Xperia SP Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade moves to “Under Investigation” from “Future Version”


The most awaiting moment for Android phone users is their smartphone getting upgrade to a newer version. However, it becomes difficult for companies as well to put new resources to their older devices due to lack of manpower and even because they have to promote their new products. Even though late, Xperia SP users have recently got the android 4.3 Jelly Bean update and soon after this release there were news for the KitKat 4.4 to come to the device soon. However, as of for now it seems uncertain for this update to arrive.


The above image shows that Sony’s product pages earlier showed KitKat 4.4 to be the “future version” for the Xperia SP. However, now this tag has changed to “Under Investigation” hinting the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to be the last update. It’s quite normal as non-flagship devices would hardly get more than one major update. However, the new tag of “Under Investigation” suggests Sony could re-think several times for bringing the OS to the device.

However, we can keep our hopes positive to hear some good official new from Sony for the update.
