Sony to update the Xperia Z with Android 4.2 JB soon after launch

By on 23:04

The Xperia Z is one of the hottest devices in January, but unfortunately runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and not the latest available version of the Google OS (which is 4.2). Sony, however, is going to make things right 'soon after the launch' of its 5" smartphone and update the smartphone to the latest Android version.

This was confirmed by a Sony representative, who released the information in a recent Q&A session. When asked whether the Xperia Z will get Android 4.2, he said:
Xperia Z launches on JB 4.1, but will receive 4.2 shortly after launch. As always, we’ll share more info on this over the coming weeks on the blog.
So when will the Z launch? Sony hasn't officially confirmed this yet, but we've got some major UK retailers saying we can expect the device in March. However, Polish retailers have listed the device for a February launch. So, hopefully, if it launches by then, Sony will issue the 4.2 Jelly Bean update at the start of Q2.
