Xperia Z Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean features showcased on video

Xperia Z

Although Sony has yet to officially release the upcoming Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the water-resistant Xperia Z, some people have already installed an unofficial leaked version (which we covered in an earlier report) on their own phones. As a result, they are now able to run the latest available version of the Android software on their handsets.

If you’re wondering exactly what the software update does, there are a couple of new YouTube videos that can show you. A 15-minute video titled, “Sony XPERIA Z with official leak Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean review” is what you want to watch to know all the most important elements of the software update. There’s also a 4-minute video titled, “Xperia Z 4.2.2 firmware leaked!” that shows the phone’s lockscreen widgets in action, and that’s worth viewing as well.

We still don’t know when Sony plans to officially deliver the software update to Xperia Z users. But judging by the appearance of this unofficial leaked version, we believe the official release is just around the corner. Go and watch these video demonstrations of the software update’s features for now to tide yourself over.

    shocking that this phone has still no update, im well pleased i had problems with mine coz i sent it back and got htc one. but i was told that sony will have the update really quick, but instead there are just trying to make more new phones rather than keeping there word to there loyal customers. but all these big companys are just the same. how is the sony z owners thinking ?

            I’m loving the comments on here lol, my first day with the Xperia z is so far so good. Reason why I didn’t go with HTC is all there phones in the past has suffered from bad battery drain.

      this phone had an update, a rather good update!
      and when you are currently getting all the features in current version, so you just need 4.2 for the sake of seeing it in your ‘about phone’ screen?
      I’m a Z owner, and I’m happy!

    Sad that only ONE high end android phone comes with the latest android out of the box, and STILL the One, SxZ don’t have 4.2.2 ha!!

    • milksop held

      Ummm nexus 4?

      • lil bit

        That is not really a high end device, not even LTE, low storage, pathetic camera, horrible video recording, low res display.

        Lets all agree that Galaxy S3, HOX, Optimus G, Xperia T and Nexus 4 are now midrange.

        • The LG Optimus G is ANYTHING but mid range. In my opinion it’s one of the most powerful phones out there. Definitely the smoothest phone I have ever used.
