Xperia T + TX

Updated Sony apps along with newer version of Jelly Bean

Sony Mobile has announced the rollout of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for four of its legacy 2012-2013 products, Xperia T, Xperia TX, Xperia V and Xperia SP. The update brings these older handsets up to speed with Sony's latest smartphones, with new Sony goodies in addition to the newer version of Jelly Bean.

Sony's app portfolio has been refreshed, including Messaging, Smart Connect, Small apps, Track ID and Sony Select. The update also brings new versions of Sony's media apps, including Walkman, Album and Movies, with Sony service integration, as well as downloadable themes similar to those now available for the Xperia Z series. And there's an updated Power Management hub, featuring new options for saving battery life.

As always, the rollout of Android 4.3 for these phones will be staged depending on region and carrier, so keep watch over the next couple of weeks if you're not seeing the update already.

Really pleased to see Sony are finally getting their act together with upgrading their older phones. I will definitely be thinking about getting another Sony phone once I'm out of contract on my Xperia T.

Never had anything else but Android. Every major OEM is moving ahead with 4.4 and Sony just NOW is releasing 4.3. Like I said, this is embarrassing.

Tell that to all the other manufacturers who still have phones on 4.1 or 4.2. At least Sony is updating older devices. All people can do is complain these days. No one appreciates anything. Let's just look at the negatives and ignore the positives.

Who? Samsung, Motorola, HTC are pushing 4.4.
Sorry but there's simply no excuse. I guess it's a "positive" they are doing something LOL.

This is to OLDER devices. HTC and Samsung do not have 4.4 on older devices. The xperia Z1 had 4.3 last year.

At least Sony updates their older models. What are the older HTC phones on? 4.2 at most. Some are probably still on ice cream sandwich.
