Orange San Francisco II confirmed, Android 2.3 onboard

November 11th, 2011

Orange San Francisco IIOrange has accidentally confirmed the San Francisco II, the sequel to last year’s best-selling San Francisco.

Although not yet formally official, we’ve spotted the handset’s on the network’s Help and Support page – which reveals full pretty-much full all you need to know about the ZTE-made smartphone.

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.

    is that a front facing camera?

    if so, this will be a great backup phone, same as the first San Francisco.

    The first san francisco was absolutely abysmal. I couldn’t even use
    android market because Orange don’t allow access to the market
    when you’re using wifi. Absolute trash company to be avoided at all costs.
