Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to offer enhanced performance, along with new and upgraded features.

Sony’s Xperia range of smartphones are set to benefit from Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, which will offer users optimised performance and a host of new and upgraded features and applications.

At present, Sony Mobile is rolling out the Jelly Bean update to the Xperia T and Xperia V smartphones, while the Xperia TX is scheduled to be upgraded some time in March.

The update is designed to deliver more intuitive versions of Sony media apps, such as Walkman, Album and Movies, which will boast a new and improved library system. This will allow users to peruse their music, photos and videos in once single location.

Sony stated: "As soon as the Jelly Bean software is available for your device, you'll receive a notification in your phone," Sony states. "In most cases you'll have the option to download and update over-the-air, but in some instances the software package may only be accessible via PC Companion or Bridge for Mac."
