Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE is planning a new-and-improved Firefox OS smartphone, a company executive said yesterday, except this time it will sport a dual-core processor, larger screen, and a better user experience.

The Firefox OS ZTE Open went on sale in the US and UK for $79.99 last month, unlocked and initially exclusive to eBay, following its arrival in a handful of developing markets. The next handset is expected to land in the US in the first half of 2014, and will also be priced “at the lower end.”
