Sony Xperia SP

Three mid-range devices released Aug. 2012 make the jump from Android 4.1

Building on a rough launch window detailed in November last year, Sony has confirmed that the Xperia T, TX, V and SP will be getting Android 4.3 updates starting this month. That's a pretty big step for these mid-range or lower devices, which will all make the jump directly from Android 4.1 to 4.3. The Xperia T, TX and V were released back in August of 2012, and while the SP was released later it's still good to see each device move beyond the first iteration of Jelly Bean.

Sony says it is making final preparations on the updates, and will start pushing them out by the end of January to be completed by early February. Anyone out there holding onto one of these mid-range Sony phones? Keep an eye out for those update notifications.
