KitKat?

Looks like Xperia S will not get 4.3 or 4.4, but Is there going to be some firmware update till end of 2013 for Xperia S ?
