Sony Xperia Z, one of the best high-end smartphones in the market, is in for a software update. While the operating system will remain the same – Android 4.1.2 – the device will receive a new firmware update for performance enhancements. The update is for the firmware version 10.1.1.A.1.253.
Among the key improvements, the update will improve performance, enhance white balance display calibration, and include an option to disable notification light. With re-calibrated screen colors cum white balance settings, the camera quality is likely to undergo a major improvement. The navigation bar background will be black instead of grey.
Sony Xperia Z was released only a short while ago, leaving many wondering why Sony released an update within a short span of time. The early roll out of an update is meant to address issues reported in the handset. Users have complained that the smartphone breaks down suddenly, i.e., it switches off automatically without warning. The device also had some issues related to security, LED and stability. The new update is said to be fixing these bugs effectively.
Sony recently released Xperia Z as its high-end flagship smartphone with impressive features – 5-inch full HD capacitive screen, mobile Bravia engine, 1.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 processor, 13 MP rear camera, 2.2 MP front camera, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage with microSD for additional storage. It is touted for its dust and water resistant features.
At present, the update is not offered across all countries, but is probably under a quick rollout. The update is currently available for Sony Xperia Z C6603, the 4G LTE version of Xperia Z. Sony is expected to roll out the update to the 3G version soon. The update can be availed through Sony Companion PC synchronization app.
