This update, nicknamed Mouhijoki, introduces a new simpler single item view in Gallery and Camera app, adds fingerprint unlock support and emoji keyboard layout. VPN and MDM have become more robust. Android Support has been updated for Xperia X and Jolla C devices. There are several improvements for Email app. Remorse timers can be swiped away to commit immediately. We have dropped continuous focus from Xperia X camera – the camera stays out of focus when it starts until you either tap or try to take a shot – but the pictures seem to be better focused now. Last but not least Sailfish X now officially supports the Xperia X dual SIM phone (F5122).
It’s only for early access subscribers for now, but assuming no gamebreaking issues are found, it should roll out to everyone else soon enough.
I am really keen on seeing Sailfish 3.0 and especially seeing it on feature phone format (one i have recently warmed to as a means detoxing from the smartphone noise).
What is interesting is the Xperia X (which is a device you pay a license for the OS for) still doesn’t have all its hardware functions supported. And soon they will be expanding to the XA2.
Assuming Android is a given, its now competing with KaiOS for the featurephone OS of choice.
