ZTE Open, the first commercial Firefox OS phone, specs leak ahead of MWC

We all knew that ZTE would showcase its first Firefox OS smartphone at MWC and now a spy shot of the phone’s spec sheet has made it online. Engadget received the photo from a reader and it looks like the ZTE Open will be a fairly entry-level smartphone running on modest hardware.

The ZTE Open will be the first commercially launched smartphone to run on Firefox OS and features a Qualcomm MSM7225A chipset, which is based on ARM Cortex A5 architecture and is known to be clocked at 600MHz or 800MHz. Other hardware specifications include a 3.5-inch HVGA capacitive display, a 3.2-megapixel full-focus camera, a 1,200 mAh battery, 256MB RAM and 512MB of NAND memory.

Other features include Wi-Fi n, Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio, micro USB connectivity and an accelerometer and ambient light sensors. It does not have 3G connectivity, so the ZTE Open could be priced at $100 or lower.
