Back in October, Sony has confirmed that Android 4.1 will be made available on a wide range of its smartphones sometime in the future. The gadgets planned for a Jelly Bean update were the Xperia T, TX and V, as well as the Xperia J, P, GO, S and acro S.
We haven’t heard much from Sony ever since, but the good news is that the company has recently made a new announcement, giving us some tentative roll-out timeframes on all of the aforementioned gadgets.
Sony Xperia S, SL and Ion Jelly Bean (Android 4.1)
As we’ve reported before, the Xperia T, TX and V are expected to receive this highly-anticipated Android iteration sometime in February and March.
Next in line are the Sony Xperia P, J and Go which will make the jump to Jelly Bean starting with the end of March and lastly, Xperia S, SL and Ion owners will finally be able to take advantage of Android 4.1 in the “subsequent weeks” after the P, J and Go have been updated.
In other words, if you happen to rock an Xperia S, SL or Ion chances are that you’ll get the Jelly Bean update in April. Evidently, not every unit out there will receive Jelly Bean at the same time, so if your device is carrier-bound then you might have to wait some more. Besides, anything can happen in the next 4-5 months so, nothing is really set in stone.
That’s pretty much all there is to it at this point. It’s a long way to go so don’t hold your breath. Enjoy the holidays and try to enjoy using your device in its current state. We’ll bring you up to date as soon as the story develops, so stay tuned.
