Android KitKat 4.4 update now reaching Sony Xperia M2 smartphones

Sony has now started offering Android 4.4 KitKat for its Xperia M2 smartphone, aligning with the practice of other companies which are granting the update to their mid-range devices as well. Not all versions of the handset have started getting the software, but this still marks the beginning of the rollout, meaning it should reach other variants in the coming weeks.

The Xperia blog tells us that the update is currently reaching the D2303 LTE model in France, Israel, Ireland, Russia, Singapore and Thailand. Despite this, neither the D2305 and D2306 versions, nor the Dual SIM models are receiving the Android 4.4 KitKat build.
