  • Sailfish OS India (Intex, India) for Intex Aqua Fish
    - Latest public: Sailfish OS IND, released on October 27, 2017
    - This operating system is based on Sailfish OS core by Jolla, Finland. It differs from the original by having additional commercial home screen on the right side of the main home screen. It also supports Android apps by default, a feature which is separately enabled by user in the original Sailfish OS.
    - Note: Intex is not releasing another Sailfish OS device for the markets in India. Intex Aqua Fish is no longer available either. It's uknown for how long time Intex will provide software updates for the device owners.

For AquaFishes appearing as Jolla C, see the latest update from above: Sailfish OS (Jolla, Finland).

Mobile devices

  • Youyota Tablet - Crowdsourced campaign started on July 5, 2017 to produce Sailfish OS powered copy of Jolla Tablet under new brand "Youyota". With slightly better battery capacity and new color red for 64GB model, all other HW being exactly the same, this tablet is pushed for production by community member "Chenliang Chen" and his partner "Michael Du" via Indiegogo.
    - The project has reached its financial goal, and tablets are expected to be shipped in the first half of December 2017, four months late from the original schedule. Of course, possible delays are quite common in crowdsourced projects, but at least this project is not dependent on any design related issues, hardware and software already being tested earlier.
    - The campaigners updates information here.
  • Lumo video security phone
    - 16.5.2017 Oulumo and Jolla announced co-operation to develop next generation video carephone. Find more at blog.jolla.com/oulumo
  • Devices- Page lists already available models, past models, officially and unofficially supported models (unofficials limited to the most functional ports) and rumors about other models


  • Related to the Indiegogo campaign by Youyota (see above), the perks in the campaign include Youyota branded sleeveBluetooth keyboard and a Protection Cover supporting attachment of the keyboard with magnets. These accessories would fit for both Youyota and Jolla Tablet
  • Since Jolla is currently purely focused on software, there are no new accessories expected from them for any of the Sailfish OS devices. Community projects and other 3rd party projects are, however, still possible
