Orange accidentally leaks San Francisco II

Orange accidentally leaks San Francisco IIThe cynics among us would probably put inverted commas around “accidentally”, but – in any case – UK network Orange has temporarily revealed the San Francisco II on its Help and Support pages.

The info has since been removed, but not before Lady Carly Page of SoMobile grabbed some of the vital stats.

Interestingly, the Orange San Francisco II will weigh in with 3.5in of display real estate (480 x 800), the same as its predecessor. I guess that’s not a huge surprise, however, as Orange and ZTE have the big stuff covered with the 4.3in Monte Carlo.

It’s upgrades all round in most other departments though. The snapper will get a boost from 3.2 to 5MP, the processor will leap from 600 to 800MHz, and Gingerbread (Android 2.3) will drive the ship.

As you’d expect from an Orange-branded smartphone, it’ll come loaded with a plethora of Orange apps. Hmm.

No word on an exact release date or pricing, but with the Help and Support page apparently finalised, we don’t expect it’ll be much longer.

If it ships with same chipset as Monte Carlo it will be more of a paper weight than a phone.

Was the chipset of the monte carlo the same as the ZTE Blade? I saw this review of the MC but it wasnt clear:

I have to say im a little disappointed with these specs, I had hoped for another game changer from ZTE by them releasing a dual core phone at a similar price point, this doesnt seem that much of an update really (ZTE Blade S perhaps) still maybe next year?

Yes, same MSM7227 with v6 ARM architecture. They beefed it up to 800Mhz, which basically what overclocked SF1 could already do.
Alternatively, there is MSM7230 (Desire Z), which is v7 ARM.
