By  |  7 Comments

Sony Xperia S owners waiting for Android 4.2 are going to have to wait through at least one more Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update as Sony has promised another Xperia S Android 4.1 Jelly Bean bug fix update that will be aimed at tackling some of the lingering issues owners have been seeing in Android 4.1.

At the end of May, Sony began rolling out its long-awaited Xperia S Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, that an update that took the phone from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Google’s latest Android user interface. And while that update brought along a bunch of new features and a new look, the update also rolled out with a host of issues.

Sony will roll out another Android 4.1 Jelly Bean bug fix update to the Xperia S.

Sony will roll out another Android 4.1 Jelly Bean bug fix update to the Xperia S.

In fact, the issues were so numerous that Sony was forced to issue a Jelly Bean bug fix update to the Xperia S just a few weeks after the initial Android 4.1 roll out. Since then, things have been a little quieter than they once were but that doesn’t mean that all of the bugs on the Xperia S have been eradicated.

Sony has announced that it will be rolling out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean bug fix updates for the Xperia S, Xperia SL and Xperia acro S in the coming weeks, though, it is mum about specific release dates. The company says that the updates will have fixes and more but it does elaborate.

The arrival of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brought about GPS and Wi-Fi issues along with general UI lag, particularly in the camera application, issues with the volume keys that periodically wouldn’t work and a number of battery drain issues even with the battery conserving STAMINA mode turned on.

Users are still complaining about some of these issues with issues with battery, camera and crashing being prominent. We’ve also been hearing about issues with Bluetooth though it’s unclear how widespread those might be.

Hopefully, the second time will be a charm and the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean bug fix update will quell the rest of the problems that Xperia S owners have been having.

It’s still unclear when or if the Xperia S will get Android 4.2 Jelly Bean down the road.

    The Xperia S will NOT get Jelly Bean 4.2 due to the fact that Qualcomm does not support their s3 chipsets anymore D:
