Hello Geeksters. As you may know, a Jolla enthusiast has torn apart his Jolla device and posted pictures of the hardware components on the TMO forum.
From the pictures, we can identify the the following:
- Screen, manufactured by Truly Electronics
- The “Micron MT42L256M32D2LK-18” DDR2 RAM
- The PMIC chip Qualcomm PM8038
- Audio Circuit Qualcomm WCD9304
- RF Amplifier Avago Technologies’ ACPM-7251
- NFC controller NXP Semiconductors PN544 (labeled 44701)
The user also adds that the aluminum from the front case is just a thin layer applied on plastic, while the buttons are made of plastic also.
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. Apps can be installed via the Jolla Store, which will provide both Jolla and Android apps, or via F-Droid, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
