Although Huawei was one of the companies committing to Mozilla’s mobile OS, we still wait to see a single Firefox OS-based smartphone made by the Chinese firm. The good news is that the wait could be over soon, with Ascend Y300 II emerging as the first Huawei handset to run Mozilla’s mobile platform.
We’re not sure when this phone will officially launch, but we know its guts. Specs wise, it’s pretty much the same as the Android-based Ascend Y300. In that sense, we’re talking about a low-to-mid end device that comes with a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play chip, 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, 4-inch WVGA screen, 512MB of RAM, 1,730mAh battery and 4GB of expandable storage.
The unit you’re about to see in a video has Movistar branding on the back, hinting us it could be heading to parts of Latin America and Spain. Hopefully, we’ll get something more official from Huawei in the coming days or weeks. Stay tuned…
