FINNISH PHONE MAKER Jolla has finally revealed the full specifications for its debut Sailfish OS smartphone, just a day after the handset went back up for pre-order.
Jolla took to Facebook to announce the full specifications for its customisable Sailfish smartphone. The firm clearly is looking to challenge its big name rivals with its phone's specifications, as it has revealed that the phone will feature a 4.5in 960x540 AMOLED display, a user-replaceable 2,100mAh battery and a dual-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
Those who have already pre-ordered can also expect to find 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card, a 2MP front-facing camera and support for 4G LTE, although it's still unclear whether it will support all 4G networks in the UK.
With the Sailfish mobile operating system onboard, the phone will also be compatible with Android applications, although it won't have native access to the Google Play store.
"For example, highly popular apps such as Instagram, Whatsapp and Spotify run directly on Sailfish OS," said Jolla CEO Tomi Pienimäki. "Also Chinese Wechat - already with over 400 million users - runs on Sailfish OS."
The software, which is based loosely around Nokia's now-defunct Meego operating system, also delivers an easily customisable user interface and is predominantly gesture controlled.
Jolla's debut Sailfish smartphone is expected to start shipping later this year, although there are availability details yet. However, it is available to pre-order for €399. µ
