Intex Aqua Fish is based on Sailfish OS
Not so long ago the Finnish company Jolla had a really interesting project going on – it wanted to market a new tablet based on the innovative mobile Sailfish OS. Unfortunately this project recently failed, leaving Jolla in the dark. Not everything has been lost, though – Sailfish OS is alive and kicking. In fact the Indian company Intex Technologies has just presented a Sailfish OS-based smartphone during MWC 2016.
The new device is called Aqua Fish. It comes with a 5-inch TFT display that works at 1280 x 720 pixels and houses an unknown quad-core Qualcomm processor that runs at 1.3 GHz. The smartphone also comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory plus there’s a microSD card slot for expansion. The device has two cameras too – one rear with 8 MP of sensitivity and another 2 MP front one. The connectivity options include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a GPS receiver, a micro-USB 2.0 port, and support for LTE. The Aqua Fish runs Sailfish OS 2.0 and gets powered by a 2500 mAh battery.
The Aqua Fish smartphone will be available in India in April of this year. The smartphone will be available in black or orange but as of now the price of the communicator is unknown, although there’s information it will be between USD 120 and USD 150. It is also unclear whether the Aqua Fish will be sold outside of India.
