Although the Sailfish-powered tablet is dead and its stint in the hardware business is over, Jolla will soon bounce back with a new smartphone powered by its Linux-based mobile operating system.

Although Jolla was already considered a thing of the past, the company now bounces back thanks to its mobile operating system and a two partnerships. First, Intex will release the Sailfish OS-powered Aqua Fish smartphone. Second, Mi-Fone will take this Linux-based operating system to Africa. There are no details available on the terms of these partnerships yet, but it looks like the Aqua Fish handset should hit India by the end of April.

According to NDTV, Jolla/Intex Aqua Fish is expected to have the following specs and features:

  • Processor: quad-core 1.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC (no model mentioned for now)
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage
  • Display: 5-inch multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels
  • Battery: 2500 mAh

No other details are available right now, and the official press release by Jolla does not reveal any specs and features of the upcoming handset. We will most likely get back to it in April, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
