Sony Xperia S to finally get its Android Jelly Bean update?
While handsets like the Xperia P, Xperia E Dual and Xperia Go have already gotten their official Android Jelly Bean updates, the Xperia S (introduced as Sony’s flagship smartphone in early 2012 – running Android Gingerbread) has yet to receive the new version of the OS. Last we heard, Sony planned to bring Jelly Bean to the Xperia S before the end of May. And it looks like this may happen indeed.
Xperia Blog has discovered that a new firmware is listed over at the official Xperia S support page. The firmware build is 6.2.A.0.200, and is reportedly related to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The support page says the release date for this firmware is “2013-04-24.” However, since that’s April and no Xperia S is running the new software, it must be a typo, and the real date could be 2013-05-24. That’s tomorrow.
We’ll keep an eye on this, and let you know when Sony is ready to finally push JB to the Xperia S.
