Development statusLaunched for Community and Developers

Jolla C is a limited-edition mobile phone by Jolla geared toward Community and Developers with Sailfish OS and no third-party applications installed by factory, so called "purest Sailfish OS". It is the first dual SIM device from Jolla, whose hardware specification is nearly identical to Aqua Fish released later on by Intex Technologies, only with different cellular bands set. It is compatible with Android apps.[3][4]

Purest Sailfish OS for development and debugging[edit]

Absence of 3rd party software helps, mainly developers, to test and observe behaviour of developed code software without interferences from other non-system software. Also this model is for betatesting and validation of OS upgrades to find and eliminate in daily use eventual bugs before they will be distributed as update of the OS. For that purpose it will be receiving all new parts of OS code with early release mechanism intended for community members or developers involved in OS development. They are also available for other devices but only after user's declaration and not by default. This also means that unpredictable risk of using beta-tested OS elements and eventual consequences is possible in this particular model - for some this is what is attractor and advantage of the Jolla C model.

Availability via site[edit]

It was offered from 25 May 2016 via Jolla site for those who registered for The Sailfish community device program there.

  • On the 25 May 2016 for the first time it was offered limited batch of 1000 items for targeted group via Jolla's web site and it was sold out within 7 hours.[citation needed]
  • On the 14 June 2016 in response to demands the second batch of 500 devices was offered at Jolla site and sold out within 15 minutes.[citation needed]
