The Sony Xperia Z may get its Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean bump as early as mid-July, if we’re to believe a roadmap on Australian carrier Telstra’s website.
According to said page, which lists a number of phone update dates, the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is currently in first round testing. The data on the page is current as of June 17, so there are reasons to take it seriously.
As you can see in the screenshot below, approval date is expected to be July 1st, and the update (which has been received on June 14 and is currently in the test phase) is expected to be available to customers on July 15.
The Sony Xperia Z with Android 4.2.2 is already unofficially unavailable, and features have even been shown in a video. Hopefully, the Australian carrier’s roadmap is right, and all you Xperia Z users will be able to enjoy the update in less than a month.
However, if you’re still undecided about buying the Sony Xperia Z, maybe our thorough review of Sony’s flagship device will help you.
The Sony Xperia Z is not the only device to be mentioned on Telstra’s update page. The same page also mentions August 5 as the expected availability date to customers of the Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update for Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 4G.
