Orange Announces FOVA Handset, a New Affordable 4G Smartphone
Orange has announced a new handset with its own branding, the FOVA model, that’s supposed to be an affordable 4G smartphone. This model completes the collection that already includes the Roya and Nura models.
Orange FOVA is supposedly made by Gigabyte, although we’re not sure of that and it will be available in physical shops from February 26th. It is priced at 121 euros on the Orange site and at merely 89 euros on the Sosh site. The device comes with a 5 inch IPS display with a 854 x 480 pixel resolution, a CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz and 1 GB of RAM.
The processor is the Snapdragon 410 and we’ve also got 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot with up to 32 GB storage and a back 5 MP camera. The front sensor is a 0.3 MP unit. Inside we find a 2200 mAh battery, while the OS is Android 4.4 KitKat. FOVA measures 9.35 mm in thickness and weighs 150 grams. Its back imitates leather and the handset comes with gold colored finishes.
