ZTE bringing another 6" Android beast, new Firefox phone to MWC

2013's Grand Memo will get a 4G-flavoured super-slim sequel

The mist is beginning to lift in smartphone world, and we're starting to see an ever-clearing picture of which devices will and won't be on show at next week's MWC 2014 in Barcelona.

With seemingly nailed-on launches from Nokia, Samsung and LG, it's now ZTE's turn to show its hand ahead of the biggest mobile event on the calendar.

The Chinese manufacturer plans to showcase an 'ultra-slim' 6-inch Grand Memo II LTE handset, a successor to the original device launched at the event in 2013.

Details are thin on the ground, but the company did say a new version of the MiFavor UI it users to paint over Android will sit within the device.

Fox on deck

Also on deck for an MWC launch is the company's latest handset running the open source Firefox OS from Mozilla. ZTE launched the Firefox-running Open last year.

The Open C will make its bow running v1.3 of the software and is likely to be another budget effort from the company, aimed at emerging markets.

We're likely to get the full skinny on both devices when MWC kicks off on February 24. Team TechRadar is raring to go and will be on the floor to have a nose at ZTE's offerings.
