    Taking to its official Twitter account, Sony has revealed a new software update is rolling out for the Xperia Z Ultra and Z1. While the update is still packing Android 4.3, there are a few noticeable changes making their way to the firmware upgrade.

    First, there’s a new “White Balance” setting for the display, which lets you manually adjust your colors to find the perfect balance. If this setting sounds at all familiar, that’s because Sony first introduced it with the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. Some of the other changes for the update include improvements for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth music streaming and email.

    It’s important to note that the only way to get the update right now is through Sony’s PC Companion or the Mac Bridge. It’s also possible it will eventually make its way out as an OTA, but no word on when just yet.

    Anyone manage to get the update? If so, notice any other changes worth noting?
