Looks like Sony Mobile is rescheduling plans for the Sony Xperia V (LT25i). Sony Mobile France this morning confirmed that the handset that was originally scheduled to arrive by the end of the year for €549 with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, is now planned to arrive in late January 2013 with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.
What we don’t know at this stage is whether this revised timing applies to all SKUs of the Xperia V (LT25i) or whether some regions will still get the handset in 2012, but with ICS. The Japanese version of the Xperia V has already gone on sale at AU by KDDI (Xperia VL, SOL21) and is planned to be released next week at NTT DoCoMo (Xperia AX, SO-01E). We’ll report back when we have further news on the international version.
[UPDATE PLANNING]Le Xperia™ V, initialement prévu en fin d’année sous ICS à 549€ sera disponible fin janvier 2013 sous JB à 529€.
