Nokia published the documents at the FCC for the Nokia 2.1 Plus. Nice to run Sailish on a budget smartphone and cool to have a Nokia branded phone running Sailfish OS.

Who would want one? Or would you prefer a Sony XA2 phone?

One question as a n00b; how is this relevant for the phone hw? Is the kernel available?

EDIT : indeed it is available (the kernel) : https://nokiapoweruser.com/hmd-releases-kernel-source-code-for-nokia-2-1-and-nokia-5-1/

EDIT #2 : would this mean official support by Jolla? or community port?

Given the choice I'd rather take SFOS on sirocco :)

@tortoisedoc:

Regarding the kernels, yes, Nokia 2.1, 3.1 and 5.1 kernels are released in the open source domain.

Concerning the hardware, the Nokia 2.1 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 with Adreno 308. For comparison, the Sony XA2 Plus has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 with Adreno 508. So support should be not too hard. The Nokia 3.1 and 5.1 have a MediaTek / Mali CPU/GPU combo. Less easy to connect with official support, I think.

Talking about support, it would be awesome if Jolla can give official support. So for this poll, yes, with official Jolla support :)

@luen, Sure, no problem, changed to wiki

Whaaaaaaaa... is this the real life? And tell me that it has doubletap to wake and all the awesomeness of Jolla 1 (still using it after 4 years).

Also not for me. Sony has better hardware and two screen sizes to choose in the xa2 range. So no need to waste Jolla's resources.

Well as per the device compared to Sony XA2, it is nothing to write home about, was hoping that the device size would be below the 5" category so we jolla phone users would not have to learn how to use both hands for sailfish operation but it is not. The only advantage I can come up with is the expansion of Sailfish powered devices, aside that it is not all that interesting to me

As any subject, it's not possible to have everything there is alwyas compromise and as you can see smartphone industry are moving away from easy one hand usable sizes.

I would also like little bit smaller phone but as I said we can't get everything :/ 5 inch screen as xperia x have is ok for me, but no larger please!

@Jk my point exactly, I am currently using a Xaomi Redmi note 4 MTK chipset (not supported for community port for sailfish while the Qualcomm equivalent is ), the 5.5" screen is frustrating to use and quite heavy compared to my faulty Jolla phone. 5" is the only next door neighbor for me, anything bigger is not convenient. Compromise yes, but a wide range should make all sizes available to us all depending on our needs
