The first official Xperia Jelly Bean updates aren't expected until late February, but a leaked video has given us an early sneak peek at what to expect from upcoming Android 4.1-based firmwares from Sony. Vietnamese Sony community SonyViet has published a video of pre-release Xperia TL software in action, demonstrating a familiar Sony UI with some brand new features.
Among these is a new home screen launcher with new wallpapers, as well as new "Album" and "Movie" apps for photo and video content. There's also a new ClearAudio+ option for improving audio quality, a feature expected to ship in the upcoming Xperia V. Despite these new additions, the overall look and feel of the UI seems mostly unchanged from current ICS-based Xperia ROMs.
Sony is expected to show off a new 5-inch, 1080p-resolution handset at CES in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks, and it's likely that similar software will be running on this new handset. The device, rumored to be called the Xperia Z, is said to pack a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU and 2GB of RAM.
