Xperia 1 IV, 5 IV and 10 IV support

Hi Sailors,

Just saw on the Sony site that the Sony Xperia 10 IV is now also a Supported Device in the Open Device Program.

What does this mean for official support?

I would like to buy it in Black Friday if Jolla officially supports the device.

What do you think?

What does this mean for official support?

Possible? Sure.
Certain? Definitely not.

Support for 10 III was announced last May, so i wouldn’t expect it earlier than May 2023.

Would i buy a 10 IV now, if i had the chance (and wait for more than six months for official SFOS)? Probably. Without the support? That i honestly don’t know. But i guess it’s a good phone, even with Android.

i faced this dilemma last year when the 10 III was on sale at black friday for £290.

never came back down to that price, ended up buying one eight months later for £330.

then again, i’m still using my XA2 four months after installing SFOS on the 10 III because I can’t get mobile data to work on the new phone…

Last year there was Xperia 10 III (lena) content in the public (mer-hybris) adaptation repos by Black Friday. That’s a 98% guarantee in my book.

There is nothing about the IV yet.

It’d be really nice to know, phone is like half price right now.

At Amazon Black Friday in Germany the Xperia 10 IV costs only 374€!

339€ is a really good price…

Xperia 10 IV seems to 299e in Finland currently.

£299 on amazon.co.uk

That’s sad that we don’t have any answer on the Xperia 10 IV sailfish OS port because the Xperia is at a special discount price on Amazon at the moment so we’re gonna miss the opportunity to have one at a cheap price.

I have taken the gamble at 341€ for the Lavender colored one :heart_eyes:

no need to hurry, they are available till march, usually
although 300 euro is a good price to “buy now, think later”

If the 10 iv’s spec’s are identical to the 10 iii with the exception of the chip shouldn’t it be possible to run sfos ?

“…with the exception of the chip”… You’re joking, right? :slight_smile:
