After releasing Firefox phones in India and some more markets, Mozilla is all in planning to release its Firefox OS powered smartphone in Japan. The company has collaborated with LG to create a quite extraordinary yet sharp looking smartphone. Named as the Fx0, the 4.7-inch smartphone wears a transparent shell with the brilliant Firefox logo at the back. Evaluated at 50,000 yen (Rs 26,350 roughly), the Fx0 will be accessible in limited number stock beginning today and will be accessible generally from January 6 onwards.
Designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, who formerly designed the LG’s flagship G3’s smartphone, the phone’s body demonstrates the inner segments of the handset. For a device that is intended for designer driven group of onlookers, the design approach does appear to be fairly engaging.
The extent that specifications are concerned, the handset dons a 4.7-inch screen and is controlled by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor paired with 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. It bundles a 2,370mAh of battery.
“We are very pleased to bring the first Firefox OS smartphone, based on Web technology standards, to the Japanese market today,” said Takashi Tanaka, President of KDDI. “KDDI wants to manufacture the new time of the Web through Web of Things, empowering everybody to make exclusively connected Web experiences.”
Mozilla will be depending on the LG Fx0 for a huge support to its overall battling high competitive community. The Firefox OS smartphone has gotten thankfulness from a many users, and its low cost value point has most likely empowered it to bait in numerous customers, however it still has far to go to contend with the business sector titans.
