Sony pegs the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for Xperia SP, T, TX and V as coming by early February
Sony Xperia SP
We hear you re: JB 4.3 for #Xperia T, TX, V, SP - we’re making final preps & will start rolling from end Jan / early Feb”.
As usual, the official rollout will hit different countries, regions and carriers by different times, so the Jelly Bean prompt might hit your phone closer to the end of February, than the beginning, but what's a few more weeks if you know it's coming. This should put to rest the complains about the delay for Sony's midrangers for last year, especially for the Xperia SP, which was promised to arrive in December.

Yeah hope it's real and they'll do it continually. Otherwise Sony and LG will remain backwards.

It's qualcomm's fault for not releasing the drivers

Its partly qualcomm fault, but there are technically ppl who manage to built stable rom from 4.2.2 to 4.3 to 4.4.2 though. If developer can do it, why cant they?

Because it has the Snapdragon S3. Qualcomm dropped support for the S3, so no devices that have it will get any more updates past 4.1.

Sony gave me a lot of disappointments but still I love them due to their robust quality,but man you should have atleast given a value pack which was given to galaxy s1 :-)

The LG Optimus L7 got updated to Android 4.1, so I think it's fair enough
