Yezz Announces a New Windows Phone and Firefox Device

Thursday Jan 8, 2015 (00:09:51)


While CES might see a lot of talk about Android, Yezz took the opportunity to speak about 2 other platforms: Windows Phone and Firefox OS.

The company currently offers a pair of Windows Phone devices: the Billy 4 and Billy 4.7. This year, they announced a new member of the family: the Billy 5S. This is their first LTE device in the Billy line, as well as the first to sport a 13MP rear camera, and a 5" IPS screen. It also sports dual SIM capability and a 1.2GHz quad-core processor.

In addition to the Billy 5S, Yezz also announced a new line of handsets: the Foxy, a line of Firefox OS handsets. As with most Firefox OS handsets, the specs are not traditionally spectacular, but are enough for the target demographic. A 1GHz single-core processor, 4GB of internal memory and 2MP rear facing camera are the common capabilities of the 2 new handsets. The Foxy 3.5 offers a 3.5" HVGA LCD screen, while the Foxy 4 offers a 4" HVGA TFT LCD screen.
