Sony Xperia Smartphones To Receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update In Q1 2013
At the middle of October, Sony has officially unveiled the first details regarding its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update plans for its smartphones line-up. The Japan-based company has updated the initial announcement today, adding more terminals to the list and unveiling the time frame where the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is expected to roll out.
As Sony mentioned since October, the first terminals that will be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are Sony Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V, smartphones that will receive the software update sometime in February or March 2013.
After the first wave of Xperia smartphones gets updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, models like Xperia J, Xperia P and Xperia go will be next in line, which will be receiving the firmware update in late March. As of April 2012, the Jelly Bean update program will continue with the users of the Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia ion and Xperia Acro S.
Besides the new Google code, the aforementioned terminals will also receive a set of new features, but the Japanese company decided not to unveil any details about the software goodies.
As you probably knew, Sony Xperia U, Xperia miro, Xperia tipo and Xpiera sol will not be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the company saying that their hardware resources are not good enough to provide a satisfying experience. Just like it happened to the Xperia models launched in 2011, the road of four aforementioned smartphones will stop as high as Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
