Finns are taking the loss of Nokia's phone division hard but they still have Jolla to look forward to. The breakaway company posted some more specs on its upcoming phone.
The dual-core 1.4GHz processor and 1GB RAM in the phone are on a Snapdragon chipset and while Jolla didn’t give its exact model number, it's probably a SoC similar to the one in the HTC One mini.
The 4.5" qHD (960 x 540 pixels) screen will be of the IPS LCD variety and will feature 6-point multi-touch and Gorilla Glass 2 protection. There will be an RGB indicator too. The 8MP back camera and 2MP front-facing camera have two mics for sound recording and noise reduction.
On the connectivity side, there's Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 + HS, A-GPS with GLONASS, NFC and I2C for connectivity with extensions, which sounds pretty interesting. The only extension that Jolla has shown so far is the exchangeable back cover, but with I2C there are plenty of options to expand (e.g. a keyboard wouldn’t need to connect over Bluetooth).
The 2,100mAh battery is rated at 7.7/5.5 hours of 2G/3G talk time respectively and 500 hours of standby. Finally, the dimensions of the Jolla phone are 131 x 68 x 9.9mm and the weight is 141g.
The global pre-order for the Jolla is over, but Finns can still book one for €100. The total price of the handset is €400 (including VAT, the phone is unlocked).
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Indeed, the OS is the real culprit here and Sailfish blows Nadroid out of the water. The Nadroid app support is there to appeal to the scrubs who might otherwise pass on a wonderful phone, the rest of us know it's not necessary. Hardware is largely i...
