Just as Antti Saarnio did promise Jolla revealed more specifications of Jolla Phone alongside with second pre-order campaign for Finland. So lets look what hardware will power the worlds best OS.
Lets start with screen.
We knew before that screen will be Ample 4.5” Jolla Estrade display, but now we know resolution, which is qHD (Quarter-HD) and that is 960 x 540 pixels. If my calculations are correct that is 244.77 PPI pixel density, compared to 251 ppi pixel density on N9. We still don’t know will there be some glass scratch protection as Gorilla Glass.
UPDATE: Jolla confirmed that LCD touchscreen will be protected with Gorilla Glass 2!
We all know Jolla Phone won’t be true camera phone, as many of you are expecting that because of excellent camera phones from Nokia but Jolla will provide us decent camera on Jolla. 8MP AutoFocus camera will be enough for most of us. There will also be single LED flash on the back. Now we know more about front facing camera which will be 2MP.
Now we have more details about processor. Jolla Phone will be powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon Dual-Core which is clocked on 1.4GHz.
Sailfish OS and apps should work smoothly on 1GB of RAM memory, but I am bit concerned about how smoothly will Android apps work as they tend to require lot of RAM memory. For storage there is 16GB plus extension via MicroSD cards.
We don’t have exact numbers about battery duration but we have battery specifications. It will be 2100mAh, 3.8V, 7.98Wh battery which is user removable.
UPDATE: The Other Half specifications
Jolla finally shared more details about #TheOtherHalf. It is actually Wireless NFC (smart) cover with power IN/OUT and I2C data connectivity. More about I2C you can watch here:
That is all about new specifications, other are known from before and include LTE connectivity, 3.5MM audio jack, MicroUSB port.
I you are not impressed with phone specifications please remember, it is not about processor, memory and big numbers as long as Sailfish is capable to run smoothly on the given hardware. And we all saw how Sailfish runs on a 2011 hardware.
Also, both first and second pre-order are targeted to ship by the end of 2013.
