When are we getting the latest update? (4.3)

Just like any update there isn't an specific release date for each country/network

 

http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/software/phones/xperia-v/

 

Latest available software

 

You may already have the latest software, depending on the date of purchase. Software updates are released at different times depending on operator and/or country. Therefore, we cannot give you an exact date for when a specific update will be available for your device.

 

If you can not wait for the update then you can manually update your phone to the latest firmware

Android 4.2 on Xperia V?

Hi,

I guess this question is for a Sony official: any plan for an update to 4.2 for our wonderful Xperia V?

Thanks.

Laurent.

Re: Android 4.2 on Xperia V?

Thanks for the link.  Interesting commments made by Mr. F. Ekstrand.  Although this has been an exciting year for Sony Mobile, I must say the amounts of products being introduced are many.  In fact, I believe that his dept. may be overburdened by such....causing delays in maintanence and updates of software. However, I do agree with the author about going to 4.3 in the next update.

Xperia V 4.2 or 4.3??

I've been using the xperia v for about 6 months and have been so far happy with it. I'm just wondering when or at least will I be expecting an update to 4.2 or straight to 4.3? Really hoping to see improvements with the phone in the coming updates.

Re: Sony Xperia V Update

There hasn't been any official statement about this yet, but there have been rumours that devices with JB 4.1 will possibly be updated straight to JB 4.3

Re: Sony Xperia V Update

This is the only info available 

 

 

http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2013/07/25/on-android-jelly-bean-4-3/

 

Hi everyone, a quick note on our software roadmap…

So, Sony’s Jelly Bean 4.2 upgrade for Xperia Z and Xperia ZL is well underway* – next up, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z will start receiving 4.2 from early August.

Yesterday you probably saw Google announce the next version of Jelly Bean (Android 4.3) – we’re already getting stuck in and can confirm we’ll make 4.3 available for: Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia SP and Xperia Z Ultra…

We’re also looking at uplifting some of our other devices running 4.1 direct to 4.3 – we’ll share more info / deets / timings when we can, so be sure to follow @SonyMobileNews for all the latest.

Anything else is/are speculations.

 

Don't forget to give Kudos
