Late last year, Sony promised that a number of its Xperia smartphones would be updated to Android 4.3. The only problem was that it didn’t really elaborate on when those updates might begin arriving. Sony is apparently feeling a bit more chatty now, though, because it has revealed that a quartet of Xperia handsets will be bumped up to 4.3 in the very near future.
Sony recently took to its official @SonyMobileNews Twitter account to announce that the Xperia T, TX, V and SP will all begin receiving their updates to Android 4.3 in late January or early February. The company says that it’s currently in the process of making “final preps” for the impending updates.
As is usually the case with software updates, the actual timing and availability of these updates are likely to vary by carrier and market. Still, it’s good to hear that Sony is still working hard on updating its Xperia lineup to newer versions of Android, especially when it comes to some of the older models that some folks may have forgotten about. If you’ve got an Xperia T, TX, V or SP that you call your daily driver, be sure to keep an eye out for an update notification toward the end of this month.
