Sony Mobile has confirmed that an upgrade to the latest Jelly Bean edition of Android will begin rolling out to the 2012 Xperia range before the end year’s end.
The phone-maker revealed via Twitter that an update (presumably over-the-air) to Android 4.1.1 will be available for a number of Xperia smartphones this month. Models it had previously identified as in line for the reswizz are the Xperia T, Xperia TX, Xperia V, Xperia S, Xperia Acro S, Xperia Ion, Xperia P, Xperia Go and Xperia J.
The exact rollout dates are likely to vary between models and markets. Owners of the Xperia T, Xperia TX and the Xperia V, though, are expected to wait until February next year to receive their update.
As is typical with most Android refreshes, handsets bought unlocked are more likely to get it first while contract customers may face a slightly longer wait.
Although it’s not one of the devices listed above, the Xperia U is also apparently due for an update according to Sony Mobile’s Italian Facebook page, news that’s sure to delight owners of the entry-level kit.
Improvements the software bump is expected to bring include UI tweaks, an enhanced notifications bar and numerous performance optimisations.
