T-Mobile has today announced that its carrier-branded Xperia Z variant is the latest in a long line of Sony devices now receiving the largely requested Android 4.3 update. This upgrade brings a truckload of bug fixes and stability improvements, as well as an updated version of the Japanese company’s Walkman custom user interface.


The upcoming Sony Xperia Z2 has appeared for the second time in an early hands-on video. While the initial two-minute clip focused on the handset’s new user interface, this 12-minute extensive preview showcases other software features as well as its physical design, leaving little uncovered ahead of the handset’s unveiling.


Amazon is at present offering Sony’s former flagship smartphone of 2013, the Xperia Z, for $449.99 as part of its Boxing Day Deals Week — shaving a whopping $330 off of the online retailers usual price.


Today, Sony began pushing out the much-anticipated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean over-the-air update to all its unlocked Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z devices currently located in the United States. In addition to the upgraded build of the open-source operating system, this update also brings a newer version of Sony’s Xperia user interface, plus a multitude of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations, together with the Japanese company’s newly released “Social Camera” app.

It's much bigger than it looks.

Sony announced its upscaled Xperia Z variant, the Xperia Z Ultra, back in June, 2013, and in July the handset was available to purchase from several independent electronics retailers in the United Kingdom with a rather hefty price tag of £699. However, if you didn’t have the opportunity or wherewithal to pick one up at the time of release, it may be of interest for you to know that Very is currently offering the handset for the discounted price of £579 — that’s a pretty impressive £120 off the usual retail price.
