Sony Mobile has just confirmed what we already knew, a new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware build is heading to Xperia S (LT26i), Xperia SL (LT26ii) and Xperia acro S (LT26w) owners. The Xperia ion is conspicuously absent in that list.
Sony says that the ETA is in a few weeks time, which matches our news yesterday that a new firmware version was certified by the PTCRB. Firmware build 6.2.B.1.96 is expected to bring a number of bug fixes, confirmed by Sony’s tweet below. If all stays on track, this means the update should arrive by the end of this month or early September.
Confirming: new JB 4.1 firmware build incoming (eta few weeks) for Xperia S, SL, acro S – brings fixes & more. We'll flag w/ blog changelog
