Sailfish OS For Sony Xperia X Smartphones Launched at €49.90



Sony has been trying hard lately to make it big in the smartphone market. The company has launched a ton of new smartphones and in fact, it looks like they have a lot of new ones lined-up as well. It is also worth noting that they have tried a few things on the software side as well and on the same lines, one thing which the company did was allowing Jolla, the company behind Sailfish OS to optimize the platform for Xperia X smartphones.

Well, firstly, for those of you who don’t know what Sailfish OS is, it is an operating system developed by Jolla and the same has been spotted running on a few smartphones from companies like Intex, etc. If you are not aware of this, then we don’t blame you for it since it is not all that popular in comparison to something like Android/ iOS. And talking about the Xperia X smartphones getting the OS support, this was announced at the beginning of the year and now finally we have something on this front.

It has now been reported by Jolla that Sailfish OS for the Xperia X smartphone is now available to be purchased and downloaded. Yes, you read that just right. Users who are willing to give this a shot on their Xperia X smartphones will have to buy the OS and then you will be able to install it. The image to be flashed on the smartphone costs €49.90 (including VAT) which roughly translates to about 4,000 INR. The same will be available starting October 11th. Interested users in Europe can buy the OS starting September 27th, post which, the OS will be made available on the above-mentioned date.

As of now, there is no info about the availability of the same in other countries, however, it is expected that it will be made available in North America very soon. Also, if you are planning on purchasing and installing it on your Xperia X smartphones, then, hold on. There are a couple of things which you should be knowing.

Do make a note that not all the features will work initially with the first software release. This means that even after paying for the OS, the first release will have issues and features like Bluetooth, Fingerprint sensor, FM Radio, etc. probably won’t work. Also, in order to install the OS, it looks like a Linux PC will be necessary. And lastly, it is also worth noting that the same can be installed only on unlocked (Single-SIM) Xperia X smartphones. Having said that, be sure to let us know your thoughts on by leaving a comment down below.
