Jolla C Smartphone with Sailfish OS 2.0 Launched at EUR 169



Jolla, the maker of Sailfish OS, had launched a couple of hardware devices to push its in-house OS. The company launched the Jolla smartphone and Jolla Tablet, but it failed to ship the tablet for those who pre-ordered. Though the company said to refund the money, it’s still not happened. Jolla also faced huge financial crisis last year where it couldn’t able produce the devices.

There are a couple of manufacturers who already announced to ship smartphones with Sailfish OS. Turing Robotics’s Turing Phone switched from Android to Sailfish OS citing the security issues. Intex is the another manufacturer which had announced its first Sailfish OS running device Intex Aqua Fish at MWC 2016. It said to be launched in April but haven’t yet made available in the market.

A few months back, the company raised $12 million in funding which makes them sustainable till the year end. More than selling the hardware devices, the company is intended to work on Sailfish OS and is looking to make money by licensing it. The Sailfish OS supports Android apps but doesn’t come with Play Store, though there will be few compatibility issues.

Now Jolla launched a new Jolla C Limited Edition smartphone that will be available only in 1,000 units. It will be available only for developers and enthusiasts from the newly announced Sailfish OS community. The device is priced at EUR 169 (approx $189 / Rs. 12,700) in Finland and will be only shipped to EU countries along with Norway and Switzerland starting from July.

According to the company, it gives early access to developers to try the latest Sailfish OS and its features. It comes with entry-level specifications and is said to run the Sailfish OS 2.0 without any lags. The device features a 5-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) display and comes powered by Snapdragon 212 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz.

It includes 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage that can be expanded additionally upto 32GB via MicroSD card slot. The Jolla C is backed by a 2,500mAh battery that might not last more than a day of usage. In the camera department, it packs an 8MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and a 2MP front camera for selfies.It measures 142 x 72 x 9.6 mm and weighs 150 grams.
