According to Samsung Germany Facebook page, Galaxy S Advance is going to get Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update in January. This is not 100% sure, but we can know now that Galaxy S Advance users will get their devices updated to Android 4.1.2 in the future. As also is known Facebook pages like this aren’t always 100% official, as was in case of Samsung Sweden as they informed that Galaxy S2 is going to get that same update in November, but since that post the schedule is now moved to November-December.
Galaxy S Advance is Samsung’s mid-range Android handset with 4-inch Super AMOLED display (400-by-800 resolution), dual-core processor and it currently runs Android 2.3.6.
We’ll have to sit tight and wait for more info, but the hope is now out.

Sony has decided to delay European launch of Xperia V smartphone. Wait for it, there’s quite good reason for Sony to do so, because when Xperia V arrives in Europe, it will launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and not with originally planned Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Xperia V price will be dropped from €549 to €529. The phone was originally planned to launch in France and Germany in December 2012.
This is great news for Xperia fans in Europe, well at least if you’re willing to wait little bit longer to get Jelly Bean onboard as well.
