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.

 

Android version: Google Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)

Latest available software: 9.1.A.1.140

Release started: 2013-04-10

Re: Latest firmware available for Xperia V ?

As far of 4.3 

 

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.

Re: Sony Xperia V Update

It has been over 2 months since that post went live. As far as Sony was the first to promise 4.3 update, they could well be the last to actually roll them out. HTC has started, Samsung quite soon. While no news on when 2013 Xperia models will get, worse still they left us, owners of 2012 Xperia models hanging by merely just vaguely saying they are in the process of deciding which devices to uplift from 4.1 to 4.3. Seems like lessons are still not learnt despite claims they will do better, come on, Sony, is this all that you got?
