Sony Xperia SL and Acro S Jelly Bean update is ready

Earlier on today we reported that the Sony Xperia S Android Jelly Bean update started rolling out, and now we can add the Sony Xperia SL and the Xperia Arco S 4.1.2 JB roll out.

The world went crazy today when they heard about the Sony Xperia S Android Jelly Bean update, so much so our previous article covering the news has hit over 190 comments, it seems a lot of people are still waiting for their update.

If you own the Sony Xperia SL you will be notified when your Android JB 4.1.2 update is ready to download and install, if you cannot wait you can head on over to the Sony PC suite to see if it is ready.

This new Sony SL update was confirmed via the tweet shown above, and more good is to come for Sony Ion owners, because you will get the update soon too.

What ever country you are in please do let us know if you have received your Jelly Bean update on any of these devices: Sony Xperia S, SL or Arco S?

Please remember to let us know what device you have and what country you are in, the more information you provide the better, thanks all.

  • Dior Hirai Ruado

    I have upgraded to JB yesterday on my Sony XS (from the Philippines), I just wanna have feedback if people would have reviews on what are the additional features that comes with this OS. Thanks!

    • Exequiel


      • Dior Hirai Ruado

        Xperia S

  • Dior Hirai Ruado

    So far what is so fascinating about the JB updated for Sony XS is fixing the camera auto focus problem, it has snapshot feature which takes pictures in .5 seconds, auto scene has been very sensitive in determining environment. The walkman feature has added options to look for the song in you tube (including lyrics), even to look for the song being played in google. Android beam (good news!) has been an added feature for this NTC capable device. Power management has been added to make sure data or wifi is not working if the phone screen is off (downloads though will continue till it’s finish), Google now works just fine, it gives you additional ‘cards’ to weather and whatever interest you have, google voice also is quite exciting (works like siri) will put additional if I can just have time to check out the other features..Hope someone can post an article or video of the added features as what I’m trying to discover would be the multi-tasking capability of JB in XS:) so far so good :) Follow me @thediored

    • Dior Hirai Ruado

  • prashanth

    when will be the update for xperia ion will get released in INDIA

  • Robert Llobrera Jr.

    Just updated my phone last day. The update is nice but there is a problem with the video recording. I notice there is a noticeable frame drops in the video. They added the portrait video recording which is nice and when taking pictures, the camera is much much faster than the ICS though there’s still no improvements on the noise when taking pictures in low-light conditions. The layout is nice and also the added widget. I must say, the Sony UI has improved a lot due to the fact that it’s less cluttered.

  • Erick

    i updated my Xperia Arco S.but i found that there is no stamina mode in phone.I’m from Malaysia

  • Andrewfication

    REMINDER TO THOSE WHO DIDNT GOT UPDATE YET! please use PC COMPANION! i didnt get new update on phone but when i plugged using PC Comp automatically detects the new update! CHEERS! im from Philippines and using XPERIA SL! :)

  • Ash

    Sony you seriously need to learn some lessons.
    1. Make sure there are no leaks on dates that can’t be met
    2. when you release an upgrade say for a country on a particular model, all the models with different build numbers should get the update same day

    nevertheless, we users in the UK are really pissed off by your incompetency….US and UK are the largest markets and no update to UK owners compared to rest of asia…’re making a lot of mistakes and its time to learn from it and ensure not repeated…
