Sony Xperia L and M are expected to receive the same Smart Social camera apps found on Xperia SP, T, TX and V running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. An XDA forum member paved the way to make AR effects, Motion Shot, Timeshift Burst, Motiongraph and more compatible with Xperia L and M.

Smart Social Camera on Xperia L and M

Sony unified almost everything on every Xperia device that runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean firmware and the latest Xperia home launcher. Unified features include Sony's Smart Social camera which enables users to download exclusive camera modes such as AR effect, Timeshift Burst, Motion Shot, Motiongraph and others.

XDA forum member xperiaz2 found a way to port the Smart Social camera for Xperia L and M regardless of the OS - Android 4.1 and Android 4.2 supported. Most of these camera modes were exclusive on the Xperia Z1 and have been made available to all Xperia devices running Android 4.3 via Google Play Store.

Here are the camera modes users will get from porting the Smart Social camera:

1. Social Live

2. Info-eye

3. Motion Shot

4. Motiongraph

5. AR effect or Artificial Reality

6. Wikitude Places

7. Background Defocus

8. V1 Sports

9. Timeshift Burst

10. Sony Select

Flashing these functions would require unlocking the boot loader, gaining root access and installing ClockworkMod custom recovery. After that, users can simply install the APK files from the source.

Official Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

Sony Mobile just released the official Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for Xperia L and may take some time before Android 4.3 goes out live. On the other hand, Vodafone Australia confirmed the testing phase of Android 4.3 for Xperia M single-SIM and dual-SIM variants.

The market might see some developments around March or April after the live seeding of Xperia SP, T, TX and V Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update.

For those who want to know the new features and changes on Android 4.3, here are some tweaks Sony Mobile based on Xperia SP smartphone.

- Android 4.3 goodies: Project Butter, Daydream and Lock screen Widgets

- Updated all exclusive Sony media apps: Album and Movies, WALKMAN
