Man, at this rate, there’ll be next to no surprises at next week’s Mobile World Congress (MWC).
We’re perusing yet another MWC 2013 press release, this time from Orange Europe, which promises no less than three new Android smartphones for Barcelona.
Recent Orange-branded handsets include the Intel-fuelled San Diego and – a popular one in Spain, apparently – the Orange Monte Carlo.
Orange says sales of its handsets are up 62%, with a 77% increase in market share. Not too shabby.
As such, Orange is keenly throwing out three new smartphones in one, namely the Orange Lumo, Orange San Remo, and Orange Nivo.
The Orange Lumo is the network’s first ever 4G phone, with LTE connectivity, a 4.5in display, 8MP rear camera, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).
The Orange San Remo is their first “large format” (i.e. phablet) device, with a 4.7in display, 8.2mm thickness, 8MP rear camera and Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).
Finally, there’s the entry-level Orange Nivo, which targets “youth and first smartphone markets”. It has a 4in display, 5MP rear camera, and – again – Jelly Bean (Android 4.1). Orange tells Engadget it won't arrive in the UK. *shrugs*
We’ll inevitably learn more about the processors and RAM and what have you next week. Stay tooned.
