Sony Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra might go directly to KitKat in January, Xperia Z, ZR, ZL getting Android 4.3 firstThey will skip the jump to Android 4.3 and get the latest directly, but the older Sony phones from this year, such as the Xperia ZZL and ZR, are going to get Android 4.3 first, as scheduled by year-end, and then eventually receive the KitKat sweetness.

Sony already tweeted that it will have more news about the Android 4.3 and 4.4 updates this week, so it should be confirming soon whether this rumor about a direct jump to KitKat for the Z1 and Z Ultra will pan out.
