When Google’s Android boss Sunder Pichai announced the launch of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean last month, Sony was the first company to announce the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update to its Xperia smartphones. While we are still looking forward to hear the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update roll out for Xperia smartphones, a new report has been emerged claiming that the company is scheduled to provide a firmware update to its Xperia S and Xpeia SL smartphones in coming days.
According to the Xperia Blog, the company has officially confirmed that the update will be released with 6.2.B.1.XX build number, but has not given an ETA (estimated time of arrival). A screenshot of firmware build 6.2.B.1.96 has been leaked for the Xperia SL, showing the handset with 3.4 kernel, by bbs.gfan forum. However, the new build, 6.20B.1.96, continues to be based on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
As per the blog, the firmware update for Xperia S and Xperia SL is expected to fix the full-HD (1080p) video recording bug, the volume up bug as well as some other bugs. The site also claims that after the update, long pressing the home button would take the user to Google Now. It speculates that the update might be out by the end of the month.
