Compared to its peers, Sony has been rather generous in bringing the latest Android OS update to yesteryear’s Xperia phones. But it looks like the dessert treat will stop at Ice Cream Sandwich for owners…
We know that the Xperia S alongside other recent Xperia models have been promised to get Android 4.1 at one point in the future. If you want some proof that Sony is still working hard to make the Jelly Bean dream comes true for its customers, check out these screenshots from the “leaked” JB firmware running on the Xperia S.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware for the Xperia S is an early build that has somehow made its way to the folks at XDA-developers. Apparently, there are still quite a few kinks that need to be ironed out in order for it to live up to its buttery smooth reputation.
Some added features that Xperia S owners can expect to see include one-touch screen mirroring, power management options, a new lockscreen, and loads more.
The new firmware isn't expected to be rolled out by Sony to the handset until April at the earliest. We're hoping it'll come much sooner. To make the wait more bearable, you have the screenshots to look at and enjoy.
