Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update To Arrive On Certain Sony Xperia Models As Of February – March 2013

The Sony Xperia smartphones have been provided with another update on the progress for Android 4.1 Jelly Bea.

First of all, the Japanese company already confirmed that the first devices that are going to receive jelly Bean are the high-end handsets released in late 2012 meaning Xperiat, Xperia TX and Xperia V. The updates are set for February and March. After these three phones, Sony plans to upgrade others meaning Xperia J, Xperia P and Xperia Go at the end of March. In the following weeks, the company will provide an update for the rest of its products such as the XperiaS, Xperia SL, Xperia ion and Xperia acro S.

Nevertheless, the customers who own devices like the¬†Xperia U, Xperia miro, Xperia tipo, and Xperia sola will not be happy to hear that Sony Mobile doesn’t plan to upgrade the mentioned phones beyond Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This would not be so alarming if the phones were old, but the truth is that neither of them are older than nine months.

This case is not the first when it comes to Android software updates. 2012 is the year when Sony has shipped more mid-range handsets than ever. Still, the company seems unable to offer upgrade support for all of its products, even though they are few months old. Nevertheless, leastwise the more expensive smartphones seem to get Sony’s attention, though when it comes to US-specific handsets such as the AT&T Xperia Ion and Xperia TL, there is no official specification that they will be updated to Jelly Bean.

On the other hand, the company shows its excitement about some Xperia-specific functionality in its upcoming Jelly Bean software. This means that the lucky owners who will receive the upgrade will probably get some new features on their devices. A new high-end phone is expected to be unveiled by the Japanese company at CES in Las Vegas which will take place in January. This means that news about the next Jelly Bean-based smartphone of Sony will appear soon.
