Sony's latest flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z1, has yet to hit the United States, but worldwide Sony fans will be pleased to hear that the Japanese electronics manufacturer is in the midst of rolling out several updates for the phone.

A small 22MB patch for the Sony's Info Eye app has started rolling out in regions where the Xperia Z1 is available. The update brings the Info Eye app up to version 1.1.02 and doesn't include any major changes. Instead, it's most likely focussed on fixing bugs and improving security. Either way, as XperiaBlog noted, "It's good to see Sony work hard to update its firmware and apps."
That's not all, however. A screenshot has surfaced online showcasing an HSPA+ Xperia Z1 running firmware build 14.1.G.2.213. Sony has not officially confirmed the validity of the screenshot, but if it's true, it points to a huge update, since it will move away from 14.1.G.1 and onto 14.1.G.1.2. It seems that the Android version will still be Android 4.2.2, and the screenshot leakster claims that the main changes involve optimizing power consumption and system performance.
It's important to note that this firmware has not been spotted elsewhere, and that it may take quite some time before it arrives on Xperia Z1s. Sony just recently pushed out firmware update 14.1.G.1.53, and the Xperia Z1 is still set to release in more countries. More likely than not, Sony will aim to get its inventories out into the mainstream before locking down and rolling out some big updates.
Sony has not hinted at when Android 4.3 for the Xperia Z1 will roll out.
