Android 4.3 Update for Sony Xperia TX and SP Preparing for Imminent Release (At Least on Vodafone AU)

A little under a month ago, we talked about how Sony promised to deliver Android 4.3 to the Sony Xperia, T, TX, V, and Xperia SP in the very near future. This firmware update, which has been leaked during the course of its development on the SP and a few other devices, has also been the subject of much speculation thanks to some additional statements by Sony.

Now, it appears as if the software update is finally in the last few stages preparing for release—and this isn’t just for those mythical unbranded and unlocked devices that nobody ever buys, but rather for actual carrier-provided handsets. This good news comes direct from Vodafone Australia, the same carrier to offer similar insight for the Xperia M just last week.

Now, it’s important to keep in mind that just like last week’s news for the Xperia M, this technically only applies to the Vodafone Australia variants of the devices. That said, given that the update was probably submitted to other carriers at the same time, we can’t imagine that it will be too long before other carriers (as well as different regions of Vodafone) release the update on their networks.

Good job Vodafone Australia for leading the pack with these Xperia updates. Let’s hope this just makes its way to other carriers and regions in a timely manner. Once you’re one ranting and sharing your thoughts in the comments below, be sure to head over to the Sony Xperia, T, TX, V, and Xperia SP forums to continue the discussion!

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
