A new firmware build version for Sony Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet has been detected from a leaked screenshot via Xperia Z2 HSPA+ D6502 model. It runs the new 17.1.2.A.0.189 build version which may be released soon.

PTCRB's official certified firmware records revealed that the previous 17.1.1.A.0.402 build version is still the current available software and no updates yet of a new version for Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet. If Sony is now testing the said software, we may see an upcoming post from PTCRB soon.

According to XperiaBlog, 17.1.2.A.0.189 may contain necessary bug fixing patches for Sony Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet unless Sony Mobile has something under the sleeves to add for the two flagship devices.

Owners of Sony Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet can now update their devices to Android 4.4.2 KitKat running 17.1.1.A.0.402 build version. It has been released to deliver several improvements and enhancements to the performance and system apps.
