Sailfish OS powers Intex Aqua Fish budget phone in India


The Finnish startup that couldn’t launch its tablet out to its backers is still pushing its software mission out to partners wherever it can get them.

In this case, it’s India’s Intex and the debut of its first Sailfish OS 2.0 phone, the Aqua Fish.

For the budget conscious, it may be a worthy phone — a Snapdragon 210 runs the show with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage (expandable by up to 32GB). There’s an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facer and you can view the pictures you take from the two on a five-inch, 720p screen. All of it fueled by a 2,500mAh battery. The phone runs for Rs. 5,499 ($82) on eBay.

In a heavily saturated budget market that’s been getting great uptake by Samsung, we wonder how much of a drop in the Indian bucket Jolla can drip.
