Sony launched a few software changes on the Xperia Z with the updated firmware version 10.1.1.A.1.253. This new edition hasn't made an appearance on our in-office model yet, but says that the following changes should come into effect very shortly:

  • There will be an option to disable the notification light (along with a few other things).
  • The soft keys and navigation bar will be changed from gray to black.
  • The Xperia Launcher should now run smoother, with less delay.
  • When in stamina mode, LED notifications will also be shown.
  • A tool to calibrate the white balance display
  • The camera should start up faster.
  • LED will pulse instead of blink.
  • Performance improvements
