Sony has announced a firmware update for the Xperia Z2

Sony has just announced the release of the firmware update for the Xperia Z2. The new version number is 17.1.2.A.0.314, and despite the fact that the Xperia z” was already launched running Android 4.4, this is an update that improves a few aspects of it.

According to Sony’s announcement, the new firmware update brings the next changes compared with the previous version:

Enhanced voice call quality
Improved touch function and performance
Charging improved when battery is low
Overall performance and stability improved
And all of our latest bug fixes and improvements


The update will reach the different countries at different times, so it will take some time to arrive to some regions. It also depends on the carrier, so there isn’t any official data for the update to be ready for your device. Just check it and, eventually, it will appear.

If you are not sure about which software version do you currently have, you can find it in the Settings menu, under “About Phone” option. There, you can acces to Build number / version and check if you already have the latest on running.

The Xperia Z2 was presented at the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona. The device keeps the name and design of its predecessor, the Xperia Z1. The external style is very similar, but the interior has been fully improved and the new version features a larger screen while maintaining the same dimensions that the previous model. The 5.2-inch screen has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, and the rest of the specifications were rather impressive: it runs a quad-core Snapdragon processor 801 at 2.3 GHz, 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, expandable via microSD card and a 3200 mAh battery.
