SFR Posts Approved Android 4.3 Update Documentation For The Xperia M


French carrier SFR has posted the approved update documents for an upcoming OTA upgrade for its carrier-branded variant of Sony’s ultra-affordable low-end smartphone the Xperia M which was released back in June 2013. The paperwork reveals that the handset is set to receive the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update, in addition to a multitude of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.

For those unaware, the Xperia M is a pretty impressive entry-level handset, featuring a 4-inch FWVGA display, a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, an Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable up to 32GB via microSD), 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a VGA front-facing shooter and a compact 1,750 mAh battery.

The full changelog for the over-the-air update can be seen below:

  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • An updated, faster UI
  • Updated multimedia applications
  • Xperia Themes
  • Improved bookmark management in Chrome for Android

Sadly, neither Sony or SFR have announced a date for this rollout to begin, but we can assume that it’s pretty imminent, though, seeing as manufacturers usually post these documents on their websites just a day or two before carriers start pushing out the update.
