After overcoming the crisis and healed budgets, Jolla has decided to devote himself exclusively to the development of Sailfish OS and smartphones, but earlier this year the Finnish company announced its cooperation with Intex to launch a new terminal on the Indian market , based on its own operating system. And Aqua Fish is now on sale for 5499 rupees, about 75 euro.
Intex smartphone is one of the first devices with Sailfish OS signed by a company other Jolla and could not be the last. In the yard, there would also Oysters SF produced and built by a Russian company and, in short, the security specialist and privacy Turing Phone that in this period is over to those who carried out the pre-order.
Intex Aqua Fish is a smartphone with entry-level technical specifications, and price low-cost. It features a 5-inch IPS HD display (1280 x 720 pixels), Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage with a microSD card slot, 8 megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front, with battery 2500 mAh.

Sailfish OS is based on Linux with a unique user interface, it supports navigation through gestures and the ability to run some Android applications as well as native ones for Sailfish. Although Jolla not had great success selling its smartphone with this operating system, it is likely that the response of users to terminals such as Intex Aqua Fish and Turing Phone is different decreeing (or not) a future for Sailfish OS as an alternative to Android and iOS (or less popular solutions such as Windows Mobile 10, Tizen, Blackberry OS, Ubuntu Phone and so on)
