Sony begins Jelly Bean rollout to the Xperia V

Sony Xperia V

Last week, Sony gave Xperia T owners a surprise by pushing out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean to the phone earlier than previously scheduled. Now, the same Jelly Bean update is making its way to the Xperia V (LT25i).

For now, the update is live for folks in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, and Singapore. It’s possible that more countries will join the list soon. Those who have made the jump to Jelly Bean reported that the update brings the phone’s firmware to version 9.1.A.0.490.

We’re not sure if you can grab the new firmware via OTA, but a lot of folks seem to receive the upgrade via Sony PC companion software. Since there doesn’t seem to be any official changelog yet, we also can’t tell whether or not the JB update will fix the “Sleep of Death” bug that’s plaguing the device.

With the Xperia V receiving its Android 4.1.2 update, this leaves the Xperia TX as the odd one out. Hopefully we’ll hear more good news in the coming days.

Did you get Jelly Bean yet on your phone? Let us know in the comments below.
