While the ZTE Open C has entry-level specs, it’s actually a big step up from last year’s original ZTE Open.
The ZTE Open C features a 4 inch, 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen display, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. It has a 3MP rear camera and a 1400mAh battery and supports HSPA+ networks as well as 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
It doesn’t have a full HD screen, a front-facing camera, or any number of other feature you’d expect from a higher-priced phone. But the ZTE Open C is a an entry-level device aimed at price-sensitive customers in emerging markets as well as developers and other early adopters interested in getting their hands on a device running Mozilla’s browser-based, web-centric mobile operating system.
The original ZTE Open launched with even lousier specs, including a 3.5 inch, 480 x 320 pixel display, a 1 GHz single-core ARM Cortex-A5 CPU, 256MB of RAM, 512MB of storage, and a 1200mAh battery.
