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.
