About a week ago, the Sony Xperia M started receiving its official update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. While not KitKat, it at least proves that Sony still wants to show its mid-range device some official firmware lovin’. Naturally, many Xperia M Dual (C2005) owners wondered when the dual-sim variant would receive the update. Thankfully, that time is now.
XDA Forum Member navidhz first shared the news early yesterday, and it was later confirmed by Sony on the Xperia M Dual’s official firmware page. And just like its single-SIM sibling, the update brings Android 4.3 and a host of minor improvements such as a smoother UI, an updated battery stamina mode, new first party apps, and security enhancements. But unlike last week’s 15.4.A.0.23 update for the Xperia M, today’s update for the X Dual comes in at version 15.5.A.0.18.
The update is currently rolling out to consumer devices, and should also be available through Sony’s PC Companion. But for those who’d like to install the update a bit more directly, XDA Senior Member mbc07 was kind enough to repackage the update into a flashable FTF.
