SonyViet has posted a video of Xperia TL running Android OS 4.1 offering us an early sneak peek at what to expect from upcoming software update from Sony. The leaked video demonstrates a Sony UI with few new features such as – a new home screen launcher with new wallpapers, as well as new “Album” and “Movie” apps for photo and video content, Superior Auto mode on the camera and a new ClearAudio+ mode for better audio quality (features expected to ship in the upcoming Xperia V).
Check out the video that shows Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean running on the Xperia TL (LT30at). As evident in video, the performance of the device has been improved a lot making the interface smoother.
Perhaps this leaked 4.1 Jelly Bean firmware is not complete and does not offer Google Now. It is limited at 12Mpx camera instead of actual 13MP on Xperia T. Even the user interface seems unchanged from current ICS-based Xperia ROMs. Since the firmware is still in development, things may change before the final release, but it’s all shaping up nicely so far.
One of the thread at vnsony forums (via Xperiablog) has published screenshots of the international version of the Xperia T (LT30p) with firmware version 9.1.A.0.420, whilst another shows the AT&T version of the handset, the Xperia TL (LT30at), with build number 9.1.F.1.64.
As a quick refresher, users may not receive the first official Xperia Jelly Bean updates until late February 2013.
Sony is expected to launch a new 5-inch smartphone (rumored to be called the Xperia Z) at CES in Las Vegas in few weeks, and it’s likely to pack a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB of RAM, 1080p-resolution and similar software. So stay tuned!
