Do you think/heard if the 4.2 update will have the "Photosphere" in the camera feature or something similar ?

It's entirely dependent on the hardware - I don't know if the XZ has a 360 degree tilt sensor.

Done any need a tilt senor, its coming on the S3 and that doesn't have a tilt. It's software based not hardware.

If any device have a 360 degree tilt sensor, that means it can take the photo in one shot. I think it's in the software not the hardware.

I was under the impression that photosphere is a nexus only feature, even cm10.1 doesn't include it.

Re: [Q] Photosphere to the 4.2 update
Photosphere requires a gyroscope which almost all phones since 2 years have. So it will work. The reason it's not included in CM and only in Nexus devices is because it's not open source i.e. a part of AOSP. It's a closed source app called GoogleGallery.apk because it uses Google's proprietary street view technology. That said, just putting the GoogleGallery.apk and it's related lib files in a CM ROM, it'll work. So even if it is not included Xperia Z (I think I won't be), it should be possible to copy/flash the GoogleGallery.apk and related libs into the system partition and have it work.
