Xperia T2 Ultra Android 4.4.2 KitKat update now rolling [Update]

by XB on 16th July 2014

in Android, Firmware, Xperia E1, Xperia M2, Xperia T2 Ultra

T2 UltraSony has started to roll out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat (sorry no 4.4.4) firmware update to the Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia T2 Ultra Dual handsets. The KitKat update will update Xperia T2 Ultra handsets to software build number 19.1.A.0.473, whilst Xperia T2 Ultra Dual owners will be updated with build number 19.1.C.0.116.

So far we haven’t seen anyone reporting that they have received the update, our resident Xperia T2 Ultra Dual has seen no update at the time of posting. Hopefully, the updates should start soon though as Sony has updated both product pages to reflect the new update, which includes the changelog below.

Xperia T2 Ultra KitKat update changelog

– Introducing Android 4.4.2 KitKat with many new features and enhancements
– Updated Camera application and overall tuning to improve the camera experience
– Enhanced email app
– Stability, performance & battery improvements

Features wise you should expect no difference to what we’ve already seen with the Xperia Android 4.4.2 update on other phones. This includes a transparent navigation bar, a tweaked Status Bar and Quick Settings, new boot animation and themes and compatibility with the SmartBand SWR10 and Lifelog app.

If you have downloaded this latest KitKat update for the Xperia T2 Ultra and T2 Ultra Dual then let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

  • lovelesh

    Nothing difference is there while there is option of move app to sd card

    But the obb data of large game and all data of app still remain in internal storage no much differnce is there in available storage after move app to sa card very bad thing

    I dont know why Sony put this option if obb data still remain in internal storage

    So installing large game still not possible due to less internal storage

    Very bad

  • lovelesh

    Sd card sorry for mis typing not sa card it is sd card

  • karthik

    Im from India bought xperia t2 ultra dual few weeks before but I’m still can’t update from 4.2 to 4.4…i even tried it on Sony update center on my mobile but its still showing that my phone is up-to-date. But nothing has would be better if sony give a solution to this issue..

  • Oobiewan

    It’s here. Some very annoying bugs remained. Like if I use the lock screen camera, I cannot even change to panorama mode, because it exits to the locksreen to unlock the phone.

  • Oobiewan

    and no, why on earth would the navigation buttons be from the L release. They stayed as they were.

  • Naveen

    cool update nothing much change. can move apps to sd, cool notificaton bar.. can take screenshots.. looks great..



  • Prudhvi

    It is available in India :)
    I have updated my Xperia T2 dual mobile on 21st July.

  • Mohammed Jasam

    Guys don’t upgrade to KitKat On t2 ultra, I has many glitches, the overall experience is spoilt. The UI became slow, the only addition is Apps To SD but that doesn’t compensate the troubles it has created in the UI. For more detailed explanation talk to me at “”

  • mukesh

    In t2 ultra apps will move in internal sd card not in external sd card so again it’s droback.

  • mukesh

    I updated to kitkat but apps move in internal sd not in external. If I placed to games like asphalt 8 and real racing then what will remains.

  • Mahmoud

    what about camera quality after update and speakers ?

  • solano89

    After this update my phone has a reboot issue, restarts 3-4 times a day. How can I fix this, before the update no restart at all and I updated my phone with PC Companion, is there any way to fix this (not service)?
