Sony has just announced on its official product blog that company’s Xperia T, Xperia TX, and Xperia V smartphones will get the Jelly Bean update in Q1, 2013. It also revealed that Xperia S, Xperia acro S, Xperia ion, Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia J will also be upgraded to Android 4.1, but failed to mention any time-frame.
Sony has also not stated anything about the Jelly Bean updates for Xperia miro, tipo, tipo dual, U, and sola phones. We expect at-least some of them should be getting Android 4.1, but nothing is official right now.
There is bad news for 2011 Xperia smartphones, as company has disclosed that 2011 Xperia models will not be getting Android software updates beyond Ice Cream Sandwich. Company will release firmware updates, but no Jelly Bean.
“Beyond Ice Cream Sandwich we would not able to guarantee owners of these smartphones the user experience you expect and we demand. We will however, continue to support all these products with firmware maintenance releases,” Sony stated on the official blog.
Company has promised to reveal more details on Jelly Bean update schedule in the coming weeks.
