Sony ends support for 2012 Xperia phones


Recommended Posts

Sony has begun updating its support pages for the Xperia smartphones released in the year 2012. All of those pages list Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the smartphones "latest and final version".

There are only three droids from this lineup, which fate is still uncertain - Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V. Sony says their KitKat update is "under investigation". So there is still hope for those three, but given the fate of their siblings chances aren't too great.


The 2012 Xperia phones to be left stuck forever on Ice Cream Sandwich are: Xperia U, Xperia tipo (tipo dual), Xperia sola, Xperia miro, and Xperia arc S.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be the last for Xperia SL, Xperia ion, Xperia acro S, Xperia J, Xperia GO, Xperia S, and Xperia P.


We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for all Xperia T, TX and V owners.

NB :- Still worried about the news, sad your devices will be getting the latest update of the Android OS. Dont be, great news for you guys, just head over to the xda-developers website and look for you devices - there is something great for you to enjoy.

thumps up if i made you happy.

I think that manufacturers are slowly moving towards the "one version per phone route". It's easily the most beneficial for for them.

Its a strategy for them - so that we can get to buy their newer phones every time they launch it. but not for me nor members of nsaneforums.

As you can read from my recommendation, stopping support for your devices doesnt mean its gonna be outdated for ever. Thanks to XDA,

you can find newer versions of Android OS - just head over to the site, look for your device, there will be something special for you device.
