Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Sony Xperia S available now (in France)
As assumed yesterday, today Sony has started rolling-out an official Android Jelly Bean update for its Xperia S smartphone – a handset initially launched in early 2012 running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
For the moment, only Sony France has confirmed the update – which will be rolled-out in phases anyway. Most probably, other countries will follow in the near future. Also in the near future, Sony should be ready to provide a Jelly Bean update to another smartphone released last year, namely the Xperia Ion.
Update: unfortunately, Jelly Bean for the Xperia S is still not available. Sony Germany says the “confirmation” from Sony France was a mistake. But the update should arrive “this quarter.”
It remains to be seen if Sony wants to update the Xperia S and Ion to Jelly Bean 4.2, too. Beyond that, it’s unlikely that there will be any other updates.
Until now, the Japanese company has managed to bring Jelly Bean to lots of its 2012 smartphones. However, some will remain stuck on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich – including the Xperia U, Xperia Tipo, Xperia Sola, and Xperia Miro.
