Brief sneak peek at Xperia S Jelly Bean firmware

in Firmware, Xperia S

The Sony Xperia S (LT26i) is not due to receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware update until April at the earliest, but that hasn’t stopped a few screenshots leaking out courtesy of DooMLoRD from xda-developers. It looks like that the new build number will begin with 6.2.X.X.XX and a new 3.4 kernel will be used, compared to the current 3.08 kernel.

Xperia S owners will get a number of features seen on newer handsets such as Power management, Find My Xperia and Screen mirroring. The new lock screen will also be part of the update. Click through to see some photos (if you’re wondering about the text rendering in the images, DooMLoRD says there was an issue whilst testing).
