Sony Xperia Z Android 4.3 update to arrive on December 19 (tomorrow)?
Just a couple of days ago, Sony started rolling out official Android 4.3 Jelly Bean updates for its Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra, also promising that updates for other Xperias were “around the corner.” Well, one of the slightly older Sony smartphones, namely the Xperia Z, might get Android 4.3 as soon as tomorrow, December 19.

Yesterday, Sony listed December 19 as a release date for Android 4.3 on its Xperia Z support page. Since then, the page was changed, and now it’s only mentioning the 4.2 update that was rolled out back in September. Still, the Dec. 19 listing should give users hopes that their handset will get rid of Android 4.2.2 soon to make way for the newer 4.3.

(alongside the Z1, Z Ultra and others) will also get Android 4.4 KitKat. However, this will likely happen starting next year. We'll keep you updated on the matter - faster and more often than Sony is updating its handsets.

Launched back in February, the Xperia Z is still a very nice smartphone, and you can read our review of it to see why.

Update: December 19 has come and gone, sadly without the 4.3 JB update. Let's hope this will be rolled out soon, though.

Sony's 4.3 update is sweet the customizable themes are awesome you can change literally everything from the soft keys to the notifications in the status bar. I have seen an Oem 4.3 update as nice as sony's yet so i'll sell my htc one and keep my Z1.
