Spanish retailer Geeksphone has just put its up-coming Keon M8666GP smartphone before the US FCC, according to, featuring the new Firefox OS.

Its list of specifications reads like most basic entry-level phones with its 3.5-inch display panel and 480×320-pixel (HVGA) resolution.

The phone is powered by a single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board flash storage.

Unfortunately, you have to remove the back cover to install your SIM or microSD storage cards so in that records, it’s like some of the older HTC smartphones such as the Wildfire series.

What’s also unfortunate is the fact the user manual doesn’t include any specs on the phone but expect it to perform somewhere between an HTC Wildfire for its screen and an HTC Desire for its processing capabilities.

The phone is expected to go on sale at the end of this month internationally for around $120.
