Sony Xperia M2It’s not like Sony to be all shy and quiet about its relentless fight against software outdatedness, but for some reason, Xperia M2’s KitKat rollout has got off to a particularly silent start. We’re guessing this mid-end fellow may find it a little trickier to shed the Jelly Bean skin, so although Sony did announce it was next in line after the E1, it didn’t come forward with an official message yet to point out Android 4.4 is live.

According to reports all around the web, it seems LTE-enabled versions are making the move to KK over-the-air in countries like France, Ireland, Israel, Russia, Singapore and Thailand. Not on the list? Fret not, you will be soon enough.

The same goes for users of the 3G-only model, and M2 Dual owners needn’t worry either. There’s plenty of smooth, tasty chocolate to go around. The 4.4.2 firmware, though technically not Android’s very newest build (4.4.4 is also upon us), is packed to the brim with performance optimizations, accessibility improvements, security enhancements and bug fixes.

Codenamed Project Svelte, the package you’re about to receive is hefty enough that it requires be pulled via Wi-Fi only, featuring among other specific tweaks a refreshed, white element-centric interface, immersive mode and wireless printing support. Don’t forget to perform a manual check for updates if an automatic prompt message is yet to pay you a visit, and fill up that battery beforehand. Ready, set, go.
