Android 4.3 Jelly Bean has been around for quite some time now, in fact it has already been succeeded. A few weeks back Google released Android 4.4 KitKat, and while a number of devices have already been updated to the latest firmware, it will still take a lot of time for a wide variety of devices to be bumped up to KitKat. Sony had promised to release the Jelly Bean update for a number of its Xperia devices, and today it has finally come through. The Android 4.3 update for Sony Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR and the Xperia Tablet Z has been released today.
Included in the update is a smoother graphical experience and user interface optimization, as well as the Sony Smart Social Camera experience that lets users download and use “Xperia camera apps” from within the viewfinder itself. Sony has also tweaked all of its native apps in this update, which brings updated versions of the Messaging, MyXperia, TrackID, Sony Select and other native applications. Battery STAMINA mode is onboard as well, its an updated version of Sony’s power management app which has a refreshed user interface and more options for getting more out of the devices’ battery. Even though Sony has officially announced the release of the Android 4.3 update for these devices, it might take a while before the update becomes available for various markets and carriers.
