There is a new mobile phone available in India. The Intex Sailfish device runs a Linux based operating system and has an ARM CPU. This apparently supports Android *.apk packages, allowing the installation of Android apps. This phone could possibly run normal Linux applications as well as dedicated apps for the phone. This phone features.
- Snapdragon 212, 1.3 GHz quad core.
- 2 GB or RAM.
- 16GB internal storage.
- 32 GB removable MicroSD storage.
- 720p screen.
- 8 Megapixel camera.
- Dual MicroSIM
- And 4G connectivity.
Not very impressive compared to a Samsung Galaxy Note, but not bad for a budget mobile phone.
There is a good variety of apps available and this would be a good option if you cannot afford a higher-end mobile device. But cheaper pre-paid mobile phones in Australia have higher specs than this. The Linux operating system is a selling point though. And Android has full terminal access when the user installs an app called Termux, this offers a fully featured bash shell that does not require root access on your device.
