Xperia Z Ultra’s ‘X-Reality for mobile’ update coming in early September

in Xperia Z Ultra

XZUA number of Sony Xperia Z Ultra (C68XX) owners have been getting in touch with us recently about their new handsets and wondering why it is not running the same UI as seen on announcement day. Also, many have noticed that the ‘X-Reality for mobile’ option does not appear in their settings.

Well, before you get too concerned, those options are currently not available for the HSPA+ version of the handset. Sony will be providing an update during week commencing 9 September 2013 that will include ‘X-Reality for mobile’, just in time for the release of the LTE version of the handset. So don’t get too concerned and enjoy your handset, there are many people who have to wait six weeks before they get hands on!

    BS, if sony advertise on something then device must contain it, they was no need to hurry release in asia and instead they should have wait that everything is on point before launch…

  • Mario Bartolac

    Well… it’s good news kinda isn’t it? It might point out that X-reality is software based and it could get on Xperia Z/ZL/ZR handsets as well :)

    I have X-Reality for Mobile on my Sony Xperia Z Ultra running the SW Build: 14.1.B.1.479

  • XperiaBlog

    Is that an official update? The latest we’ve seen is the 471 update.

    9th September ?

    I guess, SONY want to show their new UI along with Honami before released it.

    yesterday i was checking Xperia Z prices in ebay and by coincidence Z ultra popped in the same page of research @ price tag of: $780 to $900 (from Asia) which reminded me of the same price Z reached right after its first release!

    I updated my device to 471 yesterday. I just checked again now to see and it said I have the latest version already so I don’t know how you have 479

  • Colby Leong

    Went to a BestBuy like yesterday, saw the X-Reality, Triliuminous TV from Sony, and cried that my Xperia Z will never have a screen like that. But at the same time hoped that all the other Sony flagships will have the same screen, or an even better on.

  • Ardalan Akbari
