Jolla Smartphone Will be Released on November 27

Jolla SmartphonesThe story of Sailfish operating system is a long one and apart from promising a new smartphone based on the platform, Jolla has left many of us woefully uninformed of exactly how it will be implemented. We have found out that the phone will arrive initially in Finland on November 27.

As the release date is getting close, new information about the device begins to trickle down and finally we get to see how the phone would compare with the competition. Obviously, neither the 4.5-inch 960 x 540 qHD display and 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor will make the phone stands out. The Browser mark puts the phone nearly at the bottom of benchmark list, which includes devices running Android, Windows Phone and iOS.

At 173rd position, the Jolla smartphone is nearly comparable to the old Samsung Nexus S. Other hardware details of the phone include 1GB of RAM, microSD card slot, 2100mAh battery and 16GB of internal storage. On the back, there’s an 8Mp camera with LED flash and autofocus. It is also equipped with 2Mp front-facing camera and interchangeable smart covers.

Jolla has also confirmed that the phone will be released in Helsinki on November 27
