Sony Xperia S To Get ICS By Early June

There has been much speculation over when Sony's Xperia S will finally receive its portion of Android 4.0 'Ice Cream Sandwich'. Sony has now announced that the update should arrive "somewhere around late May/early June".

The announcement came from a Sony mobile forum post, where users have found out that: "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 over night for all phones. Some phones might get the update in late May whilst others will get it in mid June etc."

The roll out will come to unlocked, unbranded mobiles first. For those of who acquired your Xperia S through a mobile carrier, the update will arrive when the selected network chooses to release it.

The Sony Xperia S is currently running on the Android 'Gingerbread' 2.3 OS. The device features a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM and a 4.3in display. The smartphone also comes with a 12.1 megapixel camera, capable of 1080p HD video recording.
