ZTE Open, one of the first smartphones in the world to arrive on shelves with Mozilla’s Firefox OS platform, has been showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, and Softpedia managed to get a closer look at the device.

The handset is nowhere near impressive when compared to the current flagship smartphones running under Android, Windows Phone or other platforms, but it does sport the features and capabilities that users would want to receive from it.

ZTE has packed the new device with a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen display, a 1GHz processor, 256MB of RAM and 512MB of internal memory, and with a microSD memory card slot.

The smartphone also sports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity capabilities, microUSB port, FM Radio, GPS receiver, a 3.2-megapixel photo snapper, accelerometer, and ambient light sensor.
