Sony's Xperia Z1, Xperia Z and Xperia Z Ultra will all get updated to Android KitKat.
Google are expected to launch the Google Nexus 5 next week and it's expected to be the first smartphone to come pre-loaded with Android KitKat (4.4). We'll be looking to the mobile manufacturers to confirm which of their smartphones will be updated to KitKat and of course when.
Things look set to get sweeter for owners of the Sony's Xperia Z1 with freshly leaked information suggesting it'll be upgraded to Android KitKat on November 7th. Apparently, the update will then subsequently roll-out to Sony's previous flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z, and the over-sized Xpera Z Ultra.
Very little information is known about Android KitKat with Google staying tight-lipped about their operating system update. However, a slide from an Intel presentation suggests that it could bring 64 bit processor support - a feature that was also introduced in Apple's latest operating system, iOS 7.
Google are also expected to introduce a more contemporary user-interface with Android KitKat coming with a flatter design and a more neutral colour-scheme - not all that dissimilar to the changes Apple introduced in iOS 7. That's all we've got for now, but we only have to wait a week or so now before we learn all about Google's platform.
As soon as 3G get any more information about Android KitKat or Sony's smartphone you'll be the first to know!
