Sony launches Android 4.3 updates for Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Xperia Tablet Z
The time has finally come: Sony just revealed that four of its slightly older Android devices are being updated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean starting today, December 23. The devices are: Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z.
Sony mentions, however, that timing and availability of the update “may vary by market and carrier.” So not everyone gets to enjoy Android 4.3 starting today or the next few days, but the update will certainly come eventually.
In case you don’t know, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean brings a nicer graphical experience alongside Project Butter performance and UI optimization. The update also brings Sony’s Smart Social Camera to the four Xperias, plus many enhancements on other Sony-specific apps and services.
All four Sony devices that are receiving Android 4.3 Jelly Bean now will likely also get Android 4.4 KitKat. Sony didn’t say exactly when this will happen. But we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.
