With the increasing traction for its open-source platform, Jolla, the company behind the Sailfish OS, has now launched the Jolla C smartphone.
Jolla has announced the launch of the Jolla C, which is the company’s latest smartphone running the Sailfish OS. The device has a 5 inch IPS display with resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The smartphone is powered by the quad core Snapdragon 212 processor with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage.
The Jolla C has an 8 MP rear facing auto focus camera with LED flash. There is also a front facing 2 MP camera. The device runs on the Sailfish OS 2.0 with compatibility for Android apps and a 2500 mAh battery. The phone has dual SIM support with 4G LTE connectivity. The handset is priced at 169 Euros (approx. Rs. 12500) and would be distributed through the Sailfish Community Device Program.
Speaking about the Jolla C, Sami Pienimäki, Co-founder, Jolla, said, “An active developer and fan community has always been a core part of Sailfish OS, and we want to thank all our fans for their passion and support throughout the years. The program was sold out quickly after the launch, which is a strong message of the willingness to change the world together. As the Sailfish OS licensing is expanding, the role of an active community gets even bigger. We are now investigating if we can extend the program beyond this.”
