Sony today announced on the company’s official blog of the Android 4.1 roll-out to selected devices.
Starting this week, the Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia E dual should get updated to Android 4.1. The update will be delivered in different phases, meaning not every device will receive the update this week.
Additionally, Sony announced that the Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia ion and Xperia acro S Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates will begin rolling out at the end of May.
Changes the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will bring to the aforementioned Sonys:
Newer and even more intuitive versions of Sony Media apps: WALKMAN, Album and Movies: A set of slick, easy-on-the-eye libraries that let you access and share all your snaps, videos and tunes.
Make your battery last longer with Battery STAMINA Mode:Battery STAMINA Mode lets you get the most out of your battery when you need it. Fully customizable, your phone knows when the screen is off and shuts down the draining apps you don’t need, and then instantly starts them up again when the screen is back on.
Organize and search for your apps in a new quicker way: Application tray sorting is that bit breezier – just press and hold on any app – move, add it to your desktop or create a folder within the tray by dropping it on top of another. We’ve also added a new search function within the application tray that makes it easy to locate your favourite apps.
Personalize your phone even more with your additional panes: A revamped homescreen experience for handling widgets, apps and shortcuts… with up to 7 desktop panes, widgets that auto-resize and actionable notifications, you have complete flexibility to create the interface you want with a few simple touches.
Google Now brings you just the right information at just the right time even before you know you need it: Combining the power of Google search and user profiling, Google Now helps you accomplish daily tasks more efficiently. You can learn more about Google Now here.
Those with a Sony Xperia go will have to use Sony’s PC Companion or Bridge for Mac software in order to update. Xperia P and Xperia E owners can do an easier over-the-air update.
