Well the phone actually costs €400, which may or may not convert to $500 when it's released outside of Europe. The specs aren't even fully clarified yet. A dual-core could still be an A15 based SoC or a Snapdragon S4, which would still be quite fast for a €400 phone. In any case, one has to take into account that Jolla is a low volume product from a startup and as such it's very likely they will get a worse deal than any of the large android OEMs on HW.
No announcement yet.
