There's a new Sailfish OS phone

The Oysters SF sticks with the ocean theme

Oysters SF

Intex released its Aqua Fish phone earlier this year that ran Sailfish OS, and now, Russian company Plural is releasing its Oysters SF phone. The new device, which is set to come out in Russia later this summer, also runs Sailfish OS and is the result of a partnership between Plural and Jolla, Sailfish's creators. The phone's specs likely won't prompt someone to seek out Oysters SF, but they aren't terrible, either. Here we go:

  • 5-inch display
  • MediaTek MT6753 ARM Cortex-A53 octa-core processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • microSD slot
  • 3,000 mAh battery

Jolla has released phones of its own, but the creation of Aqua Fish and Oysters SF could indicate a shift in the company's focus to partnerships. That would probably be for the best. Jolla planned to launch a tablet through crowdfunding this summer, but failed to develop it. It then opened up a refund submission form, which backers had to seek out and complete themselves. Maybe partnerships can save Sailfish from becoming the next Firefox OS. But nah, probably not.
