Xperia SP users are now bombarding us with comments when they will get android 4.3 firmware update as when it was promised to be delivered in December 2013 only. Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.253 firmware was certified a week ago on PTCRB website and a few days back we saw Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware for Xperia T and Xperia V getting certified on PTCRB and now questions arises is Xperia SP getting android 4.3 at the same time with Xperia T and Xperia V now ?

We asked official Sony Xperia Support on Twitter regarding the ETA of Android 4.3 Xperia SP update and they replied that “Sony is still working on it” and should come soon though no ETA was given by them.

[ UPDATE – 9 Dec ]

Xperia SP Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.256 firmware Screenshots Leaked – New White UI, Sony Smart Camera App and Xperia Themes

UPDATE – 8 Dec ]

New Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.256 firmware Certified for Xperia SP again

Check our conversation with Xperia Support Twitter. We presented them that users are frustrated over delay in rolling android 4.3 for Xperia SP.


When we asked will Xperia SP gets android 4.3 in 1st week of Jan 2014, they decided to remain mum on this issue.


We do expect that it should come soon in 1st week of Jan 2014.
What do you think Xperia SP users are you frustrated over Sony for delaying so much android 4.3 for Xperia SP ?

    Fuck Sony, they never keep promises. Just like when they promised the Xperia Play ICS, and on the last day they said it would no longer receive it.
