Xperia S Jelly Bean rollout commencing in late March?
Sony Xperia S (LT26i) owners are feeling quite unloved at the moment. The handset hasn’t received a firmware update since September last year, despite it being the (early) 2012 flagship device for Sony. We get many comments each day asking when can we expect to receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware update for the handset.
Well it looks like the Sony Mobile Germany team may have given us a clue. In a response to the same question on twitter, it responded “we will begin the rollout of Android 4.1 for the Xperia S in late March” (translated). This would be great news if true, but we’ll wait and see. Sony’s official communication on the matter is that Xperia S owners will receive it from April. At least there’s hope it may arrive early in that month rather than later.
