Sony had promised an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Xperia U in Q3 of 2012, but that didn’t materialize. Now, Sony Mobile Brazil, in a reply to a customer’s query on Twitter has said that the update will arrive on the Xperia U in November. That’s the second month of Q4, so it’s safe to say that this is quite a big delay.
Of course, it’s possible that this is just the schedule for Brazil and that other regions will get the update before November, though Sony has not officially announced anything about it. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for a speedy and quick update. With Android 4.1 already out since July, the clock is ticking and the customers are waiting.
