Orange has had a lot of success in the Android marketplace with it's own branded devices. Since the launch of the Orange San Francisco it has made a big name for itself and helped the manufacturer ZTE become well known to consumers in the UK. Whilst the Orange Monte Carlo wasn't as well received as the San Francisco, Orange are hoping that users will take to it's upcoming device the San Francisco II. Based upon the ZTE Crescent, the San Francisco II is aimed at the budget market providing decent hardware specifications for a low price.
Whilst the price isn't known, what we do know is that the phone will be shipped running Android 2.3 and running on an 800MHz CPU - possibly a Qualcomm powered MSM7227 chip.
- OS: Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- Camera: 5 Megapixel
- Display: 3.5inch 800x480 WVGA TFT, 262k colours
- Memory: 512MB
- CPU: 800MHz (possibly MSM7227)
Will this device be as popular as the San Francisco was and will Orange & ZTE have another hit on their hands?
Orange leaked information about the device onto it's help & support section, possibly in time for a Christmas release (screenshot after the break!)
