Jolla offers two new options of The Other Half backplates – black and green
The Other Half back covers for Jolla phone in green and black
The Jolla phone is the first smartphone running on Sailfish OS but that is not the only interesting thing about it. The handset sports a sleek design with unique appearance and interchangeable back plates that have more purposes than just refresh the look of the device. The company Jolla named them The Other Half when it first announced the phone. The special about the removable rare panels is that they arrive with NFC chip integrated in them. This means that the changing of the back plates can change the interface and settings in a very easy and fast way. “The Other Half” accessories are scratch resistant and can be attached easily to the phone. Until now Jolla was offering only white interchangeable back plates. Since some days ago, users of Jolla phone can find on the market an aloe-green and black back covers.
The price of the new accessories is €29 (equal to $39). The possibilities that The Other Half accessories give are not exceptional, but are focus more on cosmetic customization of the phone. For example, users can change wallpapers, ringtones, system sounds etc. They enrich the user experience by providing the possibilities for customization. The concept for the integrating of NFC chip in the back plates has a great potential that the company will be developing in the coming years.
Users can take advantage from the two new interchangeable rare panels while developers will enjoy the special kit for The Other Half. They have the chance to work on the concept and to enrich it with more and more possibilities that will some day allow changing of the settings of the device just by replacing the back plate. The new rare panels are already available for purchase from the official Jolla store. The black cover is listed HERE, while the green can be ordered from HERE.
