You can be forgiven for not remembering Jolla. The little company formed by ex-Nokia employees got popular for using arguably the best-looking OS Nokia ever used, Meego a few years ago.
While we may have forgotten all about it now (we’ll never forget the N9), they are back with a new phone dubbed the Jolla C.
The new phone comes with a 5” display with 720p resolution, barely usable for today. The processor in the Jolla C is a lowly Qualcomm Snapdragon 212.
You also get 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage and an 8 MP camera at the back. Connectivity includes 4G LTE while the battery capacity is set at 2,500 mAh. The design follows the same block-like language much appreciated in previous phones.
The phone runs the second iteration of the Sailfish OS which is based on Meego, and supports Android apps just fine.
More important is the new Sailfish Community Device Program, for which these phones will be made in limited number. Joining this will gain you access to its events, enhanced developer support and the Jolla C.
