As expected, the San Francisco 2 will arrive touting an 3.5-inch (480 x 800) touchscreen – the same as found on last year’s model. However, instead of Android 2.1, the new handset will arrive running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS, which – as well as all of the usual Google goodies – equips the phone with some built-in Orange apps. These include; App Store, Music Store, Wednesdays and Games.
On the hardware front, the phone also packs a bumped-up 800MHz processor, a 5 megapixel rear-facing autofocus camera, up to 32GB of expandable memory, and HSDPA and WiFi connectivity.
One thing Orange doesn’t tell us, however, is the handset’s pricing and release date. Still, the Orange San Francisco II will no doubt get officially-official within the next few weeks, so we’ll bring you more details as soon as we get them.
