Sony Xperia SP aa 1600 (6)

Sony has already begun rolling out the Android 4.3 update for its 2013 flagships the Xperia Z, Z1 and Z Ultra, and now it has announced the rollout dates for the Sony Xperia SP, T, TX and V smartphones. Sony Mobile News tweeted today that the rollout will begin from the end of January to early February.

Software updates are a sticking point with many consumers and it’s good to see Sony make good on its promise to update the devices, albeit a little late after it claimed it would begin rolling out the update from December. Better late than never, right?

As far as an Android 4.4 KitKat update is concerned, the Xperia SP has been confirmed to be receiving the update, while the Xperia T and TX update possibilities are both under investigation.

    Why no S support? The first phone from Sony and they dont support it

    • Bjajjull

      Because there are no drivers.

      • Jack Parker

        Why not? It has pretty much the same specs as the T

        • Bjajjull

          Ask Qualcomm.

            The Xperia S uses a Snapdragon S3 which Qualcomm has unfortunately dropped support for it meaning that like @bjajjull:disqus said, there are no drivers for Android 4.2 and beyond. That means that even if Sony wanted to update it, it couldn’t.
