Orange has officially announced the San Francisco II having inadvertently revealed it last week on its online support pages.
The handset, which is also dubbed the ZTE Crescent, is a direct sequel to the hot-selling original San Francisco and is powered by Android Gingerbread (2.3.5) out of the box.
Home to a 3.5-inch display just like its older brother, the San Francisco II is equipped with a faster ARM11 800MHz processor, a five-megapixel camera with autofocus and Orange’s HD Voice smarts for crisper sounds from calls. It also comes in a slicker, curvier new design that we reckon puts even some high-end kits to shame.
Its real USP, though, is its keen price point of just £99 on Pay as you go, or £10.50 a month on contract for those looking to snap it up for free.
"The Orange San Francisco II is a fitting successor to the award-winning first model, and offers the latest developments in data, voice and design," said Paul Jevons, director of products and devices at Orange UK.
"We are delighted to be following up on the success of the award winning original and with such a full-featured product we expect it to be really popular with consumers in the run up to Christmas."
The Orange San Francisco II will be available later this month.
