Unfortunately, no, the order is fixed and similar to the Windows Explorer. From import help article:

Images in each folder are ordered by filename before applying other splitting criteria. But the order also takes the image "index" into account. The index refers to the digits at the end of the image filename. This effectively sorts the images Windows imports from the camera into a folder. E.g. images are sorted in numerical order, (e.g. image001.jpg, image002.jpg, ... image999.jpg, image1000.jpg, etc.)

Beta version of software also uses a number from the prefix for sorting. You could try and check if it fixes order for you.

Anyway, could you provide an example of your sorting order?

as You cas see it's not an alphabetical order

Ahh, did realize you are referring to this. We will apply the Explorer sorting here as well.
