Jolla, a well-known company was founded by ex-Nokia employees in 2011 (great time to jump of the sinking ship). They have formed a tie-up with Snapdeal to retail its smartphones in India and would launch its first smartphone on September 23.
Jolla is basically popular because its smartphones run on Salifish operating system which is “completely open-source”, according to the company. The main attraction of Salifish OS is that it is completely based on gestures, supporting swipes and shortcuts, and customizable interface. Salifish OS’ multi-tasking allow users to see all the running apps on one screen, which is not available on any other current mobile OS. It doesn’t support Google Play Store but you can download Android apps via Yandex and Aptoide Stores. You can also explore other third-party Android marketplaces.
The Operating System Salifish completely depends on gestures for navigation and so it doesn’t have navigation buttons on top like other OSes. The gestures become better and adapts over time based on the users’ habits.
Jolla’s smartphone is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM. It has a 4.5-inch IPS qHD display with 5-point multi-touch support and Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection over the display. It houses a 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 2-megapixel front facing camera for selfies and video calling. The international model supports 4G but we are not sure if it will come to the Indian version as well.
