KitKat 10

A couple of months later than expected, Sony has now started pushing out the much-anticipated Android 4.4.2 KitKat over-the-air update to all unlocked variants of its flagship smartphone phablet of 2013, the Xperia Z Ultra, located in the United States. In addition to the latest build of the open-source operating system, this upgrade also brings improved battery efficiency and enhanced call quality.

With regards to added functionality, Android 4.4.2 is an incredibly major upgrade from 4.3, packing a completely redesigned user interface, SMS message integration in the standard Hangouts application, Google Now on the home screen, Wi-Fi printing capabilities for HP ePrinters and Google Print customers, autocomplete for the traditional telephone dialer, Emoji integration for Google Keyboard, built-in word processing software and lots, lots more.

If you own an unlocked model of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and have not yet received the OTA update, you can head into “Settings,” then “About Device,” and select “Check for Updates” to manually scan for the upgrade. Alternatively, you can wait for the push notification to arrive on your handset prompting you to download and install the software update.
