Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update for Sony Xperia T Now Rolling Out
Sony has finally managed to optimize the first version of Android Jelly Bean for its Xperia T. In other words, if you use the phone, you should expect an official notification the following days. This new update will bring Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean along with its features such as Google Now, Project Butter and the new enhanced notification system. Also, you will have access to a plethora of applications developed by the Japanese company itself.
The first country that received the update is Holland, but it will be available in all the regions in the near future. The software update appeared on various sites a week after the Alpha version. Today, the final build of Android 4.1.2 JB was received by the Xperia T handsets.
It’s about time Sony released the update as many users complained about the fact that the Xperia T was launched running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, which was strange at the time because Jelly Bean was already available for a few months in September, when the device was launched. It seems that Sony experienced some trouble in optimizing the OS because it tool the company way to release the update. The current build of Android Jelly Bean Works on the 3.4.0 kernel.
There is no information about how much battery life will be drained by the update, but you will surely have to charge your smartphone more often than before. It is known that Jelly Bean uses more battery than Ice Cream Sandwich.
As said, the Xperia T is the first handset to be updated among the devices of the Xperia family. The next ones will be the Xperia TX and Xperia V, phones which will receive an update in the following weeks. After that, Sony will release an update for the rest of the Xperia phones.
