New intelligent back covers with NFC for the Jolla smartphones

Jolla’s first smartphone just might be the most intriguing of all smartphones announcements and what makes the phone special is the Jolla’s The Other Half. This new feature is as interesting as it sounds; it is an intelligent phone back which gets help from the NFC to alter the phone’s software automatically. We don’t much about how this interesting feature works because there are a few early owners and even they haven’t gotten the chance to try this feature since Jolla just started selling these mind blowing phone covers. For those who want to try out this NFC enabled phone back can find it on the website of Jolla.

There are two variants in the phone cover but both are priced at $40. You can get one in Aloe or Keira Black shell. With both the phone backs, the system sounds and wallpapers will automatically be changed to match the theme. And if this doesn’t make you happy, you can take over and design one of your own. Jolla has released a developer kit which has inside a 3D printer file and to help you along the way there are software instructions as well as some technical specs. This is an amazing option for those who can’t wait for the actual product to ship in the European countries.
