Geeksphone isn’t a new new name in the mobile space. They currently have several lower-end devices available with Firefox OS, but it looks like they may soon be stepping up on some specs. Not to mention, throwing Android in the mix. Geeksphone has been teasing a handset called the “Revolution” and so far have asked those curious to “stay tuned.”
First things first though, the Geeksphone Revolution will be powered by Intel. The company has yet to reveal a full set of specs for the handset, having so far offered a bit in terms of specifics along with a teaser about how the revolution will be a “creation with a powerful heart.” In this case that means a 1.6GHz Intel Z2560 processor. While not a traditional dual-boot setup, it seems the Revolution will be running Android and offering the option for users to install Firefox OS.
Other details for the handset include a 4.7-inch IPS display with a qHD (960 x 540) resolution, memory card slot, 2000 mAh battery and 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with flash. So far there was nothing mentioned in terms of the RAM or the internal storage. Some of the other points missing are the price and a specific release date. Geeksphone has said the Revolution is coming in early 2014.
The other big mystery comes in with the looks. Geeksphone has yet to release any images of the handset and so far, has gone with the image sitting above on the company website. For now, it looks like this is one topic with emerging details and one that we will be keeping an eye on as we move into the new year.
