Sony has newly launched a mid ranger Xperia 10. Which is an fantastic upgrade to the XA2 with affordable pricing. The Xperia 10 runs on the same processor as of XA2 (Snapdragon 630).

Will that be easier to port for jolla ?

XA2 is not available in many markets. If jolla ports Sailfish OS for Xperia 10 and release it early, it will be a huge hit and will gain more users.

Everyone likes to buy a new device :)

Post your opinions and what are the hurdles in porting :)

The Xperia XA2 is just one year old.

when Sony add X10 to Open Device Program and release source code then yes.

i may be wrong, 1 year means a lot in today's smartphone industry. Every company has to update itself in the competitive industry to survive. Jolla has updated itself rapidly these much years and will continue too :)

Exactly this seems to be what's going to happen, see topic 8 under "General discussion" in the log of tis week's mer-meeting:

Hey, cool ! Community members are working on a AOSP 8 / Baseport 8 for Xperia X !

(That could also mean potential Aliendalvik 8 on Xperia X if they manage to get the port fully working)

It is listed on Sony's website as open. XA2 was released not that long ago, but some op it's specs are outdated, and I don't like the idea of paying a lot of money for a device that was already outdated by launch. Example: it has a usb 2.0 connection. Technology is already 3 generations further.

How would SFOS benefit from all that? Who's gonna do and maintain the port?

This post is small troll. X10 is total fail by Sony, when compared to predecessor, Xperia xa2 plus or even basic xa2. Only camera is better and new design. Also X10 have smaller battery.

Big no for another mid range bullshit, xperia x1 will be real reasonable choice.

agree to disagree

virgi26 ( 2019-07-13 00:37:33 +0300 )edit

What disagree? You want keep holding lame phone when showing fellows and enoying only partially the unlike experience by Jolla.. We already have this price range phone. We still lack the brilliant oled display, usb 3 and so on. But those mentioned are most wanted imo, and I believe a many of users agree those.

I am known that new xperia 10 have newer drivers/kernel for sailfish use.

Only disagree my straightforwardnes haha.
