Jolla announces a limited edition Jolla C smartphone

Jolla C announced for EUR 169

Jolla (pronounced Yolla), a Finnish phone maker, announced its second phone the Jolla C. The company also announces its new community. The Jolla C will sell for EUR 169 (approximately Rs. 12,657) in select European markets.

The Jolla C is available only through the company’s Sailfish Community Device Program. Those interested can sign up for it through Jolla’s official website. The number of participants is limited to one thousand and shipment of the Jolla C will begin in July 2016 to countries currently limited to Switzerland, Finland, and Norway.

The Jolla C has a 5.0-inch HD IPS display and runs the company’s own Sailfish OS. Powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, the Jolla C packs 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 2,500mAh replaceable battery.

The Jolla C is a dual-SIM phone and has an 8-megapixel primary camera with LED flash and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. Connectivity features include 2G, 3G, 4G LTE support, GPS and GLONASS, microUSB, and Bluetooth.

In 2012, Jolla announced to make smartphones running the Sailfish OS and invited developers to make apps for it. The first Jolla smartphone was launched in 2013 and made available worldwide in 2014. The Jolla Tablet was released in 2015 but later its supply stopped due to lack of sufficient funds.

The lacklustre Sailfish OS and the failed tablet have made the users wary about Jolla’s projects. Nevertheless, Jolla confirms that it reached its one thousand user limit to sign up for and purchase the Jolla C phone on Thursday.

The Jolla C will support Android apps, does not come with pre-loaded apps, and comes with no warranty over its device and accessories.
