Japanese electronics major Sony has announced that it will soon release the Android v4.1 OS Jelly Bean update to at least six Xperia smartphones in the coming days.

On Friday, Sony tweeted that the Android Jelly Bean update for six smartphone models Xperia - P, Go, S, SL, Acro S and Ion - is in its final stage, not revealing the actual date of the availability. But at the end of the tweet, the company said that more news is expected to come next week, possibly hinting the addition of more smartphones to the Jelly Bean OS club.

Here is the Sony Mobile's official Tweeter excerpts:

"Just a quick update to say we hear you re: JB 4.1 for Xperia P & Go, (S, SL, acro S and ion). Work's in v. final stage - more news next week."

As per a report, Sony's Xperia models T, V, J and TX have already received the Jelly Bean update, whereas Xperia Sola and U smartphones have been excluded for the update.

However, considering Sony's recent efforts to release software updates to its older smartphone models, it seems that the Japanese company is following the footsteps of its rival Samsung, which is known to release firmware updates regularly to keep their customer's older smartphones upto date.
