BARCELONA, Spain--Swinging past the Telefonica booth at Mobile World Congress I came across these two phones sitting in a case full of Firefox phones. First up is a mystery device from Huawei:
The reps on the stand wouldn't comment on the specs, availability, or, well, anything really, but it's a good sign that Huawei is working on a model. Judging by the size of the screen, it looks like a slightly higher-end model than the other Firefox phones we've seen, but that's as much as I can guess for now.
The same Firefox case also contained a turned-off LG phone -- it doesn't seem like the biggest leap in the world to guess that this will run Firefox OS, too.
One thing Firefox OS has going for it is a decent number of manufacturers and a bunch of carriers behind it. Maybe these devices could be on sale somewhere in the world one day.
