Jolla’s first smartphone’s hardware had support for 4G LTE connectivity, but the OS itself was released without support for that connection. The latest update – the seventh since the device was made available to the public seven months ago – now fixes that alongside the introduction of plenty of new features.
Besides system-wide support for 4G LTE connections, update 7 of Sailfish OS – codenamed Saapunki – also adds plenty of new features onto the platform. The app drawer now supports folders, while two-way synchronization of Google contacts is also finally implemented. Besides that, Facebook notifications on the Events view can also be acted upon, letting users like or comment from the notification itself. The browser also now remembers your last position and no longer reloads the tab content after you leave the tab.
There are plenty more additional features, but in addition to that Jolla has also added over a hundred bug fixes. The full changelog of the 173MB update can be viewed in the support page here.
Also, the Jolla smartphone also recently got a permanent price cut of €50, while a coupon code adds in an additional €10 off, leaving the final retail price at €339 (about RM1470). However, you *still* can’t get it anywhere on this side of the world – though we also understand that there are some Malaysian owners of the Jolla device here.
