Finnish mobile manufacturer, Jolla has signed an exclusive deal with the online shopping website Snapdeal.com to introduce their smartphone in the Indian markets.

Jolla smartphone runs on its own operating software called 'Sailfish', which is an offshoot of the MeeGo software that used to be found on old Nokia phones and acts as an open-source alternative to Google's Android mobile operating system, CNET reported.

However, the platform does work with existing Android smartphones and tablets, and Jolla claims it's a more secure OS for those seeking privacy.

The finnish firm has altered the OS to make it as 'gesture-sensitive' as possible. There are no navigation buttons on the Jolla phone, so taps, swipes, and various other gestures on the touchscreen are used to navigate the phone, the report said.
