Sony Xperia 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update to be released soon
Some of the older Sony Xperia series smartphones are still stuck with older Android versions , where most of the other manufacturers have updated their high end phones to at least 4.1 Jelly Bean. Late updates have always been an issue with Sony smartphones, even back in Sony Ericsson days a lot of users were very frustrated with their very slow updates. However something is better than nothing and Sony has finally noticed that the users are getting impatient and have confirmed that their update for Xperia devices is at a very final stage and will hit via OVA and Sony PC Companion soon. So far the phones that are going to receive the Android 4.1.2 update are Xperia P, Xperia Acro S, Xperia S, Xperia GO, Xperia ION and Xperia SL. Rest of the details will be released next week along with an official changelog.
However this also means that this may just be the final update for the previous flagships, because unlike Samsung, Sony hardly takes care of their older flagships. And with the new line of Sony Xperia smartphones hitting stores soon, they will probably end up being forgotten. Sony is an amazing smartphone manufacturer and their products have the potential to go neck to neck with the likes of Samsung and Apple, but they need to start providing better support for their older smartphones as well as new ones.
