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.
