We all know very well that the search for new mobile operating systems has led brands to make different decisions than usual and may seem strange to most users. However, recently a strange partnership between Sony and Jolla has come to light, through which Jolla decided to make its own way to Sony Xperia Smartphones.
Sailfish OS Is Making Its Way To Sony Xperia Smartphones
The search for new mobile operating systems has led brands to make different decisions than usual and may seem strange to most users.
Several of these situations have happened in the past and one is about to arrive. Jolla and Sony are getting ready to join, bringing Sailfish OS to the Xperia X.
Sailfish OS is an operating system created by a team of former engineers who worked at Nokia, which despite being praised, has not had the success that many expected. It never reached the threshold of others and was only present in the equipment of Intex, Fairphone and of TRI. Of course, there was still the experience with Russia, but it never started.
The recent announcement from Jolla has shown that the Sailfish OS version for the Sony Xperia X is finally coming. Developments for this new version will be nearing completion and as early as October, on the 11th, will be available.
Anyone who wants to have Sailfish OS in their Xperia X will have an unpleasant surprise. This version will cost $59. At the beginning, it will also only be available in European and North American markets.
The first version of Sailfish OS for the Sony Xperia X will have other limitations, at least in the first version. Jolla has announced that there will be bugs that will cause some problems in Bluetooth, FM radio, fingerprint reader, and other sensors. An update will follow later that will correct all these problems.
In order to install Sailfish OS on the Sony Xperia X, it will be necessary to have a PC running Linux, something that not everyone has access to. It is also necessary that the Xperia X must be single SIM and that it is not blocked to any operator.
This partnership between Jolla and Sony could be the oxygen balloon the Finnish company needs that will ultimately make Sailfish OS grow and become a truly viable alternative.
