Celkon's new smartphone will be competing against a range of entry-level Android smartphones. It may be recalled Google's Android KitKat OS has been optimised for the low-end smartphones as well. We can expect more low-cost and ultra low-cost smartphones, running Android KitKat.
That said, Mozilla in coordination with two Indian smartphone brands - Intex and Spice - is targeting entry-level smartphone segment in India with its ultra low-cost Firefox-based smartphones. Intex has confirmed launching a new smartphone – Cloud FX, which will be priced below Rs. 2,000.
