Sony Starts Rolling Out Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra

Sony today starts rolling out Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system for its Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra smartphones. Although Android KitKat is the latest version of operating system released recently, but some devices are still just getting updated with previous version of Android OS. And these two Sony smartphones are also included in the list of such devices.

Sony has announced this morning that they have been working to blend their "Sony Xperia software with Google’s Jelly Bean release to create some cool user experiences." It means that there will be some performance tweaks and customization. 

Sony states in official blog  (via TNW ), "Google’s Android 4.3; Jelly Bean as standard – bringing Project Butter performance & UI optimisation and a smoother graphical experience." 

Sony brings its Smart Social Camera to Xperia Z Ultra now that was launched originally with Xperia Z1. Sony also updated its entire native app portfolio to the latest versions. Sony tweaks its Messaging, MyXperia, Smart Connect, Small apps, TrackID, Sony Select and Media apps (WALKMAN, Album and Movies) to bring improved and current experiences. 

Sony has also launched its unique custom interface experience “Xperia Themes” with downloadable UI packs from Sony Select. Sony also brings the latest Android security enhancements with its “Xperia in Business” mobile enterprise solution.

The company has not given any specific time frame for this roll out as it will vary by carrier and region. But this roll out starts today and the company also promises to bring Android 4.3 Jelly Bean rollout for the remaining Sony Xperia products soon.

There was a time when Apple was the undisputed king of mobile. Since the release of the first iPhone in a barnstorming speech by Steve Jobs, the company went from strength to strength, dropping better models every year, and absolutely dominating the high-end mobile market. Apple sold out of the launch shipments of the brand-new iPhone 5s in under two days, and sales of the iPhone have maintained Apple's profits despite a recent drop in iPad sales. But since Steve ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
