Geeksphone’s Revolution to offer Ubuntu Touch: Report

Spanish mobile start-up Geeksphone is reportedly in discussions with Canonical to offer Ubuntu Touch in its new phone, the ‘Revolution’. Featuring a 4.7-inch IPS display, the dual-OS running smartphone was released last month.

The dual-core Intel-based smartphone currently packs two operating systems – Android Jelly Bean and an unbranded version of Mozilla Firefox OS.

At this year’s Mobile World Congress, a Geeksphone spokesperson revealed to tech blog DigitalTrends that the company is “in talks with Canonical and Jolla, and could offer a choice of all four operating systems – Android, Firefox OS, Ubuntu Mobile, and Sailfish OS – on the Revolution. Booting between all of them would be great, but even just the option to buy a phone and then chose which OS to install is very intriguing.”

The handset features a 4GB of expandable internal memory, 1GB of RAM, and an 8MP primary camera alongside a 1.3MP front-facer. All of this is powered by a 2,000 mAh battery.

Though the company claims it to be a dual-boot phone, it’s not…at least, not yet. The phone does run Android and Firefox, but not side-by-side or at the same time.

Geeksphone also plans to bring “a true dual-boot system” in the future.
