The team at Jolla has announced that Sailfish OS, or as it’s now known, Sailfish X, will be launching on the Xperia X on 27 September 2017. The Jolla devs say that the software is “great, and it works very well”, including Android app support, mobile data and cameras. You can check out a video below of the progress that has been made.

However, the Jolla devs reiterated that this is a long-term project and there are a number of features that will not be supported in the first release. This includes Bluetooth, new sensors (e.g. barometer, step counter), fingerprint, and FM-radio. The Sailfish X ROM will be available to download in the EU, Norway and Switzerland on 27 September, and will cost €49.90.

To download Sailfish X you will need the single SIM version of the Xperia X. It’s great to see Jolla giving Xperia X owners a chance to try something fresh on their device – are there any owners looking to give Sailfish X a try? Let us know your thoughts below.

Thanks Diogo, Hardiksinh, mrninko, Rohit, Subham and Walaspancha!

  • Beta version, which requires crazy install procedures, for €50?
    Are you kidding?

    50 Euros for a non finished product,rofl, should be free until you finish it, and beta testers get a discount.

  • Lex Luna

    no thanks!

  • Francis Troy Fabrigas

    Make the speaker’s voice louder, add some funky quiet background music, and make the background pure white, and voila! – Steve Jobs’s iPhone advertisement.

    I have dual sim Xperia X F5122 so I can’t get this even if I want.

    This is certainly for a select market but also a way to have a longer life expectancy on your device. In some countries if you convert €50 it is 50% of one’s rent. Would love to play with it to get the feel of it as it could be a very resource efficient OS which in the long run could extend battery life and swift reaction if implemented correctly.

    OMG! Who on earth chose this guy to advertise the product??? It’s actually marketing suicide. Direct shoot in the foot and knee from the shotgun. Double shoot.

    This guy is talking in a way that he would never sell even carrot on the bazaar… The worse is he does not believe in what he is saying. I am under impression that it would be even better if he reads previously prepared (by someone else) marketing bullshit.

    Who the hell would buy it???
    FAILfish project just died with this video. And it’s not because of the price.

    This was actually Steve Job’s advertisnment, when he was at school! :D

    On tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $8752 this last four weeks.. Its the most-financialy rewarding I’ve had.. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it

    Why it’s a bad idea? Because it’s stupid to ask money for a non functional aftermarket rom.

    I doubt you are going to pay for it either.
