Sony Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra receive Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

Sony is now rolling out the  update for the the Sony Xperia Z1 and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Even though we initially suspected that Sony may skip Android 4.3 for both handsets in favor of jumping directly Android 4.4 KitKat, it looks like the company will be taking one step at a time.

Sony says that not only does it include Android Jelly Bean's Project Butter, but also new Timescape functions, and overall performance tweaks. Here's the changelog you can expect:
  • Google’s Android 4.3; Jelly Bean as standard – bringing Project Butter performance & UI optimisation and a smoother graphical experience
  • Launched with Xperia Z1, we’re now bringing Sony’s Smart Social Camera to Xperia Z Ultra – our signature camera experience, that lets you download, access and enjoy “Xperia camera apps” directly from within the viewfinder
  • We’re also uplifting Sony’s entire native app portfolio to the latest versions – bringing tweaked / improved / current experiences for (to name but a few): Messaging, MyXperia, Smart Connect, Small apps, TrackID, Sony Select and…
  • Sony’s Media apps: WALKMAN, Album and Movies, with Sony Entertainment Network cloud service integration - a more converged and full Sony entertainment experience – Sony Entertainment Network & PlayMemories integration with a more intuitive UI, offering seamless access to both local and cloud content
  • The launch of our unique custom interface experience: “Xperia Themes”, with downloadable UI packs from Sony Select – more on this soon…
