Sony Xperia U’s Jelly Bean update to arrive in early December?

by: Bams SadewoDecember 1, 2012

It was only quite recently that the Sony Xperia U made the jump from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich, but now we’re already hearing reports that Sony is preparing to upgrade the phone to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The first one came from an unofficial source, which claimed that an insider has spilled the beans on the Jelly Bean update for the phone. Apparently, the Xperia U, as well as the Xperia Go, Sola, and P, will be getting Jelly Bean in December.

While it may sound too good to be true, a more legit source, in this case Sony Mobile Italy’s Facebook page, seems to back the report, though it stops short in giving a specific timeline. The admin on the page only said that Sony is planning to release the Android 4.1 software update for the Xperia U.

It’s worth to note that the Xperia U is missing from the official Jelly Bean upgrade list for Xperia handsets that Sony released last month. It’s possible that Sony has had a change of heart, yet again. More on this as we hear it.
