The latest Android upgrade for Sony’s recently launched Xperia S could land sometime in the next three weeks, it has been confirmed.
Responding to customer enquiries regarding a possible delay for the release of Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) to July, Markus of the Xperia support team has assured this is not the case.
"Xperia S is planned to get ICS somewhere around late May/early June. That's what's been said and that's still what we're sticking to. Any other dates (such as “June/July”) is just speculation,” he explained.
“The roll out is, as always, gradual and will not happen over night for all phones. Some phones might get the update in late May whilst others will get it in mid June”.
Sony previously said the update would be rolled out “from the later part of the second quarter”.
Features the newest OS refresh brings to the platform include numerous UI and performance tweaks, a screen unlock mechanism that uses face detection technology and Android Beam support – which uses NFC technology to enable instant transfer of data between two compatible devices.
