It's about time: Xperia S getting Jelly Bean
posted by Ray S. / May 24, 2013, 5:44 AM
The Sony Xperia S, which is still packing quite a punch, by the way, is alive and well, as its manufacturer has now initiated the roll-out of an Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update designed for the venerable smartphone.
Sony France has just tweeted the following: "Xperia S: le déploiement de la 4.1.2 vient de débuter pour les 1ers builds FR."
Ha! Bet you understood it all... OK, we actually don't know a single word in French, but according to our partners from Google Translate, it means that Sony has begun the deployment of Android 4.1.2. As always, the roll-out will happen in stages, so don't freak out if you sport an Xperia S and you're yet to get that sweet notification about a pending update. It might take up to a few weeks until Jelly Bean arrives for you, but then again, you know it'll be worth the wait.

- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S3, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB

Yes. It will take half a year for roll out to complete and by then we will have KLP and Sony as usual will be same old story ... always late ... Despite this bought XPERIA TX last week because of replaceable battery and expansion slot.
