Developed by Jolla, Sailfish is a Linux-Based operating system meant for mobile devices. According to Jolla, the brand new OS unlike its existing competitors is expected to make things a lot easier, as it acquires an entirely gesture-based interface. Moreover, the OS will also let you switch between active applications right from your home screen.
Having a closer look, the part of its interface might remind you of the Windows Phone OS, especially the multitasking menu. The most notable change is the lock screen. If you are an Android user, you are quite aware of the battery life indicator and the signal indicator at the top right corner of the display. In case of Sailfish, these indicators are present on the lock screen itself right in the center.
Something that is sure to cheer you up is the fact that the Sailfish OS will also support Android applications. One thing that might take you by surprise is its ability to let you operate a few of its features without even wanting you to look at the device. However, not too much is known about the feature yet, but you can surely expect something that can make you say “awesome”. The operating system was developed with a sole motive of helping you interact with the device effortlessly by making multitasking a lot more simple.
For now, the operating system will only be used in smartphones developed by Jolla but will soon be featured in devices such as desktop computers, laptops, smart TVs, cameras, tablets and navigation systems.
There is no word yet on whether the Jolla smartphones will enter the Indian market this year or the next. The phone comes with a price tag of 399€. Pre-order a handset and enjoy a discount of 100€. Cool! Isn’t it?
