that looks like the first prototype of the first jolla phone, before the design change (camera position, power and volume buttons):

My guess would be it is a CAD model of the Jolla Phone 1 with camera put in the wrong place... Rest looks pretty much like it.

That's a prototype which was first presented in Mai 2013 at "JollaLoveDay" to promote the Jolla Phone pre-order campaign.

It can also be seen in this rendered video:

Volume/Power-buttons were on the other side as well as different camera position - I think the screen bezel was bigger as well. One of the reasons, Jolla decided to change some stuff, could be the necessary quick switch to Qualcomm because ST-Ericsson stopped manufactoring the chip Jolla originally had chosen.

The JP-1301 wasn't crowdfunded.

Thanks & sorry. Should be pre-order, idk why I wrote crowdfunding :) Fixed it!
