Jolla, a Finnish company founded by former Nokia employees, announced its one and only Jolla smartphone in November last year and was launched in India only in September this year priced at Rs 16,499 and exclusively available on Snapdeal.
This new announcement could be a new smartphone adding to its insignificant portfolio or even a tablet. It could also be a possible upgrade to its Sailfish OS, which hasn’t received any rave reviews yet.
