Sony Mobile’s official Twitter account today tweeted that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Xperia P, go, S, SL and arco S are in the final stages of testing, and that the company will release more information next week.
Sony had initially promised to update its 2012 range of selected Xperia handsets to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean by early-April. What is appalling is that while Sony has managed to update some of its lower-end Xperia devices to Jelly Bean, its 2012 flagship handset – the Xperia S – is still running a bug ridden Android 4.0.4 firmware.
The official tweet from Sony is as follows -:
Just a quick update to say we hear you re: JB 4.1 for Xperia P & Go, (S, SL, acro S and ion). Work’s in v. final stage – more news next week
Since Sony has mentioned the name of the Xperia S, SL, acro S and ion in parenthesis, it might very well be possible that the updates for these phones won’t be available immediately.
While Sony is still struggling to update its 2012 flagship devices to Jelly Bean, Samsung not only updated its 2012 flagship – the Galaxy S3 – to Jelly Bean, but also updated its 2011 flagship – the Galaxy S2 – to Android 4.1.2.
