Sony is now rolling out Android 4.3 Jelly Bean updates to another group of select Xperia devices, just one week after landing on the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra. The Android 4.3 OS update brings overall system enhancements to the devices along with a new Sony UI for a new look and feel to the home screen.

Sony announced Monday (Dec. 23), that the over-the-air (OTA) Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS update is now being rolled out to the following list of Sony devices: Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR and the Xperia Tablet Z. "Google’s Android 4.3; Jelly Bean as standard – bringing Project Butter performance & UI optimization and a smoother graphical experience," Sony said on its official blog.

The new software update adds Sony’s Smart Social Camera, updates all of Sony's native apps and updates the power management app, Battery STAMINA Mode.

The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build number 4.3 10.4.B.0.569 update is slowly being pushed to devices so not all are expected to receive the software right away. This is not uncommon for major Android OS system updates like this one, expected to hit Xperia Z series devices throughout various regions.
