So far, Jolla kept mum about the hardware specs of its first smartphone, which is still expected to be launched end of this year but Jolla somehow asked interested parties to order the pig in a poke. It was known that it comes with Jolla's own Sailfish OS, the the phone - which has still no official name - features a touchscreen, that the battery cover is exchangeable and since earlier this week we also knew that the phone archived Android compatibility. However, today Jolla unveiled a glimpse of what the phone will be about. According to the Facebook posting, it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core CPU, the touchscreen will be a 4.5" qHD (960x540) "Jolla Estrade display" and the main camera supports 8 megapixel while the front facing camera supports 2 megapixel.

Furthermore it's said that the device comes with a user-replaceable 2100 mAh battery, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB of flash memory. All this is targeted to ship by end of 2013.

Cheers ~ Arne

That's so lame and a typical Nokia device of the past. Qualcomm CPU? Check! Touchscreen? Check! Proprietary OS? Check! Guys, it needs more than this! You have to be first class to be recognized!

Only real downer is the display resolution at this point. If they are able to provide good RAM-management the 1GB should be enough. Let's see how it performs wink

I agree, the screen resolution seems to be a little bit too low! Have expected 720p which is pretty much standard today. RAM shouldn't be a problem, if Sailfish OS is smart enough. On the other hand they are talking about "true multitasking" which means the apps are all running in the background. Then, 1 GB could be a problem, especially if you use a lot of Android apps. Well, we'll see!
