Sony's Xperia Z2 is finally getting a bump to Android 4.4 KitKat and along with Google's software Sony has made a few changes of its own. About time we say as it is telling that the Z2 is Sony's current flagship but is still running the last version of Android, Jelly Bean.

Of course, the Xperia Z2 will be replaced in the coming months by the Xperia Z3 and that device will obviously ship with KitKat. We hope Sony will not take as long to bring Android L to the Z3, while we hope the L Release also finds itself to the Z2 at some point. As we mentioned, Sony has enhanced the KitKat experience beyond Google's core offering, while the Japanese company has also taken the time to improve some features of the Z2.

Sony says it has enhanced the quality of voice calls, improved the touch quality while boosting performance, increased charging capacity when the battery is low, and of course the company has removed bugs, made general fixes, and made the device speedier overall.

Sony is unable to give a specific date for the roll out simply because it depends on what region or carrier you are with. However, the software update is available from today so if you are lucky enough you may be able to find it now.
