Geeksphone’s Dual OS Android-Firefox Smartphone Leaks Online

Geeksphone recently made headlines for collaborating on the allegedly NSA-proof Blackphone, but the Spanish startup is also hard at work on its own flagship handset. The first photos of the Geeksphone Revolution were recently leaked online by German site Mobile Geeks, showing off the dual-booting Android-Firefox OS handset. The company has since confirmed that the pictures are authentic.

The Revolution comes equipped with a 4.7-inch IPS qHD display, a 1.6 GHz dual-core Intel Atom processor, and a 2000mAh battery. The device appears to come in black or white and feature a slightly curved design with three capacitive buttons on the front. There’s still no word on pricing or availability, though Geeksphone has hinted that the upcoming smartphone will come at a budget-friendly price.

Dual-booting devices have just begun to catch on, with a few Android-Windows devices making an appearance at CES 2014 earlier this month. We’ve also heard rumors that Microsoft unsuccessfully pressured HTC and other smartphone-makers to put Windows Phone 8 on their Android devices as a secondary OS. Geeksphone appears primed to actually release the first dual-booting smartphone, and we’re looking forward to seeing the Revolution in action.
