Sony has just pushed a blog post detailing what new changes can be expected in the latest firmware update for the Xperia Z1, which we reported on earlier. It also says that this “maintenance release” is being released to the Xperia Z Ultra as well. We don’t know which firmware build this relates to, so please get in touch if you’ve received a new update from the current Xperia Z Ultra build (14.1.B.1.532).
Anyway, changes across both handsets include performance/stability tweaks, a recalibration of the display, economised power consumption and a streamlined Exchange connection. The Xperia Z1 has additional changes relating to the camera. This includes a tweaked camera algorithm and refined Smart Social Camera, to ensure the Xperia camera apps run smoothly. The Xperia Z Ultra has optimized touchscreen sensitivity for both finger gestures and writing with pens/styluses.
