Last month Spanish smartphone maker Geeksphone teased an upcoming device called the Geeksphone Revolution that is reportedly capable of running Android or Firefox OS. Back then little information was revealed regarding it with only the teaser message “The revolution is coming. Stay tuned” announced.
The company has now provided additional details about this upcoming device and even provided some of its specifications. Geeksphone Revolution is a smartphone able to run on Google’s Android or Mozilla’s Firefox OS and will be using an Intel Atom Z2560 1.6GHz processor. It will come with a 4.7 inch IPS 960×540-pixel display, 8MP rear camera with flash, expandable storage, and a 2000mAh battery.
No information was provided on how much RAM the device or about other details of the device. The price and specific release date was not discussed either. Geeksphone however announced that this device will be hitting the market in the early part of next year.
The specs might not impress a lot of people however its main selling point is its ability to switch between Firefox OS and Android without voiding the warranty. We’re still not sure how the company is going to implement this process which is very interesting.
Geeksphone might not be a popular brand right now with its claim to fame being its early support of the Firefox OS. The company has already released in the market the Keon and the Peak, both running on Firefox OS and both priced affordably.
Firefox OS is developed by Mozilla and is a browser-based mobile operating system that runs web apps rather than software designed to run natively on the processor. This gives software developers flexibility in creating apps without worrying about the hardware aspect of the device.
