More Jolla smartphone specifications have been officially revealed on the Jolla Mobile Facebook page. The list provides more details as compared to the set that the Sailfish OS creator published yesterday.
Jolla smartphone specifications
The Jolla smartphone specifications include the Linux-based Sailfish operating system, live multitasking, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 1 GB of RAM, and a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running at 1.4GHz. Adding to the list is a 4.5-inch qHD multi-touch display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, as well as protection by Gorilla Glass 2. It also comes with a microSIM card slot, support for GSM, 3G, and 4G LTE in a still-unrevealed limited list of countries and operators, an 8 MP primary camera with Auto Focus and LED Flash, and a 2 MP secondary camera. It offers The Other Half expandability with smart covers and extension interfaces for power in/out, wireless NFC, and 12C data connectivity. As Jolla Mobile announced recently, the device is compatible with Android apps, but will not arrive with Google Play.
Jolla Mobile may continue revealing more details little by little until the device is launched. However, it is now becoming clear that Jolla is not interested in impressing consumers with a flashy set of specifications that will rival the flagship smartphone offerings of more popular manufacturers. Rather, it appears that the Finland-based company’s focus is truly on its operating system and its “easy-to-use, gesture-based” features.
The Jolla smartphone is due for release before the year ends. Currently, interested consumers may pre-order the device for the price of 400 Euros on Jolla’s website.
Online, the device has gotten mixed reactions. Some are excited about the operating system that provides an alternative to the more established names. Others also underscore that its Android app compatibility gives Jolla and Sailfish OS an advantage over the other operating systems that attempt to challenge Android and iOS. Meanwhile, others have expressed their skepticism over the list of specifications, particularly the qHD resolution of the display. What’s your take on the Jolla smartphone?
