Orange have revealed a trio of own-branded smartphones headed to their network by the middle of this year. The Lumo, Nivo and San Remo all carry Orange branding, and each fit differing wallet sizes.
Top of the line will be the Orange Lumo. It offers 4G connectivity as well as a 4.5 inch display, 8MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as its OS.
Next up is the Orange San Remo, looking to rival the Samsung Galaxy Note II in the size stakes at 4.7-inches in size, again with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as its OS and an 8MP camera on the rear, crammed into an 8.2mm thick design.
The Orange Nico will likely be the cheaper of the three, aimed at the youth market with its 4-inch display, 5MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.
Orange have enlisted the help of Gigabyte in the manufacture of the Lumo and Nivo handsets, whilst Alcatel/TCL have put together the San Remo.
“All of our customers around the world, from Bordeaux to Bucharest, are hungry for sophisticated yet affordable mobile phones that allow them to reap the benefits of the mobile internet,” said Yves Maitre, Senior Vice President of Mobile Multimedia and Devices, Orange.
Though we’ve no pricing information to share yet, we do know that the first territories to get the handsets will be Romania, Slovakia and Spain. No word yet on a UK release.
