Xperia Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update to introduce new 3.4 kernel

The guys over at BesteProduct.nl managed to get some hands-on time with a prototype of the Sony Xperia E (C150X) recently, a handset that is due to launch in early 2013. They posted some hands-on video with the device and, with it, a first glimpse at Sony Mobile’s Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update.

Apart from some funky new wallpaper, we didn’t notice anything too different from current firmware apart from some menu changes. Interestingly a reveal of the ‘About’ screen shows that the Xperia E is running a new linux kernel (3.4). The latest kernel on the Xperia T (LT30p) is 3.0.8. Now we don’t know whether this new kernel will make it to all handsets, since the Xperia E is still a prototype, but it gives a good steer nonetheless. Check out the hands-on video below along with a shaky video recording sample from the Xperia E too.

    i love seeing Sony Mobile devices run the latest software updates. I’m still very happy with my ICS on my Xperia ion but it nice to see that despite everyone counting them out they still can do it :D

    4.1 isn’t the latest software. It was released back in June but I supposed for Sony users, it’s the latest software they can possibly get anytime soon. Well not anytime soon actually…probably end of February next year.

    In short the guy is saying. You get what you buy. And it will be in stores January-February.

    I thought previous article is saying that they will announce in “mid December about Jelly Bean updates for Xperia phones? Soon…

  • Achugokul
