Sony has announced that it has started rolling out new Android 4.2 software updates for its Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra smartphones. These updates will be available for both smartphones depending on the market and telecom carrier; however unlocked units will probably be the first ones to get the update.
According to online reports, Xperia Z1 update is already live in various countries including Malaysia, and Netherlands. Some users from India are also reporting the update availability.
For Sony Xperia Z1
- Tweaked the camera algorithm for even better all-round performance
- Refined Sony’s Smart Social Camera platform, so Xperia Camera apps run more smoothly (particularly Burst Mode, Superior Auto, AR Effect and Sweep Panorama…)
For Sony Xperia Z Ultra
- Optimized touchscreen sensitivity, for both finger gestures and writing / sketching with pencils, metal pens and selected styluses
- Re-calibrated the display ever so slightly, to ensure viewing experiences remain bright & bold
