Xperia Z1 Compact with KitKat

Since Sony's Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact and Z Ultra started receiving their Android 4.4 KitKat updates a couple of weeks back, some Xperia owners have been reporting audio glitches on their devices. Specifically, a troublesome bug would sometimes cause notifications and calls to be played through the internal speaker rather than the external speaker, making them almost impossible to hear. But there's good news for those affected this morning, as Sony says a fix is on the way.

A statement given by local Sony reps to Italian site Quelli Che Telefonano reveals that a new update will be pushed out from next week with a solution for the audio issues. As always, the manufacturer says the exact rollout timing will depend on your region and carrier. If you've experienced audio bugs since updating your Xperia phone to KitKat, hit the comments and let us know.
