Sony Xperia Z Gets A Software Update But Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Missing
The launch of Samsung Galaxy S4 brings along Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to non-Google devices. Many Sony smartphone owners will hope for their handsets to receive the Android 4.2 update and a recent software release to the Xperia Z would have increased their hopes even more, but unfortunately the software update still keeps the operating system as Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Sony launched the Xperia Z, which is one of the first handsets to be waterproof and dustproof. The handset packs in Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and will be updated to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean when an update is rolled out by the Japanese company. However, the wait for Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean seems a bit long for the Xperia Z as the company has released firmware number 10.1.1.A.1.253 the smartphone.
The new firmware version 10.1.1.A.1.253 is still based on Android 4.1.2, but it will bring a number of improvements. The software update is expected to bring performance enhancements and white balance display calibration. The software update also changes the color of soft keys and the navigation bar from gray to black.
The software update has started to roll out in France and Sony Xperia France has also confirmed the software update with a tweet.
Various rumors indicate that Google will soon launch a new operating system, which could either be the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or the much-awaited Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
Currently, only a handful of devices including the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10.1, runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. Many smartphone owners are in the hope that their devices get updated to the latest operating system.
