Last week, Sony’s PR commented on a question regarding the Jelly Bean update for its 2011 Xperia devices saying that the handsets won’t be getting the update. Thankfully, Sony has provided a quick update about the Jelly Bean update for its Xperia 2011 devices on its blog today. The company stated that the “local spokesperson gave information in error on our Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software development and rollout for 2011 Xperia smartphones.”
However, this does not mean that the handsets will be getting Jelly Bean. Sony is still investigating whether its 2011 Xperia devices are capable of running Jelly Bean or not. Here is the full official statement from Sony -:
A quick note – during a Q&A session last week on our Sony Mobile GB Facebook page, a local spokesperson gave information out in error on our Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software development and rollout for 2011 Xperia smartphones.
We are actively investigating Android OS upgrades for all devices, but in the meantime, our Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for Xperia S and 2011 Xperia smartphones continues as planned.
As always, feel free to drop a question below and keep your eyes fixed on the blog, as we’ll be bringing you more on our Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for Xperia P and other 2012 Xperia smartphones over the next couple of weeks.
Xperia owners, don’t lose hope yet! Jelly Bean might just come to your handset.
