Sony Announces Android 4.3 Update For Select Xperia Devices

Browse This Page

Sony Mobile officially confirmed the upcoming availability of the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system for some of its latest Xperia smartphones out there, including the Xperia Z and Xperia Z Ultra. 

A post on the company’s blog says it is “already getting stuck in” and is working to develop updates for the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia SP and Xperia Z Ultra.

Some older Xperia phones running Android 4.1 are still under examination. There’s a possibility that at least some of them will be updated straight to Android 4.3, but no names have been confirmed yet.

Sony, however, is not known for being quick with Android rollouts so customers will probably need to be patient once again. Back in December 2012, the company promised Android 4.2 updates for 10 of its 2012 Xperia range, and that process was only completed last month.

It admits that the Android 4.1 upgrade “process hasn’t been as succinct or as timely as you might’ve expected”, which leads us to believe that this may happen once again with the roll-out of the third Jelly Bean iteration.

With Android 4.3, many of the updates appear to be under the hood. Among the front-end changes is the addition of a Multi-User Restricted Profiles feature.

Sony posted a video of the Xperia Tablet Z already running the AOSP version of Android 4.3, as they previously did with 4.2.

    i’m looking for a good Android phone, which has a decent camera and a good screen..
    which one is more preferable , xperia sp or nexus 4 ?

  • andy roid

    Why dont you try the xperia T or wait for xperia sp to come down in price! Seriously adreno 305 in xperia L isnt as fast as the adreno 225 in xperia T! Might be worth waiting for SP as its price is falling rapidly and is now same price as xperia T – adreno 305 is ok-ish, adreno 225 very good (i get 59.8fps on nenamark 2 with my XT) but adreno 320 even better and will cope better with games like mc5, asphalt 8 and deadtrigger 2!
