Firefox OS phones are now on sale in Japan! You can buy an LG Fx0 with Firefox OS 2.0 installed for JPY 50,000 (that’s $414 or €340) at KDDI.
In the early days, it was easy to laugh about Firefox OS. With this new range of partners and upcoming launches in a wide range of new markets, however, Mozilla’s chances at making a dent in the smartphone ecosystem in developing countries are starting to look much better than ever before.
The Fx0 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with a 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU, aided by 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage space expandable via microSD cards. It sports an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and a 2.1 MP front camera. It has a 2,370 mAh battery, and it runs Firefox OS 2.0. Its dimensions are 139 x 70 x 10.5 mm and it weighs 148g.
Japan’s not the ideal market for the current versions of Firefox OS, being a country where a large fraction of people already use high-end phones. But it’s nice that they’re easily available.
