Mobile World Congress 2014: Orange Lumo, San Remo and Nivo offer 4G, Jelly Bean in Europe

1:33 /

Orange has announced three new affordable Android Jelly Bean phones for Europe: the 4G Orange Lumo, the budget Orange Nivo and big screen Orange San Remo.

Hello. I'm Richard Trenholm of CNET, and I'm here at Orange headquarters in London to meet the new Orange San Remo, Nivo, and Lumo which is the first 4G Orange phone. The Lumo, Nivo, and San Remo are 3 new phones from European career Orange and will be available in various countries this year. They all come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software giving you an affordable way to put the latest software on your pocket. The Lumo is Orange's first own brand 4G phone, so connect to the web at superfast speeds in countries where Orange has a 4G network. It's a 4.5-inch smartphone with an 8-megapixel camera and dual-core processor for speedy video, gaming, and web browsing. The San Remo is the biggest phone Orange has ever made clocking in at a whopping 4.7 inches, has a dual-core chip inside and it's a bit of a looker too with a slender profile and classy silver back. And that the cheap and cheerful end that's the Orange Nivo with its dinky 4.5-inch screen and 5-megapixel camera. All 3 phones are loaded with Orange apps giving you features like a custom lock screen and apps for free cinema tickets, but those Orange extras mean you won't necessarily get Android updates in the future. My favorite feature is that you can draw on the screen to open an app, a bookmark, or a contact. For example, draw a V to open video or draw an O to go online. So the Orange San Remo, Nivo, and Lumo won't be available on Orange in Europe in the first half of 2013. I'm Richard Trenholm of CNET.
