Sony confirms Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Xperia T, Xperia S and most other 2012 Xperias, coming 2013.

Sony has confirmed via its product blog that the majority of its 2012 Xperia line-up will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The first updates will begin rolling out in Q1 2013.

The first to get the upgrade will be the Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V, with Sony approximating a rollout beginning ‘mid Q1 2013’.

The other handsets that will be upgraded to Jelly Bean are: Xperia S, Xperia acro S, Xperia ion, Xperia go and Xperia J. A timeframe has not yet been provided, but given the updates for the T and other devices is scheduled for mid-Q1, a reasonable expectation for the other devices would be early to mid Q2.

Sony has also confirmed that its 2011 range will not be updated to Jelly Bean:

We were glad to provide the Android 4.0.4 upgrade for our 2011 Xperia portfolio across most markets and the majority of models but, after thorough evaluation, we have concluded they will not be upgraded beyond Ice Cream Sandwich.

Beyond Ice Cream Sandwich we would not able to guarantee owners of these smartphones the user experience you expect and we demand. We will however, continue to support all these products with firmware maintenance releases.

We’ll let you know as soon as any of the Jelly Bean updates are rolling out.
