Where did you hear about a discount coming? There's no mention about it in Jolla Shop.

The discount for earlier customers and the eventual update of android support for Xperia X is not related at all. The discount is a nice gesture for being a faithful customer, not a way to make us update to XA2 for updated android support.

Correct, as far as I know. Discount is only related to previous Sailfish X customers.

What it comes to Xperia X getting Alien Dalvik update, that would require kernel update, which would pretty much re-creating hybris support (AFAIK) which would be, in worst case, as painful as making a whole new device supported. I guess how many users of Xperia X are still using the device (and also perhaps willing to pay for it) will determine if the update ever gets done.
