So that's a Snapdragon 212 phone, a SoC which looks very similar to the
Snapdragon 400 used in the old Jolla. Though the second SIM slot is nice
to have.

Now the interesting question is if the design, uh, oversights of the
old Jolla phone have been fixed? That is,

* is the FM radio actually usable (internal antenna connected)?
* can the USB used in OTG mode?
* is the NFC sensor available for general usage, instead of being
  reserved to identify the other half?

of the other half has been kept.
