For some reason, someone built a new Sailfish OS phone Even though Sailfish OS creator Jolla has had its fair share of challenges in the past two years (including a failed tablet and a near bankruptcy) it appears that its operating system lives on.
Russian phone maker Plural has released its new Oysters SF phone powered by Sailfish, thanks to a partnership with Jolla.

Here are the full specs:

5-inch 720p display
MediaTek MT6753 ARM Cortex-A53 octa-core processor
2GB of RAM
16GB of storage
13-megapixel rear camera
5-megapixel front-facing camera
microSD slot
3,000 mAh battery

Regardless, the smartphone world has been and will always be a two-horse race.

Absolute horsepuckey. Any definite predictions of the tech marketplace 10 years out are quite suspect, much less for all time.

I don't think it is meant to be a flagship killer.

Very true, in fact it hasn't always been a 2 horse race; there was a time when BlackBerry, iOS, Android, and even Windows were all legitimate contenders. Now Apple has been dropping the ball for years and Android is pulling away...it may be just one horse soon, and then suddenly there will be 3 or 4 new horses when google starts to drop balls.
