Following the disappointment of the Xperia SP KitKat news yesterday, there is some good news today as Sony has started to roll out a new bug-fixing firmware update with build number 12.1.A.1.201. This follows on from the last released build with version number 12.1.A.0.266.
Sony has updated its Xperia SP support pages to highlight this new build includes an enhanced user experience, improved battery life and software performance improvements. You can see from our Xperia Update Checker screencaps below that the firmware is already out across a number of different regions for all three variants of Xperia SP (C5302, C5303 and C5306).
