New firmware has been certified for the Sony Xperia S, version 6.1.A.2.34 was certified yesterday. The version number is a small departure from the last firmware certified (6.1.A.0.454), leading some to speculate that this may be Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We believe this will be another Android 4.0.4 ICS firmware update, but we’ll have to wait to see to find out exactly what improvements it brings.
The Japanese equivalent of the Xperia S, the Xperia NX (SO-02D) has also had new firmware certified with version number 6.1.F.0.91 popping up on PTCRB. This same firmware has also been certified for the water resistant Xperia acro HD (SO-03D) in Japan.
