Sony confirms Jellybean for 2012 Xperia smartphones

Sony has just announced the list of Xperia smartphones that will receive the much awaited Android 4.1 Jellybean update.

According to the Sony Xperia Product Blog, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is already on the way for the global versions of the following Xperia smartphones: Xperia S, Xperia acro S, Xperia ion, Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia J. Sony is yet to announce the rollout timing for the mentioned smartphones. As for the latest models such as the Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V – these smartphones will receive the update from mid-February of 2013.

Unfortunately, the 2011 Xperia smartphones are stuck with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich due to performance issues. “We were glad to provide the Android 4.0.4 upgrade for our 2011 Xperia portfolio across most markets and the majority of models but, after thorough evaluation, we have concluded they will not be upgraded beyond Ice Cream Sandwich.” However, Sony will still continue supporting the 2011 Xperia portfolio with firmware maintenance releases.

      Sayang naunang inilabas yun Xperia P, mas appropriate yun, mas maganda sana kung ang latest model eh P, V, and J para maging PLAGIARIST, Vic and Joey, oh dba mas bagay!

    Can’t believe Xperia J’s getting the JB update and we 2011 users are stuck on buggy ICS. :|

  4. Ken says:

    Too bad Tipo won’t get JB. To think that Galaxy Chat and Galaxy Music will have JB with almost the same specs and same price range.
