Leaked screenshots show Android 4.1 for Sony Xperia S
The Sony Xperia S is expected to be updated to Android 4.1 no earlier than April, based on information that Sony released last month. The updated OS build will start with 6.2.X.X.XX and have a new 3.4 kernel, compared to the current 3.08 kernel. Of course, there will be new features for the user of the device including those seen on newer Sony handsets like Power Management, Find My Xperia and Screen Mirroring. And there is the usual bag full o' Google 4.1 goodies like Project Butter and Google Now with the latter updating you with information you need to know, when you need to know it.
Down below, we have some screenshots for you to take a look at, which were culled from an Android 4.1.2 test build for the Sony Xperia S. You like?

I prefer the swipe up and down to unlock screens like on Windows Phones. Really don't like the one on the S3.. and iPhone as well.

I find it funny when HTC launched Jellybean for the One X some months ago everyone was like "OMG, so late!! HTC SUCKS!" But now Sony is even latter and everything is alright.

"OMG, so late!! HTC SUCKS!"
Well I guess that is the opinions of HTC owners.
As for Xperia owners, yes, we can sometimes "hate" Sony for being late but at least they try to bring the latest OS.

Nah, mostly Samsung fanboys are the ones that bash HTC.

Sony is bringing updates late, but with NO bugs.
so that the update is perfect

Thats because HTC promised Jelly bean, the xperia s was considered a dead device and nobody expected an update.

I agree Sony is late, but they always compensate it by bringing sumthin beautiful in their UI
