ZTE has been showing a Firefox OS phone here at MWC. The handset is the ZTE Open C, and it will bring a 4-inch WVGA display size and a variety of colors. The handset isn’t sporting the highest of specs but that is more about the market this device is headed than anything else.
You can expect the ZTE Open C to arrive in emerging markets. And as such, it will likely be priced accordingly. More to the point for today, while made of plastic, the handset doesn’t feel overly cheap. Of course, there is no mistaking this device — one is not going to assume it falls into any high, or even mid-range device category.
You’ll find v1.3 of Firefox OS with a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor. There is also 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a 1400 mAh battery and 3 megapixel rear-facing camera. Users can also expect to find WiFi, 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, an accelerometer and GPS.
One possible perk for some may come with the colors. ZTE has said there will be a variety of six, including the red you see here in the post. Otherwise, as you can likely see from the images, the Open C is on the smaller side. This one measures in at 126 x 64.7 x 10.8mm. And again, despite the plastic construction, and lower end specs, the handset didn’t feel all that bad in hand.
