Two popular Android smartphones has been brought recently to the
latest version of the OS - 4.4 KitKat. Sony has launched the official
KitKat update for the Xperia Z Ultra phablet.
The first device to get it is apparently the C6833 LTE model in Hong
Kong. The new firmware is available only over the air for now, but we
expect Sony to launch it soon via its PC Companion. We also hope
other markets will be joining Hong Kong soon enough.
HTC has also begun seeding the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the
Butterfly S. The smartphone received Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with
Sense UI 5.5 in January, but it seems HTC has been already working
hard on the KitKat firmware.
The KitKat update will bring on your Butterfly S the latest Android OS,
Cloud Print Service, Security enhancements, new Bluetooth profiles,
but will remove the support for Adobe Flash in the default web
browser. Bummer indeed, but it isn't that unexpected since Android no
longer supports it. The new firmware is available over the air and
weighs about 740MB.
