Android 2.3.5 heading to Xperia devices in November?

SFR AndroidNow that the Android 2.3.4 firmware update has been released to the 2011 range of Sony Ericsson Xperia devices, the attention turns to future updates. The next release could come sooner than expected. French mobile phone company, SFR, released an Android firmware roadmap earlier on today showing that four Xperia handsets (Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia ray and Xperia mini pro) will receive the Android 2.3.5 update in November 2011.

Now this certainly would be a surprise as there’s been no official communication as to which Xperia update we’ll see next. Checking the PTCRB site shows that new Xperia arc firmware (4.0.2.A.0.42) was certified as recently as 7 October. This could be Android 2.3.5 firmware or updated Android 2.3.4 firmware that has yet to be released in most regions outside of the Nordics.

Thinking about it, Sony Ericsson has already said this v2.3.4 update won’t be released until the end of October/early November for the rest of the world. Could it be that Sony Ericsson are just moving straight to Android 2.3.5 instead? It’s all speculation for now, but we’ll come back to you when we have something concrete. See the roadmap below.

  • If you’d actually read the article you’d see THIS glaring statement in which they already acknowledged what you just said there:

    “Sony Ericsson has already said this v2.3.4 update won’t be released until the end of October/early November for the rest of the world. Could it be that Sony Ericsson are just moving straight to Android 2.3.5 instead?”

    Don’t just look at the pictures next time. Articles are for reading.

    Oh, come on… almost everyone is still with versione 2.3.3, do you think that your phone will be completely different with version 2.3.4 from the one you have now? Can’t you just wait for a month? Of course they start with a subset of countries, because they have to test the update and in case something goes wrong there will be only a limited number of phones that have been updated. In fact, they first made the 4.0.1 software which has been released only in nordic contries and then the 4.0.2 which will be released for everyone. Why nordic conutries first? Obvious: Ericsson is from Sweden.
    Get a Nexus phone, so you’ll have every new version of Android as soon as it comes out.

    I’m in Uganda (Africa) and my Arc S is running 2.3.4 and it HAS the xLoud feature. I wonder why you do not.

  • Jeffrey

    I got 2.3.4 for Xplay. Tons of bloatwares. And funny thing is, I uninstall some bloatwares which are able to uninstall. When I reboot, the bloatwares came back again. Haunted firmware update.
