Sony Releases Xperia S Binaries for AOSP Support

It’s been a couple of weeks since we shared news that the Sony Xperia S was being added to the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) by Technical Lead Jean-Baptiste Queru. This aims to deliver a Nexus-like, pure vanilla Android experience to the device. Now, Sony has released the proprietary binaries required to make it happen!

This is the first time since the introduction of the Nexus One that a non-Nexus phone receives the official AOSP treatment. We hope this is a sign of things to come, as this will make ROM development easier, without worries of filing petition after petition for the required proprietary binaries and other essentials. What’s more, the CyanogenMod team has also committed to submit software patches to AOSP development for the Xperia S in order to help development.

If you are developing ROMs or kernels for the Xperia S, you can grab these binaries from the SonyMobile website. To learn all the details on the development, check out the official blog post at SonyMobile.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Cameras

Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
