Once again, Sony has proved that they listen to their customers. On Twitter, the Company officially confirmed the arrival of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for four smartphones of the Xperia line-up.
Sony will start rolling out the official update for Xperia T, TX, V and SP within next few weeks. More precisely, Android 4.3 may arrive between late January and early February. Although it’s not the latest release, KitKat, but it’s a good news.
The release originally planned before the end of 2013, but didn’t arrive in time on New Year’s Eve, and caused so many negative comments from users. Concerning all expectation of their customers, Sony tweeted: We hear you re: JB 4.3 for #Xperia T, TX, V, SP – we’re making final preps & will start rolling from end Jan / early Feb.
So once again, Sony has accounted the feedback from users, including those were not strictly positive due to delays with respect to the roadmap announced earlier. However, a question remains unanswered whether this will be the last official update for these Xperia phones and there will be no way to switch to later versions of Android in the future? Hopefully, Sony may help Google to make the Android platform less fragmented.
Meanwhile, the much-anticipated arrival of the Android 4.4 KitKat on LG G2 has postponed, which was scheduled for late January. Although the Italian manufacturer has touted on Facebook and promised to roll out the update before the end of March, but the wait is still pretty long.
