Jolla needs you to fund (and develop) it is subsequent pill

There’s only one caveat, nevertheless — you will should design and fund it your self. It is now up on Indiegogo with a $380,000 goal, and Jolla has stated that it is taking ideas from customers for options, with one of the best concepts up-voted to make the reduce, Reddit-fashion. These options will possible be software program tweaks or different particulars, as all the most important options look like locked down. It’s going to have a 7.eighty five-inch, 2,048 x 1,536 display, sixty four-bit Intel quad-core CPU, 32GB of upgradeable reminiscence, a 5-megapixel digital camera and a four,300 mAh battery.
