UK based mobile network, Orange has a bit of history launching it’s own branded smart devices. Budget Android handsets such as the San Francisco and Monte Carlo have proven to be strong sellers and the recently announced Tahiti tablet looks set to follow that trend. If a recent rumour from Simon Hardy over at coolsmartphone is anything to go by, the intel toting Orange London is set to be the next in line.
In a post online, Simon stated “As an Orange customer, I was signed up to a marketing scheme of theirs called Better Together. This basically involves being asked to complete various surveys related to phones & plans, internet, adverts, etc. Today I completed a survey on what they claimed to be a phone that they will be introducing called the Orange London.” The picture above was sent to Simon on completion of the survey.
The first point of note is there is nothing in the information that confirms that the Orange London will actually be an Android handset. The softkeys at the bottom of the phone certainly look like a typical Android arrangement with home, back and multi-tasking clearly visible. What we can see are some fairly impressive specifications as well as some extremely bold claims. The 4.03″ gorilla glass smartphone boasts a powerful 1.6Ghz Intel processor, 8MP full HD camera and 16GB of internal storage all of which is not-too-shabby. Orange claim that the London will have “the highest browsing speeds vs. any other phone in the word” as well as an “amazing, one-of-a-kind, 8 megapixel full HD camera lets you capture up to 10 photos in less than a second! It can zoom 8 times & has the best ever phone camera stabiliser.” Those are bold claims indeed and we’ll be keen to see this phone in action.
You can file this one under ‘rumour’ for the time being however with the World Mobile Congress just around the corner, we may not need to wait long to find out more.
