Sony ends support for the Xperia E and E dual

in Firmware, Xperia E

Xperia E EOLThe Xperia E and Xperia E dual have reached their end-of-life (EOL) when it comes to software updates, as Sony has confirmed that support for both handsets have ended. As befits an entry-level model, the phone saw very few updates over the life of the handset.

The phone launched with Android Ice Cream Sandwich and was updated to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, where it remained. The last update for both phones was released in July 2014, with the Xperia E updated to build 11.3.A.2.33 and the Xperia E dual to build 11.3.A.3.1.

Thanks Charbel!

  • i think it’s time for phones to be like pcs where you have one operating system at first then you can install sonys skin ontop

    basically a brand new phone starts off as pure android then you can download sonys android if you prefer

    this allows all phones to be udateable

    Sooo Sony has officially ended support for all the 2012 phones and now starts new round with 2013s. Next one expected to reach end-of-life -> Xperia L. I think it will happen sometimes before end of 2014.

  • Maxnoob

    Time for Cyanogenmod.

  • shanefalco

    xperia e1 also seen that will probably remain stationary at kitkat ;)

    With 512MB RAM, 4GB storage and only 320 x 480 pixels @ 3.5 inches, I didn’t expect much. Nor will the buyers of these low end phones.

  • Constantine

    Almost all of them don’t care about firmware version, and don’t check it at all. One of these is my brother :)

  • Jaywalker

    It would be that hard to have a version by the specs (RAM storage CPU) ? Phones with 1GB RAM to have a version, 1.5 another, 2.2 another and so on and to update just a few versions no matter how many phones do they make. And when they update a version to include one big series. The design is the same why not the updates? So next year also Z and the others will be through. And it would be also better to allow users to download which version they want.

    Technically the Xperia L will reach EoL during November, a month after the Xperia SP. But due to the fact it cannot be upgraded above 4.2.2 it seems like what you say looks to be most likely.

    Now where’s my KitKat for my Xperia SP? :@

  • aXedL

    Why doesn’t the Xperia L have a version overview? We’re hopeless. :(

  • Well, however things might not become like that. It is more to a, money, cause.

    Yes they are changable… ther are thousands of themes that can sort that out

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia

    Reason (Sony): The Xperia E1 does not have sufficient RAM to run the Android L platform. As a result we cannot guarantee a good user experience so we cannot upgrade the android version. However we may continue to provide maintenance updates and performance enhancements.

    I’m so glad I give up Sony’s phones when I bought the Xperia U. I’m a proud Moto G owner.

    Sony never more…

    but wait, I want so bad Playstation 4. oWwww

    At least, it is from another department.

    What I’m not happy about with the E/E dual is that they released ONE release of a “beta” Firefox OS for it, but never did anything else with it after – and the beta release doesn’t have the phone functions so you can’t really use it. I actually got an E dual because I was curious about FireFox OS but they never followed up…

  • Little Seal

    At least I was expecting some improvements, I didn’t buy the Xperia E1 Dual to play Asphalt8 or MC5, but, anyway, that’s the way Sony do right? It was worse when I remember the Xperia PLAY forever GB 2.3.4
