Hi Will the Xperia X Compact get an official Sailfish X 3 update? Thanks

Edit: I am looking to buy a SFOS capable device but I need Android app support and I want it to be somewhat future proof (ie SFOS 3) - is the XA2 at least going to get official support?

Going by former statements by Jolla... Probably not.

I intend to get myself an XXC anyway, even though I have the XX. The size of the hardware is more suitable to my hand (yes, I use my phone one-handed most of the time). The communtiy release for XXC would be good enough for me because i stopped using android apps when Poor Maps (now forked as Pure Maps) came along. For those who are unlucky enough to need android apps I would suggest getting the bigger XX with Sailfish X.

As official as it got SF X 2? Finally got my Compact running with the latest SF X 2.2.1, Alien Dalvik and mircoG. I seriously don't wanna dream any further. But to answer your question: No! And I would be happy to be wrong.

@Vieno - I would also be happy to be wrong.

No need, thanks to patch by @g7 here - https://together.jolla.com/question/185922/sailfish-os-on-sony-xperia-x-compact/ Just purchase Sailfish X license, download official X image from Jolla, patch it with the patcher, and flash on XC. Now your XC will get whatever updates X gets. I'm using it now on 2.2.1.18

@Levone1 - Provided that SF 3 is deployed for Xperia X as well and not only for XA2. And if, we may hv to get a new license for it.
