Most of you have probably heard of a Finnish company called Jolla. This company has released several devices, including two smartphones and a tablet. These three devices were fueled by the company's Sailfish OS, which seemed really interesting at first, but considering how competitive the market is in that regard, devices powered by this OS didn't manage to make a huge impact on the market. Jolla didn't manage to sell a lot of devices, but the company is not giving up on their OS it seems, read on.

Intex is an India-based company which introduced a Sailfish-powered smartphone at this year's Mobile World Congress. This smartphone is called Intex Aqua Fish (also called Jolla Aqua Fish), and it seems like another Sailfish-powered device is on its way. The Oysters SF smartphone will hit the Russian market soon, at least according to the source. This is a mid-range smartphone, and we presume it will be quite affordable, though the company still didn't share any such info thus far. The Oysters SF is a rather compact smartphone, it sports a 5-inch display, though we still don't know what will its resolution be. This device is fueled by MediaTek's MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor, along with the Mali-T720 MP3 GPU. The phone is also equipped with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card). The 13-megapixel camera is placed on the back of this device, and a 5-megapixel snapper can be found up front. The 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and the phone will offer 4G LTE connectivity as well (LTE Cat. 4). The phone measures 141 x 71.5 x 9mm, while it weighs 140 grams.

Now, the design of this phone is really nothing special, we've seen similar designs before. The black bars surrounding the display seem to be quite thick, especially on the sides, and the phone sports three capacitive buttons below the display, as you can see. The power / lock and volume rocker buttons are placed on the right-hand side of this phone, and the company's logo is located on the back of the device. Speaking of which, this phone's back seems to sport some sort of a pattern which looks really nice in white, and might help with the grip. The Oysters SF also sport a metallic frame, and its edges are slightly chamfered.
