Updated Sony apps along with newer version of Jelly Bean
Sony Mobile has announced the rollout of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for four of its legacy 2012-2013 products, Xperia T, Xperia TX, Xperia V and Xperia SP. The update brings these older handsets up to speed with Sony's latest smartphones, with new Sony goodies in addition to the newer version of Jelly Bean.
Sony's app portfolio has been refreshed, including Messaging, Smart Connect, Small apps, Track ID and Sony Select. The update also brings new versions of Sony's media apps, including Walkman, Album and Movies, with Sony service integration, as well as downloadable themes similar to those now available for the Xperia Z series. And there's an updated Power Management hub, featuring new options for saving battery life.
As always, the rollout of Android 4.3 for these phones will be staged depending on region and carrier, so keep watch over the next couple of weeks if you're not seeing the update already.
