First look at Jelly Bean for the Sony Xperia S


A user over at XDA is giving us our first look at Android 4.1.2 for the Sony Xperia S. The long-in-development update moves the build number to 6.2.x.x.xx and a new 3.4 kernel. Aside from bumping the handset’s Android version up from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean, the new software also includes a selection of features found in newer Xperia phones.

The Xperia S will gain access to new power management options, screen mirroring, and Find My Xperia. The phone will also get a new lock screen experience. Add this on top of Jelly Bean’s standard enhancements such as Google Now and Project Butter.

There is no release date for the Android 4.1.2 update just yet — the build we see pictured here is still in testing. Even if all goes smoothly (and it sounds like there is still some work to be done), April might be the earliest we can expect Jelly Bean for the Xperia S.
