in Android, Firmware, Xperia T, Xperia V

Sony Mobile’s new handsets announced today – the Xperia T, Xperia V and Xperia J – will be released with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Sony also confirmed that at least the 4.6-inch Xperia T and 4.3-inch Xperia V will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean “following launch”. No specific timing was given, although Sony said that detailed timing will follow.

Sony didn’t give any indication as to when we will see the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update on the other 2011/2012 Xperia handsets released to date. Once we know the Jelly Bean timing for these newly announced handsets, it will give us something to aim at for the current handsets. We’ll bring you any new information on this if it comes out of the IFA tradeshow.

  • Bruno

    want them to be sold in Brazil

  • Hannad Ahmed

    I hope this september for my SXS.

  • Keon Fraites

    Xperia S jelly bean!!! >…< please :x

  • M Usman

    when will these handsets be released? that should be a good indication for handsets such as the Xperia S. and if their execution for the ICS is anything to go by then the Xperia S should get it first provided the 2011 Xperia Line is not included…

  • Adrian

    Hope Arc S gets JB.

  • InspectorGadget80

    Thank GOODNESS. I always check and make sure a phone will GET THE UPGRADE needed before I buy a phone. NEVER BUY A PHONE that will get a upgrade.

  • marwanx222

    Sony Xperia SL will be upgraded?

  • lovebmw

    And just like we saw with 2011, 2012 models, I bet, xperia s will get updated two month before the T does… Yeah Sony, we don’t easily forget. Arc S got ics before the xperia S.

    See now it’s going to bite you in the

  • Hope Xperia J get JB also

  • Brapicoco

    How about TX? will it see an update? I really prefer TX over T because T has chrome silver on the side which eventually fades making the phone ugly. plus T is too bulky..

  • Will Sony ever mention the Ion again? Geez…

  • m-cd

    Hey, what about the ICS on the Xperia T? The Walkman app is purple and the icons of the Gallery and Movies are different too.

  • Dylan

    I really hope (crossed fingers) that my Xperia Arc S will get Android 4.1 JellyBean.

  • I wait AOSP build for Xperia S :3

  • ice_wolf

    u already bought xperia SL? or u plan to buy that phone?

  • Nelson

    Xperia Ion,I said it. When update?

  • dereknobuyuki

    I’m running Sony’s Android 4.0.4 build for the GX
    and the walkman icon is blue, the movies icon is blue, the album icon is blue, sony music unlimited is blueish, sony blueish unlimited is blueish, but google movies is red…

    …very different from that image.

    Potentially, any prelaunch software is not final and is subject to changes.

  • Fauzi

    and how about Xperia U ICS update? sony takes long time for that-_-

  • Nelson

    Xperia Ion?

  • upgrade the entire 2012 xperia line that is released up to date to Jelly Bean before taking on Xperia T, V and J, Sony! You got alot of homework to do!! >:(

  • kenw

    With all these snapdragon based devices looks like end for the U8500 and sola, P,U anf Go phones

  • Nwodu Tochi

  • AsadMulla

    when we bought my XS we had to wait until all 2011 xperia’s got ics. so I hope our XS gets JB before 2012/2 xperia’s

  • .cj

    … kill yourself sony. xperia P?

  • meiermanni

    Wow, so specific on these 2 phones.
    Sounds like thumbs down for Xperia P and S JellyBean Upgrades

  • Jelly Bean for Acro S please ):

  • .cj

    … sony will never learn. A flagship has to have the newest android version at launch.
    … and i am still angry, that sony has killed the camera button of the V

  • Avery Navas

    Hate it when they do this …now my SXS it’s an obsolete piece of crap…. wasted money on a cellphone worth 6 months of use till it gets stomped by a newer device…

  • dereknobuyuki

    I’ve seen those bright icons in videos.
    I wonder if different devices or different carriers might get different icons?
    Or, could be interesting, this device is using a new version of those apps that they haven’t released yet and they went with new colours?
    Or, I doubt but I think would be the most interesting, if you could change the colour of those apps with the theme you choose. My Xperia device has a bunch of colour themes to choose from that change a bunch of colours in things like the settings, etc.

  • Konamy Ogawa

    Doidé? Não vi vantagem em relação ao Xperia S.

  • Amoris

    Hope LWW get Jelly bean.If xperia U and Xperia J gets Jelly bean ,then there is no way they can’t provide jelly bean in LWW.Hope some of xperia 2011(including LWW) phones will get updated along with xperia 202.

  • I hope have JB for xperia s soon

  • if Sony Proved that they could get jelly bean for both 2012 and 2011 devices they are about to be the best android company in the world! :D

  • Pretty sure Xperia ion and S will be getting jelly bean

  • all costomer in word
