Sony Xperia Z UltraJust hours after Google announced Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Sony Mobile outlined its plans to upgrade a number of its devices to the latest version of Android.

Yesterday you probably saw Google announce the next version of Jelly Bean (Android 4.3) – we’re already getting stuck in and can confirm we’ll make 4.3 available for: Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia SP and Xperia Z Ultra…

Timing details were not announced but we’ll bring you this information as soon as we have it.

Sony also plans to upgrade a number of other devices directly from Android 4.1 to 4.3. No specifics were announced as to what devices and when but Sony promised to “share more info / deets / timings when we can.”

In the meantime, Sony is already rolling out Android 4.2 upgrades for the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL (including here in Canada for the latter). It will also begin to push out the upgrades to the Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z in early August.
