Sony Xperia T, TX and V to Receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Upgrade in 2013

By Gizbot Bureau

    Sony Mobile has revealed the tentative schedule for the upgrading of some Xperia smartphones launched in 2012, to Android Jelly Bean 4.1. Initially, it was believed that it would roll out the update for all the 2012-launched phones.

    The report seems to disappoint users of Xperia U, Tipo, Sola and Miro as these phones will continue to stick to Android 4.0 with no upgrade whatsoever.

    The Jelly Bean upgrade will first be available for Xperia V, T and TX which will be rolled out globally sometime in February or March 2013. Following these phones, Xperia J, P and Go would get the upgrades sometime by the end of March, 2013.

    The last phones in the series to get a Jelly Bean upgrade will be Xperia S, SL, ion and acro S which will get it in a couple of weeks following the upgrade of Xperia J, P and Go. No specific time schedule has been given for the upgrade of these phones.

    The official blog of Sony Mobile stated that the company is excited about rolling out Xperia Jelly Bean which will have interesting features and functionality. The company is likely to provide more information about the same in New Year.

    Even though it has been confirmed earlier that the 2011 Xperia phones would not get the Jelly Bean upgrade, the exclusion of certain 2012-launched phones has come as a surprise. It is disappointing that these smartphones which offer a good Android experience has been excluded and has come as a blow for U, Miro, Sola and Tipo users.
