ZTE's second Firefox handset at MWC 2014 sports entry-level specs and a compact design.
BARCELONA, Spain -- Mozilla Firefox has its eyes strategically set on low-end, affordable smartphones, and ZTE's tiny Open II is exactly just that.
The Open II is super compact and has a smooth, almost pebble-like construction.
Don't expect much photo power here: users will only get a 2-megapixel camera and nothing else.
Its wide bezels give it a notably deep chin, which is accented by a single, circular home button.
The Open II will run on 3G networks and ship with the latest Firefox OS 1.3.
The phone's aesthetic reminds me of a more playful the Grand S, ZTE's flagship handset last year. Obviously the latter has a more sophisticated, austere look, but their matte plastic bodies and rear-facing cameras look vaguely similar.
It features a 3.5-inch HVGA display with a 480x320-pixel resolution. Needless to say, it isn't the crispiest touch screen we've seen, even for a low-budget handset, nor is it the most sensitive.
