Sony Ericsson phones from 2011 will not be getting Jelly Bean

UK Product Manager for Sony Mobile, John Cooper was taking questions from customers on Facebook recently, and revealed that the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S and Xperia Mini Pro will not be getting updates to Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean OS.

Sony was yet to make an official statement regarding their 2011 phone lineup, and the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update before this. The Xperia Arc S was the Xperia phone with the highest specs released in 2011. So if it isn’t getting the update, you can be sure that none of the other 2011 phones would be getting it. Sony is also yet to announce if the 2012 lineup of Xperia phones will be getting the update to Jelly Bean.

Sony had earlier announced that the 2011 lineup of Xperia phones would be receiving the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update. The rollout for the ICS update was set to take place in a phased manner over the course of several weeks and Sony had stated that all kits for a specific model would not receive the update at the same time.

As for the 2012 Xperia phones, Cooper has said that Sony is still reviewing which handsets are the best suited for the Jelly Bean update, and that the decision will be announced on Sony’s Facebook page.
