Jolla Phone specs and android compatibilty officially annnouced

Finland based Jolla Mobile has officially announced android app compatibility and technical specifications for their first smartphone.

For the uninitiated Jolla is a smartphone project started by a group of ex Nokia employees working on Nokia N9’s Meego OS and who wanted to create a phone experience that is truly open and liberating. The phone will be based on the same Meego based Sailfish OS, but will have support for android apps though a runtime. As such, like the Blackberry 10 OS, the developers can easily port the apps to the OS without much sweating. Though there won’t be a Play Store support, but if enough people get on the bandwagon, a market place can be made quite easily.

Apart from this, the phone will be gesture controlled, that is being touted as easy to use and intuitive. They also promise a unique functionality like the OS’s look and feel changing based on the colour of the backcover being used.

The full hardware specs of the phone are as follows:

  • 1.4GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB of RAM 16GB of internal storage
  • 4.5-inch “Estrade” 960 x 540 display
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 2MP front camera
  • 2,100 mAh battery
We are looking for aspiring bloggers and journalists for The Mukt. If you are interested, apply now!

The phone is currently priced at $540 for pre order and shipping is expected to begin by the end of this year.

Tech Enthusiast, dreamer, slightly insane and does things little differently than normal.
