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.

Sony Xperia S Android Jelly Bean update May 24

We’ll keep an eye on this, and let you know when Sony is ready to finally push JB to the Xperia S.

    This Smartphone is amazing. I bought this one yesterday and all I can say about is that it is amazing. Sadly to know that Sony and their developers don’t give a single fuck about updating the OS of this powerful axe. DooMLoRD made a 99% functional version of Jelly Bean for Xperia S…I think that Sony should hire him, for real… -_-
