Orange’s Gova and Reyo smartphones bask in MWC glory

by Gareth Mankoo

it is something of note, seeing Orange do so well in the smartphone market with their own-brand devices. In 2013, the company released a line of 14 devices and hey, they all sold really well. The carrier’s devices successfully attract those users who love a fine cellphone experience without shelling out too much. The company’s market share and European footprint also grew by 40 percent. This is evidence enough why the brand is readily launching two new devices, namely the Orange Gova and the Orange Reyo at the Mobile World Congress. The Gova is touted to be the company’s quickest phone with 4G speeds of up to 150 Mbps, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera, 8GB internal storage, 5-megapixel camera, a slim 7.85mm body, a 4.5-inch qHD display HD voice support and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The Orange Reyo comes with a 5-inch IPS display, 5-megapixel camera, 1.3GHz dual-core processor, HD voice support, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The Reyo is available in Spain, Slovakia, Romania and Poland while the Gova will be available from April in Poland, Spain, Slovakia, Luxembourg, Moldova, Tunisia and Mauritius. The pricing is yet unknown.
