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.
