Sony has revealed that it has started the roll out of the not-quite latest version of the Android OS, version 4.3 Jelly Bean, to its current flagship Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra smartphones from today.
Whilst the Jelly Bean update has been launched by Sony, the company has warned that not all users can expect to be receiving the update in the next few weeks as the actual roll-out will depend on where you are based and the network version of your smartphone.
What the update does mean is that Sony has got the last Jelly Bean version working on the phones and released it to the public and networks so that work can begin on ensuring the software is suitable for the numerous region-specific versions of each phone around the world.
Jelly Bean 4.3 is an incremental version of the Android OS which carries very few changes from the 4.2.2 update that was last sent, but the update does add Sony’s new Smart Social Camera to the Xperia Z Ultra which adds a new layer of social interaction to the camera app.
Some more of Sony’s own apps will see improvements including Messaging, MyXperia, Smart Connect, TrackID, and Sony Select, too.
So the update should be arriving across all of the Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra handsets in the coming weeks via OTA.
