Sony has officially confirmed that its flagship smartphone the Xperia S will be updatable to newest Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from this month and early June, denying previous rumours of a July roll out.
The word from the legit source reads “Xperia S is planned to get ICS somewhere around late May/early June. That’s what’s been said and that’s still what we’re sticking to. Any other dates (such as “June/July”) is just speculation. The roll out is, as always, gradual and will not happen overnight for all phones. Some phones might get the update in late May whilst other will get in mid June etc.”
A reminder of that impressive Xperia S as it prepares for upgrading, the gadget packs Gingerbread from the offset, Sony has opted to not join the quad-core market just yet, so the S is driven by a high end 1.5GHz dual-core beast of a processor supplied by Qualcomm, with a whopping 1GB of RAM and 32GB storage, which more than makes up for the absence of MicroSD support. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC are thrown in for internet and connectivity features and the Xperia S boasts a 12-megapixel camera with Sony’s Exmor R Sensor and LED Flash, with a video output of 1020p HD.
The Gadget Helpline gave the handset a good fondling in a recent video review which you can check out in a previous feature – Here.
