Does anyone know anything about this story?

A video of the Blackview BV6000 running the Russian Sailfish OS can be found on Youtube

Will it be available outside of Russia, with “global” Sailfish?

I'll just leave this here: a few weeks ago someone gave me an BlackView phone (A10 or something) and I found some preinstalled Spyware on this thing (also in the downloadable Update). Yeah, it was Android, but even with Sailfish, I would'nt trust a device with BlackView in the name.

Looking at the video, and not understanding Russian, it seems to be a rugged device, the type sometimes sold for special purpose business use. Meaning, it's extremely ugly and nobody would touch it if they had the choice :-)

There is one nice bit at the end: some rudimentary support for reading NFC tags. Nice to have this in Sailfish and hope this makes it to other devices (including the XA2) too. Bring back fond memories from my N9 days when I could easily share photos with my family :-)

Something is upsetting me. Jolla is feeding from Open Mobile Platform or is it the opposite?

I ask the question in a different way; Are there two branches of Sailfish, Finnish and Russian or only one?

perhaps, you can say so: there is main-sailfish from Jolla and there is some kind of authorized fork from omp.
