Just wondering. It looks like a nice design, but I'm guessing it's a 6-inch beast...

Probably photoshopped.

Unfortunately I think you are right. That's exactly the phone I would like to have. Just screen on the front and clean black case.

A nice one, small and borderless. A dream :)

The nicer it looks, the worser it will work

Isn't it quite obvious that this is not a phone but just a render of the Sailfish 3 surface (it is plain 2D)? Jolla doesn't produce phones anymore and since this was the announcement of SF3 the purpose probably was to show just the OS desktop without the connection to a specific phone.

It's a non-existing one.

That's kind of silly - I'll never understand marketing... So, someone somewhere actually thinks that using a fake image of a non-existent phone will cause Jolla to make more money than the same shot of an actual phone that runs Sailfish? Either that's a totally ridiculous thought, and they should change it, and correct whoever came up with the idea, or it's actually true, and I live on a planet ruled by strange beings I don't understand ...

aka 'a render'.

Edz ( 2019-02-12 18:27:06 +0200 )edit

right, but 'render' typically refers to a phone that is at least possibly being worked on, right - (not a total fantasy)?

For me, it means an artist impression and also is a means to coat a wall with mortar. No doubt there are other meanings.

@Levone1 Why silly? Maybe you just didn't identify the 2D mobile desktop surface shown in the picture?
