Not likely. It's Mediatek based and so far all the devices on the Sony Open Devices program have been Qualcomm Snapdragon based.

TechSpot says it's actually disabled in software, also for reasons. Would it work with alternative firmware? Who knows.
Apparently this is because HP have a US patent on power buttons that are also fingerprint readers.

I thought the "reasons" were something like that but my hunch was it broke some Apple patent. Thanks for the info!

Just a rant about poor communication of companies what a port supports.

Xperia X is one of them. All of the recent X's are. And some older Z's. Also, SONY wanted to update some other also but then google stopped that because of some BS requirements or something. It's not always OEM fault that device doesn't get the update. At the end of the day they all have to play by google rules or no google services.
My nephew was showing me his new Nexus 6P the last time he was in town. I remember the last phone he had was a Motorola. He claimed that he switched to Nexus because their Google and they get the updates faster.

Bonus that the Xperia actually looks almost as good as the N9 as well.

There has to be another shoe to drop right? Lol
I agree as I am also a proud owner of an N9 in the US.

Will Jolla only produce enough for the community based on an International or European version or if we tell them where we are when ordering, can we get the US version of the Xperia? Considering Sony does make different versions of the Xperia X.

"latest dalvik included". What does that mean? What is the last existent dalvik? The one in Jolla C (4.4.4)? Is there any other version out there? Are they (Jolla, Sony or Myriad) working in a new updated version?

Hopefully, it's based on 6.0 with ability to deny permissions to apps.
