And once again about the GLONASS
Are there any thoughts on this subject?
There are some considerations.

The NovaThor U8500 is the first integrated smartphone platform to offer the latest Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) dual core technology in a high-performance, low-power and cost-optimized solution for multiple operating systems.Starting next month, the U8500 will feature theCG2905multi-function connectivity chip - announced today at Mobile World Congress - which addsGLONASSsupport to the 2900 series of GNSS, FM, and BluetoothВ® combos.
Thus, NovaThor U8500 received support GLONASS recently, along with the announcement of the chip CG2905 (specs
The latter, apparently, is just used SGA2.
It is possible that the vendor chooses which one chip (CG2900 / CG2905) will be used as part of the chipset in a particular device.
Or, alternatively, orders for chipsets for some models (Xperia P, U, Sola, SGS Advance) were placed manufacturers to launch the updated chip. No wonder they have appeared on the shelves of a subject much earlier, and all without the support GLONASS.
