Leaked screenshots show Android 4.1 for Sony Xperia S
Before the Sony Xperia Z was a gleam in the eye of Sony designers, there was the Sony Xperia S. No, this device didn't quite capture the same buzz at CES 2012 that the Sony Xperia Z did in Las Vegas this year, but with that unique translucent stripe near the bottom tenth of the phone, the design was rather mesmerizing. The Sony Xperia S was voted our readers' favorite Android phone from 2012 CES and second overall to the Windows Phone powered Nokia Lumia 900. The Xperia S originally launched with Android 2.3.5 but has subsequently been updated to run Android 4.0.4. And Sony is not stopping there.

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?
