Geeksphone, the first company to bring a Firefox OS smartphone to market, is today teasing a new high-end handset called the Revolution.

The Spanish startup is tight-lipped at the moment, but we know that it will run either Android or Firefox OS. Advanced users will also be able to install Mozilla’s mobile operating system as a ROM on the Android build, GigaOM reports.

Geeksphone says it’ll be a premium device with a high-performance processor. “Once again we will revolutionize the world of mobile network,” Javier Agüera, the company’s co-founder said. “We are also confident that we will surprise everyone by its very high performance and it’s very competitively priced”.

Any customer that pre-ordered the Peak+, the latest version of its Peak Firefox OS smartphone, will be upgraded to the Revolution automatically. According to GigaOM, this is because the company ran into a number of problems with its supply chain in Asia, which it says would have been “impossible to avoid.”

A teaser site for the Revolution has gone live, but it’s devoid of any useful information right now. Still, a high-end device that could potentially run both Android and Firefox OS ? The Revolution would be a versatile and unique tool for developers, if nothing else.
