Sony users! Take a deep breath and gear up for some bad news. Sony has officially announced that few of its previously released handsets will not be treated to the Android KitKat update.
The list of handsets in this unfortunate list include the likes of Sony Xperia L, Sony Xperia M, Sony Xperia C and Sony Xperia SP. What this means is that users owning any of these handsets can effectively forget about upgrading the platform of the phone (unless you root your way out of this one).
As far as a bit of history is concerned, the last software version update sent out for the Xperia L was Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The Xperia M (alongside Xperia M Dual) and SP, on the other hand, are running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
And while this is a common factor among all smartphone makers that they stop sending updates to a certain set of handsets, but it's actually a surprising decision from Sony not to support these phones.
That's because all of these four handsets have 1 GB RAM and dual processor CPU, and that makes them capable enough of running Android KitKat 4.4. But Sony did roll out the KitKat upgrade for its Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Xperia Tablet Z devices.
