Except current phones that are out with 512MB RAM will most definitely not get a 4.4 update...

Anonymous, 31 Oct 2013It's still 5 versions behind iOS. When will the 64 bit version of Android come out?tell me u want 64bit OS AFTER u own a 64bit processor
mixa, 01 Nov 2013If Sony wants to make it, they will.But my guess is that Xperia P will remain on 4.1.2.
On ... morewell I dont think sony, or any mobile manufacturer want to put effort on some old model....
"THEORETICALLY", old model phones can be upgraded to kitkat, but the real problem is, is the phone manufacturer want to provide the update for those old, or even obsolete phones?
nowadays the phone get outdated so fast, thousands of new phones come out every year, lets face it, don't expect the phone maker will keep updating your phone for a life time.
Galaxy Nexus, 31 Oct 2013No worries boys and girls,Galaxy Nexus will get 4.4 via XDA..Unless of course one is too scare... morenot sure, bcz Nexus use TI chip, but TI didn't product chip. so Nexus will not have driver to update.
jigo, 01 Nov 2013Will all 2012 Xperia get this OS update too? thanks..I don't think so, 2013 models will surely get an update up to at least 4.3, but 2012 model, sorry no.
same to the 2013 models as well, when it comes to 2014 & new model comes out, 2013 model wont get any update anymore....

Gelvin, 31 Oct 2013This is very very good. Now Samsung/LG/Sony won't give excuses that the older devices aren't a... moreBut google hasn't mentioned anything about the a cpu, gpu things apart from the 512mb ram thing. Having said that, theres another thing about the older devices, which is internal memory. Lets see, how they are gonna impliment.
Useless update after a month google wil release another update for high-end smartphone
Will the update be rolled out for 2010 handsets too?? Or is it for only the latest handsets?
AJ84, 01 Nov 2013Will this update be applicable on my xperia p? ThnksIf Sony wants to make it, they will.But my guess is that Xperia P will remain on 4.1.2.
On the other hand there is a rumor on some forums that Xperia U/Sola will get KitKats.Time will tell.
I hope my G2 gets it. The disappearing nav bars when launching apps is gold.
Adrian, 01 Nov 2013i have 1 question here, since Google says that 4.4 is optimized for device with as little as 5... moreDevices which are only about a year old and lesser with 512mb of ram are the ones that are most likelyto be updated. But for me since I own xperia v I do hope they ditch the 4.2 or 4.3 and go straight to 4.4 instead.
