Jolla today revealed Sailfish 3, a significant update to its Linux-based mobile operating system. Jolla is targeting Sailfish 3 at inexpensive devices, such as feature phones, PDAs, and similar hardware. Jolla says the updated platform is chock full of new functionality. To start, the platform is offering developers a handful of new APIs, providing new access to the camera, VPN, location, WebEngine, and crypto. It now supports the latest version of Qt with 30% faster performance. Many of the new tools focus on business users. For example, it packs full cloud integration, enhanced security (biometrics, device wipe), and corporate mobile device management. On the connectivity side, it brings expanded support for VoLTE and Bluetooth Low Energy. Sailfish 3 also introduces new themes and animations, and improves multitasking with a new top menu. Jolla says Sailfish 3 will roll out during the third quarter of 2018. Jolla, formed by former Nokia employees, had originally hoped Sailfish would become a rival to Android. For now, the company is focusing on Latin America, Russia, and China.
