As you might already know, Jolla and Sony have partnered to bring the Sailfish OS to Xperia devices. A heads up related to the progress was given last month. And now, Jolla has announced that Sailfish OS for Sony Xperia X – or Sailfish X, as it’s officially called – will be available on September 27.
The company notes that some of the features aren’t officially supported yet, including Bluetooth, new sensors (e.g. barometer, step counter), fingerprint, and FM-radio. It’s not that these aren’t included – they are there, but expect issues and beta level experience.
Installation isn’t going to be easy as well (at least for this release). Jolla says a Linux PC as well as some knowledge of the command line is required to install Sailfish OS on your Xperia device.
Availability will be initially restricted to EU, Norway, and Switzerland (US & CA are still to be confirmed). Oh, and yes, the software is paid – it costs €49.90.
