I need a new phone and i want to have dual sim and unfortunately i need android support. Its a pitty actually everything i need is available but not combined -.-

  • Xperia X dual is very old and fully supported but not available anymore
  • Xperia XA2 dual is available but not fully supported so far :(

Other than Android support, NFC and only basic BT support everything else seems to work very nice even now wtih dual SIM configuration on XA2. Updated Android support is coming soon... just have to wait still a while.

is there something like a beta user program? If I remember correctly i saw at the community event in Berlin already XA2 devices with android support...

I saw following comment at the jolla shop: "The full Sailfish X software with all commercial components for Sony Xperia™ XA2, XA2 Plus, and XA2 Ultra will be available by the end of 2018. You can start your Sailfish OS trial with these devices already now with the Sailfish X Free version, and purchase and install the commercial components easily later."

"Sailfish OS 3.0.1 will be released in early January. The commercial release of Sailfish X for XA2, including the Android apps support, will follow soon after the 3.0.1 release is fully released and rolled out."

Okay this sounds more concrete than the text of the shop. Thx for this link. So buy and hope they stay on schedule.

Before buying the XA2 Dual SIM, note that only the 6" devices (Plus and Ultra) have full dual SIM. The regular XA2 shares the second SIM slot with the Micsro SD slot!
