ZTE wants to sell 1 million Firefox OS phones this year, Open C and Open II will be among them
Apart from announcing the new Android-based Grand Memo II LTE, ZTE today also revealed future plans regarding its Firefox OS handsets. As Mozilla mentioned last month at CES, ZTE's newest Firefox phones are the Open C and Open II.

The Open C is the best among the two, although it’s still a modest device when compared to today’s high-end smartphones. 

Sporting a 4-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels, the ZTE Open C comes with HSPA+ connectivity, a 3MP rear camera, dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, and a 1,400 mAh battery. The phone measures 126 x 64.7 x 10.8 mm. ZTE will launch the Open C in the second quarter of the year, first in Venezuela and Uruguay (via Telefónica).

As for the Open II, this is the successor to the ZTE Open that was released in 2013. Its features include a 3.5-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels, HSPA+, 2MP rear camera, dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 256MB of RAM, 2GB of internal memory, and a 1,150 mAh battery.

Both new ZTE handsets will be affordable - but certainly not as affordable as the $25 Firefox phone that Mozilla is working on.

ZTE says it expects to ship "over 1 million" Firefox OS smartphones by the end of 2014. The Chinese company also mentioned that it’s planning to release a 4.5-inch Firefox handset by 2015. Yesterday, Alcatel already unveiled two 4.5-inch Firefox phones: the Fire S and Fire E.
