ZTE Firefox OS Smartphone Specs Emerge

Chinese manufacturer ZTE is reportedly working on a smartphone based on Mozilla’s Firefox mobile operating system, Boot to Gecko.

The smartphone will apparently utilize the same hardware template found in the Android-powered V788D. That phone features a 3.5-inch display that is capable of displaying a 800 x 480 pixel resolution. Other features includes 512MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera situated at the rear of the device, as well as a 1.5GHz system-on-chip.

Speculation suggests that Mozilla and ZTE have already commenced the distribution of prototypes to developers.

Firefox's operating system, which is based off a mobile platform centered around HTML5, supposedly consumes considerably less power than iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

    No Java? Excellent.
    More battery life? Sweet.
    No app ecosystem? Might as well be a feature-phone... ;-(
