ST-Ericsson’s NovaThor U8500 chipset powers four of Sony Mobile’s 2012 Xperia line-up: the Xperia P, Xperia U, Xperia go and Xperia sola. Whilst only the Sony Xperia P has so far received the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update, it should be available for the other handsets in the not too distant future.

Moving beyond ICS, ST-Ericsson recently published a video showing that it now has Android 4.1 Jelly Bean running on the NovaThor U8500 reference platform. Sony Mobile has still yet to confirm which phones Android Jelly Bean will be coming to, but if you want to see how well it performs on the NovaThor chipset then check out the video below.
