It has been a long wait for Sony Xperia Z2 owners (D65XX) who have been wondering when the Android 4.4.4 firmware update might arrive. This has been made more frustrating when many of Sony’s older devices have seen Android 4.4.4, whilst the Xperia Z2 has been ‘stuck’ on 4.4.2.
Well a new firmware update has just been certified for both the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet with build number 23.0.1.A.0.167 that will bring Android 4.4.4. As you can tell from the big move in build number, it aligns the firmware with the Xperia Z2 series firmware (23.0.X.X.XXX). This should mean a similar UI to the Xperia Z3, but we can’t confirm at this stage whether that means all of the Z3 features will be ported across. We’ll keep you posted once the firmware starts to roll.
