Phone hardware.

It looks very much like an ZTE (Chinese company) Blade 2 or Blade 3 with what it seems like almost (if not totally) identical specs. Can it be another rename for this phone? (In some countries they are called "san fransisco", in others "wind" and so many other names.) If so i am very happy, then maybe i could wipe this phone i have and install firefoxOS on it instead of android and play with it one day. I doubt i would buy a new one anytime soon though as i upgrade phones about once every 9 years or so.

Good catch; it most certainly is.

Not a bad base.

Mozilla does work with ZTE on phones, so wouldn't be surprised if it is.

Developer phones usually aren't all that different from existing models, but I'm sure you knew that. :-)
