James Bond can’t even get a Kitkat update for his phone Xperia T, TX and V to remain on Jelly Bean

Seems even the inimitable James Bond can’t sway the Android update gods for his Xperia TX. Back in November last year, soon after the launch of Kitkat, Sony announced that they were investigating the possibility of bringing this latest Android update to a number of their phones. Among those being looked at were the Xperia T, TX and V, but unfortunately it looks like they won’t be seeing the update.

Xperia T-TX-V to stay on Jelly Bean

Sony was looking to deliver the Android 4.3 update for these phones in February and that will remain the final update. Sony has updated the support page for the Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V. With the ‘Under Investigation Android 4.4 (KitKat)’ tag removed from the software projection timeline and the ‘Latest & final version’ tag added with Android 4.3 listed as the final release.

It’s a sad day for Xperia T, TX and V owners, with that glimmer of hope now extinguished officially, but there’s always the option of checking out the ROM community if you want your phone to get a slightly better update. Still, it’s a shame that even James Bond can’t get an Android update for his phone

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
