Sony Xperia S Jelly Bean Update to bring New Lock Screen, Display Mirroring & More

The Sony Xperia Z comes with the latest version of the company’s UX on top of Android Jelly Bean, which includes fancy new things like a re-vamped lockscreen, new phone finder feature and various power management options as well, but there was no mention of whether these features would come on down to Sony’s previous Xperia devices.

Thanks to a leaked Jelly Bean ROM for the Xperia S that popped up on XDA, we know know that display mirroring, “Find my Xperia” and the clever new lockscreen and ‘extended standby mode’ for power saving will be coming to the 2012 Sony flagship phone. The Linux kernel has also gotten a slight bump from 3.08 to 3.4 as well.

So basically that means Xperia S owners will be getting all the new software features of the Xperia Z, which I’d assume also applies to the Xperia T which was launched recently. Coming sometime in April, folks.
