Platform not showing correctly

Greetings

 

I have just got a new 9900 and I read the software version and it shows 7.0.0 Bundle 1346

 

However, In my app I call

 

String name = DeviceInfo.getPlatformVersion();

 

And it shows

 

5.0.0.464

 

If I look at About Device Versions it shows (v7.0.0.261, Platform 5.0.0.464)

 

So how do I get the 7.0.0.261 - what call do I make to get that.

 

Thanks
