Helio’s recent price-drop on the Helio Ocean was rumored to be paving the way for the first new handset from the MVNO in quite some time – the Helio Ocean 2. And, seeing as how Helio passed their “OZ2” through the FCC’s testing labs, the Helio Ocean 2’s launch was all but expected in the near-term.
Unfortunately for Helio customers, the final details on the Helio Ocean 2 are still getting hashed out in the company’s R&D labs. But, thanks to a little birdy with loose lips (beak?), we’ve got some juicy specs that could very well make it in to the production version of the Ocean 2.
It seems that Virgin Mobile negotiations aren’t the only thing that Helio is keeping themselves busy with. We’re hearing that the next-generation Helio Ocean will sport a 3 megapixel camera, 30 fps video recording, 1 GB storage, microSDHC card slot for memory expansion, touch-sensitive directional pad, Flash support, and PC sync support – all in the familiar dual-sliding form-factor that made the Helio Ocean such a pleasure to use.
We’ll keep our ears to the grapevine for more information on the Helio Ocean 2. And, while you’re waiting, enjoy the barely visible picture of the Helio Ocean 2. Stay tuned.
