The latest Android smartphones announced by Sony, the Xperia acro S and Xperia go, have yet to make their entrance, but the Japanese company plans to unveil new devices.
There’s a new announcement on Sony Mobile’s Facebook page, which teases one or more Xperia smartphones.
Although Sony mentions the official announcement will go live on June 22, the company offers fans the opportunity to speed up the unveiling date by clicking the “fast forward” option.
So far, there have been more than 2,000 fans that voted for an early Sony announcement and managed to move it forward by around 12 hours.
However, while the teaser is still present on Sony’s Facebook page
voting is not possible anymore. It’s unclear why the company removed the countdown, but it may have something to do with the tremendous feedback received in the first couple of hours.
Sony is still struggling to deploy the long-awaited Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update for its 2011 Xperia smartphones. Unfortunately, those who own 2011 Xperia phones
and did the upgrade to Android 4.0 reported lots of issues.
Most if not all 2011 Xperia smartphones that received their promised Ice Cream Sandwich update have been plagued by numerous bugs and performance issues.
There’s no telling whether Sony will manage to offer fixes for all these bugs, especially that the company already launched a new series of Android smartphones, Xperia NXT.
Unfortunately, none of the Xperia NXT
smartphones that are currently available on the market, including Xperia S, P and U, runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Sony confirmed an OS upgrade would be available for all three devices, but no exact release date has been unveiled yet.
The next Xperia devices that will probably be announced this week might be powered by Google’s latest Ice Cream Sandwich platform, though they’ll probably go on sale as early as next month.
