Will there ever be a China release of the phone? HW Specs/price wise, it's definitely not competitive with the local Android phone makers, and the recent statement about Sailfish OS that could be available for free on Android phones in China makes me wonder if Jolla has given up already.

Some people about to renew their phones would like to know if it's worth waiting...

I guess we'd like to save "roadmap" tag for sailors (they have used it to indicate issues that are on roadmap) , so I removed that tag from that question.

Just like a lot of info before the pre-order launch, this is a bit confirming/denying:

I think the idea of allowing sailfish OS for free on android phones is one of the main strategies to popularize the OS, giving them (hopefully) a good brand. It's not about giving up selling Jolla in China.
