Jolla to start shipping its Sailfish OS based smartphone from November 27


Earlier this year, in the month of May, Jolla unveiled its first smartphone which runs the Sailfish OS. Since then the device has been up for pre-order but the launch of the smartphone has been a mystery. Recently, at an event in Helsinki the company has revealed that the smartphone will finally start shipping from November 27.

This smartphone is called Jolla, and it is the first phone from the company which was started by some ex-Nokia engineers. The device sports a 4.5-inch qHD resolution display which has Gorilla Glass 2 protection. It is powered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz and includes 1GB of RAM.

Apart from the aforementioned the device includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity features. It includes an 8 megapixel rear camera and a secondary front facing 2 megapixel camera. It is equipped with a 2,100 mAh battery which is rated to provide up to 7 hours of talk time and 500 hours of standby time.

Obviously the smartphone will come pre-loaded with the new Sailfish OS which will offer Nokia’s HERE mapping application and also include the Yandex.Store which is an app store for Android offering more than 85,000 applications including Angry Birds, Twitter, Skype, Facebook and many others.

The device will be sold in partnership with Finnish network operator DNA and it will be priced at €399. The availability of the device in other regions is not yet announced.
