Though many thought that the Helio name was dead after the merger with Virgin Mobile, the FCC has approved a phone known as the Pantech OZII, and it has its branding. It looks similar to the original Ocean, and has a QVGA display, standard numeric keypad and a QWERTY keyboard. Additionally, it has EVDO 3G, a full HTML web browser, stereo Bluetooth, a slot for microSD cards, and a 2 megapixel camera.
Virgin Mobile has said that it plans to launch the Ocean 2, although an exact date is unknown. Though the branding is listed only as OZII on FCC documentation, it is presumed to be the Ocean 2.
