Jolla may have failed to make an empire to rival Android with its Sailfish OS, but it’s changing direction with Sailfish 3 to focus on 4G feature phones.

Four years ago we previewed the original Sailfish OS.

It was pretty but has only been used in a handful of low-key devices since.

Jolla CEO Sami Pienimaki says its main aim is to function with “low-spec hardware configurations and still run selected Android apps,” as reported by NDTV.

It’s not so much an Android rival as an Android Go rival.

Google’s Android Go is a stripped-down version of Android optimized for devices with 1GB of RAM or less, like the Nokia 1.
