Hello Linux Geeksters. As a reminder, Jolla has presented at MWC 2014 a bunch of Android phones running with Sailfish OS, including the Samsung Galaxy S3 (i9305).

But the work did not stop there. New optimizations for Sailfish OS on Samsung Galaxy S3 have been added, since the MWC. For more information about this, see the video posted by Thomas Perl (one of the developers):

To my mind, Sailfish OS runs quite well on Samsung Galaxy S3 so Sailfish OS for Android smartphones may be available soon.

For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications.
