Ready for the invasion of budget Firefox phones? Intex has one-upped Spice by becoming the first company to launch a Firefox OS phone in India. The Intex Cloud FX has been launched at a scarcely-believable Rs 1,999 and will be a Snapdeal exclusive for now.
For the price, what potential buyers would get is a phone with a 3.5-inch display of HVGA (480×320 pixels) resolution. Firefox OS is designed to run with minimal hardware requirements and Intex has packed in a 1GHz Spreadtrum processor along with 128 MB of RAM
Intex claims this is the most affordable smartphone in India and we have to say the specs donâ€™t seem half bad when looking at the price. Moreover, the phone packs a 2 megapixel rear camera and comes with dual-SIM support. However, this is a 2G-only phone with support for Wi-Fi for further Internet connectivity.
The Cloud FX takes in microSD cards, but support is limited up to 4GB only. It comes with a 1250mAh battery, that sounds decent, but we are not sure how long it will actually last. The phone can be charged and connected to a PC using the microUSB port and thereâ€™s Bluetooth support as well.
Later this week, Spice will launch the Fire One Mi-FX 1 that also runs Firefox OS. The Firefox phone from Spice is priced at Rs 2,299, but it sports a front camera, justifying the price increase.
