We’ve long been spreading the cut price love for Orange’s long reigning Budget Belle, the ultra cheap San Francisco, and the network looks set to unleash another bargain Android handset in the shape of the Monte Carlo.
The soon-come smartphone improves on the ‘Frisco specs by upping the the processor to a snappier 800MHz number, slipping in a 5MP camera and upgrading the screen to a generous 4.3-inches.
Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and packing a FM radio, the handset measures up at 10.4mm x 125.9mm x 67.8mm.
There’s been no prices announced yet, but if it’s priced as competitively as its predecessor, we expect Orange to have a winner on its hand.
