Sony confirmed on its blog post that its Xperia P smartphone will be the latest to get the Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
"All Xperia P users will get a notification when the upgrade is ready, but direct availability in the phone may vary across different markets and carriers. It's worth noting that in some cases, the software package may only be accessible via PC Companion or Bridge for Mac, instead of directly in the phone," per Sony's blog post.
Sony also added that users can enjoy enhanced features and functionality with the software upgrade.
The Xperia P was launched earlier this year. The smartphone features a 4-inch display screen with 540x960 and is Near-Field Communication (NFC) enabled. The device sports an 8-megapixel camera with HD recording that can capture 2D and 3D panoramic images. The Xperia P can support HDMI and DLNA connectivity. A 1-GHz dual-core processor powers the smartphone. The internal storage capacity of the smartphone is 16GB and the option to expand the memory is not on offer.The Xperia P was initially launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The Xperia P was Sony's first phone to include the company's "white magic" display. This feature allows the phone to automatically adjust brightness in sunlight and allows consumers to use it easily.
Sony indicates on the blog post that the ICS upgrade for Sony's Xperia U, Xperia sola, and Xperia are also on its way.
Sony Xperia P users will be happy to get the ICS upgrade. In the meantime, other Sony smartphone users can look forward for potential upgrade to ICS. With ICS on board, Sony smartphone users' expectation levels may have increased tenfold and they would now possibly look forward to a Jelly Bean update from the Japanese company.
