Sony Mobile today announced that it would start rolling out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Xperia P, go and E dual from this week. The roll out is being done is phased stages, so it might not be available immediately in your country.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update brings in addition to all the Google enhancements like Google Now, enhanced speech-to-text and notification bar, several new additions from Sony including an updated suite of Media applications. Sony has included a new Battery Stamina mode as seen on the Xperia Z. When enabled, this mode will automatically disable mobile data when the screen of the device is turned off to preserve battery life.
Other changes include an enhanced app drawer/launcher and Camera app and minor UI updates.
While Xperia P and E dual users will be able to update their phone to Jelly Bean over-the-air, Xperia go users will need to use Sony’s PC Companion software to install the update on their phone. They will only receive a notification on their phone when the update is available in their region.
