Earlier this year, Finland-based startup Jolla had unveiled its first independently designed smartphone. Then, the company did not announce the internal specifications of the phone. Neither the name nor its price was revealed. Now it seems that Jolla is ready to share the internal specs of the device alongside pricing.
Powered by Sailfish OS, the first Jolla phone will have a 4.5-inch qHD Estrade display having resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. The phone will be powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM (expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card slot).
The Jolla phone will feature an 8-mega pixel rear facing camera with Auto Focus and LED Flash. Also add a 2-mega pixel front facing camera. The makers have also promised to add a 2,100 mAh Li Ion user-replaceable battery. The startup, hopes to sell first Jolla phone by December 2013. The Sailfish OS powered smartphone will cost consumers €399 (Rs 33, 486).
Earlier this week Jolla announced that the phone will be compatible with Android ecosystem and hardware.
"Jolla will cooperate with leading global app stores to ensure users can seamlessly download Android apps just as they would do on any Android device".
"For example, highly popular apps such as Instagram, WhatsApp and Spotify run directly on Sailfish OS. Also
Chinese WeChat - already with over 400 million users - runs on Sailfish OS," Jolla CEO Tomi Pienimäki, said in a press statement.
Here the question arises: According to Google norms, devices supporting other operating systems are not allowed to run Google Play store. This means that there is no chance to download Android based apps from Play store on Jolla smartphone. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
