As we reported yesterday, the Sony Xperia S has been rumored to possibly receive Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and it looks like that rumor has now become a reality as Sony has announced they will start rolling out an official Android Jelly Bean update for the device.
As of now, only Sony France has confirmed the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, but we’re sure other countries will be making their announcements soon enough. Whether or not Sony decides other Android-powered smartphones it has manufactured are ready for an update to Jelly Bean, like its Xperia Ion, is yet to be seen, but its update of the Xperia S is certainly a step in the right direction.
If you happen to be a Sony Xperia S user in France, then you should be receiving an update notification soon as you can initiate the update either through the Sony PC Companion or over-the-air. For the rest of you outside of France, the rollout of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean shouldn’t take to hit your devices.
