Sony Backs Away From Claim That 2011 Models Won’t Receive Jelly Bean Update

The Sony Ericsson line of 2011 smartphones that were accidentally said on Facebook not to receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, still might receive the update. On the Sony Mobile Blog, Sony says they “are actively investigating Android OS upgrades for all devices, but in the meantime our Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for Xperia S and 2011 Xperia smartphones continues as planned.”

Hello everyone,

A quick note – during a Q&A session last week on our Sony Mobile GB Facebook page, a local spokesperson gave information out in error on our Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software development and rollout for 2011 Xperia smartphones.

We are actively investigating Android OS upgrades for all devices, but in the meantime, our Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for Xperia S and 2011 Xperia smartphones continues as planned.

As always, feel free to drop a question below and keep your eyes fixed on the blog, as we’ll be bringing you more on our Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for Xperia P and other 2012 Xperia smartphones over the next couple of weeks.

Ant.
