Sony Xperia T caught running early Jelly Bean build (video)

The Xperia T hasn’t been out a month and already users are clambering to get their hands on a taste of Jelly Bean. And rightfully so: as HTC, Samsung and even Motorola begin rolling out Jelly Bean to their flagship phones, Xperia T users must wait until at least February to see theirs.

A team over in Vietnam has its hands on an early build of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the Xperia T, and while it looks quite similar to its Ice Cream Sandwich counterpart, there are a couple of nice new additions to be seen. Sony has made some tweaks to its launcher and a couple system apps, and fleshed out sound quality features that will sure to appease the audiophiles in the room. Interestingly, the leaked software contains AT&T-specific apps, so it’s likely that the American carrier will be the first to receive the update next year.

This news comes on the leak that the FreeXperia team, the individuals behind CyanogenMOD10.1 for various Sony devices, has begun porting the Linux 3.4 kernel used in Android 4.1 to legacy 2011 Xperia devices.
