Jolla’s SailFish OS may be available on Samsung devices soon

A Jolla engineer tweeted earlier today that Jolla’s SailFish OS would be available on Samsung devices “soonish.” Jolla was created in 2011 by ex-Nokia engineers who worked on its ill-fated MeeGo platform. The SailFish OS comes with a modern, clean design and is focused on enhancing the user experience. Currently, only Jolla’s handset comes with the SailFish OS installed by default. However, the manufacturer has tried offering the OS for Android devices, with a successful port created for both the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 4.

This time around, it looks like Jolla is targeting old Samsung handsets. In the tweet, Jolla’s engineer mentions that it is unwise to exchange an old Samsung device for a Lumia handset, as these devices would be getting the SailFish OS soon. There is no further information available, but if Jolla does make a Sailfish port for Samsung handsets, it would be a great alternative to the default TouchWiz skin. SailFish is an interesting choice, as it allows users to load Android apps and utilities thanks to a custom Android runtime.
