Android Jelly Bean update might roll this week for the Sony Xperia P, Go, S, SL, acro S and ion

Sony tweeted to watch the the space this week, as the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for its 2012 phone crop is in the very final stages of development. The phones mentioned are Sony Xperia S, SL, P, Go, acro S, and the Xperia ion.

We already had a sneak peak of a carrier update schedule, which indicated that the Xperia S will be getting JB-ed in May, so it's very probable that the glbal version will start being updated even sooner. The recent Android 4.1 update for the Xperia TX brought on some extra features, so we are eagerly awaiting more details on the schedule for the above handsets, too.

Sony waits for other OEMs like Samsung, HTC to roll out KLP to their respective flagships and then roll out JB 4.2. Haha!

Sadly, it's kind of true. Though I don't expect Sony to delay 4.2 until other OEMs release KLP, KLP will definitely be out for Nexus devices before Sony releases 4.2 for the Xperia Z.

Yeah, I agree with you. Same as HTC, KLP will be out for Nexus devices before HTC releases 4.2 for the One, same as Sony!

Geez.....they're damn slow!

Who knows really. HTC has really made a turn around with the One, they might just pull out an update to 4.2 before Google I/O. HTC is the manufacturer with the fastest updates after all.

Sadly it's kinda true... Sony release an update just before a new update is announced.. That's nearly a year wait for an update and much longer than most other Oems.. My brother has the xperia s which was apparently sonys 2012 flagship device but that's device came on gingerbread when most other devices were on ics and then got ics after jb was released I think... And now it's getting jb when klp is just around the corner.. It seems to Sony wait for a new version to be released before they update.. Imo a nearly a year wait os not acceptable. My s3 had jb before my brothers xperia s got ics and frankly that's not right.. Considering these 2 phones were the flagships for the first half of 2012 and were released close to one another test should be getting updates near same time.

Who will be the first to get KLP? It will definitely be Nexus devices.

The second, I think it will be the Galaxy S4, cuz the Galaxy S4 is running JB 4.2 out of the box.

What's left? Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, LG Optimus G Pro etc.
And I have a feeling that the LG Optimus G Pro will be the third to get KLP, I don't know why. lol

Yep I would say your spot on but other than nexus devices which will obviously get update 1st, all the other devices should be getting klp around the same time as they will all be getting klp source code at the same time.. Dont think it matters that s4 is on the latest now.

HTC would still have to roll out 4.2 before they get to KLP, also.

Sony and HTC should have skipped 4.2 and go straight to KLP
4.2 just brings minor gmmicky stuff that doesnt bring a whole lot of improvements to the performance UI etc

According to Sony, the single A5 core of Xperia J can push 245 pixels per inch while running on JB 4.1 but the two A9 cores of Xperia U can't push 280 pixels per inch, given the same amount of RAM in both the phones. How cute!

It's the GPU. Mali eats more RAM than Adreno 200. It has been explained somewhere.

How is it that the Xperia Go gets the Jelly Bean treatment, and the Xperia Sola doesn't? What gives?
