Jolla announced earlier today that its open operating system, Sailfish OS, will soon be officially heading to Sony Xperia devices. Jolla and Sony Mobile are working together to support Sony’s Open Devices Program. The first port is a Sailfish OS powered Xperia X, which is currently on display at the MWC tradeshow in Barcelona.

Jolla aims for a community release on Xperia devices by the end of the June 2017. Sony Mobile has always had a commendable open device policy, and this latest collaboration with Jolla is further evidence of this.

Thanks J, Sebastian and Rohit!

    Is there any hands on video with the X? I’m so excited that I went for this phone instead for the compact for the first time. :)

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Good, can we expect jolla software ROM after 2 yr Sony update ends? If yes, good move by Sony.

  • Solano89

    I want to see this also on the Xperia X Performance! :)

    Good thing that Sony try to move away from Google.

  • Sepester

    What is the meaning of a community release ??

  • With Jolla being so small, they release a limited run ‘community device’ to developers and keen fans. The last one was a rebadged Intex Aquafish (Indian, low end). You get access to developer materials and invites to events too.

    What you don’t get is an app store you can make money from as Jolla’s store still doesn’t accept payments.

    Like Samsung with Tizen?

    Actually those updates for the flagship models not Sony’s problem for not releasing. Big example for Z3. Sony was working on that to Nougat and released beta software until Google release the terms. So Google cut Z3 update. And that would be interesting to get Sailfish after Android time done 2 years later bec of Google.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    how will this work with the camera? becuse jolla software needs to acces the bionz image chip.
    i know if u installed other roms on xperia devices before they used the image prossesor from the snapdragon instead of the bionz, and the images tunred out crappy

    anyone know?

    and how about appstore?
    is it still their own appstore wich only has crappy apps and noone of the big apps?

  • Dave

    This will be my next phone to replace my now ageing Jolla, which has served me well and been great but in need of modern decent hardware to show its true potential.

    any chances to see this OS for Xperia XA Ultra?

    > Xperia X
    Ok, we will see how good the cam will work, BT, WLAN, etc. I really appreciate those efforts, but it’s the same issue with Sailfish, Tizen, or Firefox OS: we don’t use an OS, we use it’s apps, running on them. So, no smartwatch, no tracker, no app for Sangean Radio, nor TV guide, Tomtom, Garmin…

    I wish you all fun you can get just by using an OS. I don’t think Jolla will port their Android VM – if yes, why should one use Sailfish?.
