Most of you are probably not very familiar with Orange-branded smartphones, but these are actually pretty popular among European users on tight budgets. The latest Orange trio is not going to be an exception, although at least one of the new devices will likely appeal to a more pretentious audience as well.
That’s dubbed Lumo and is Orange’s first-ever 4G-enabled smartphone. Besides the zippy network speeds, this fellow has a fair share of power on its side, courtesy of a dual-core 1.2 GHz MSM8930 CPU.
You can’t argue much with the on-board Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or the 8 MP camera either, while on the flipside you have a fairly run-of-the-mill 4.5-inch screen with 960 x 540 pixels resolution and 4 GB of on-board memory.
The San Remo, while lacking LTE, boasts a larger 4.7-inch display and a fairly acceptable dual-core 1 GHz MT6577 processor. You get Android 4.1 and an 8 MP cam here too, but unfortunately also 4 GB of storage space and a 1,800 mAh battery.
Finally, the Nivo is far from a powerhouse, despite running Android 4.1. The 4-inch display sports an 800 x 480 pixels resolution, the camera on the back is a 5 MP unit and the battery a meager 1,430 mAh. All three phones will be available in “select European markets” by the end of H1 2013.
