SEOUL, Dec 25 (Korea Bizwire) – LG Electronics is set to release the world’s first LTE-based smartphone mounted with Firefox operating system developed by the Mozilla Foundation. The company announced that it has developed the Firefox smartphone jointly with Japan’s mobile service carrier KDDI and will release industry-first Firefox smartphone Fx0 on December 25.
The Fx0 is mounted with LTE modules, first among Firefox smartphones worldwide. Compared to other operating systems such as Android and Apple iOS, Firefox OS has relatively low hardware specs and for this reason is used mainly for low-priced smartphones.
LG Electronics added more features and elegance to the existing concept of the Firefox phone and make it available in LTE format. Through collaboration with a globally famous industrial designer Tokujin Yoshioka, LG Electronics uses semi-transparent material for the external side of the Fx0.
