Sony has officially rolled out a minor firmware update for its flagship device, the Sony Xperia Z. This new update keeps the operating system on the device as Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean only, but brings some improvements and at the same time improves the camera quality. So even though the update is not a major one, it does bring along a lot of improvements, out of which the changes made to the camera performance are the most notable.
So after the update, your Android version will still be 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but you will definitely notice a lot of changes in your Sony Xperia Z. The update is available over the air (OTA) and has version number 10.1.1.A.1.253. If you are not able to update your device immediately or if you have not received the update notification as of now, then we suggest that you wait for some time and try again later. This is because the update is being rolled out gradually over the air and it might take some time before the update is available in your region.
This update will bring to you the display calibration tool using which consumers can adjust the white balance of the screen. In addition to this, the software keys and navigational bar are now black instead of gray and you can also disable the notification light. The new update will also improve the camera quality on the Sony Xperia Z. Sony has made some changes to the imaging algorithm due to which the camera samples look much better now.
Sources say that the update is live in France and should be available in other parts of the world soon. So if you own a Sony Xperia Z, then go ahead and check whether the update is available for your device. If yes, then download it and check out the changes. There is no official change log as of now, but as and when it is available, we will let you know.
