Intex has officially launched its Firefox OS-based 'Cloud FX' smartphone. Priced at Rs. 1999, the smartphone features 1GHz processor and 128MB of RAM. Intex's Firefox phone will be exclusively available via Snapdeal.
The Intex Cloud FX has 3.5-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels density. It has a 2MP rear camera. The smartphone comes with 256MB of ROM, expandable up to 4GB. Connectivity options include dual-SIM, GPRS/Edge, Bluetooth, USB and Wi-Fi. It is powered by a 1250 mAh battery.
The Intex Cloud FX also supports several languages like English, Hindi and Tamil. The smartphone is available via Snapdeal in two colors – Black and White. Intex has also tied up with Aircel to offer 500 MB data per month for three months with the new phone.
Speaking on the launch of ‘Cloud FX’, Keshav Bansal, Director, Marketing, Intex Technologies said that, “The launch of Intex Cloud FX marks the beginning of a new era of the Indian smartphone market and Intex is proud to be the first Indian company to understand and deliver on market needs. With the launch of Intex Cloud FX, we aim to enable the masses to get smartphone experience at the cost of a feature phone.”
Intex's Cloud FX is the second Firefox OS based smartphone in India. Recently, Spice launched its Fire One Mi – FX 1, featuring 3.5-inch display, 2MP rear and 1MP front cameras, 1GHz processor and connectivity options such as dual-SIM and 2G.
The new Firefox OS based smartphones apparently target the entry-level smartphone segment, which has been dominated by Android so far. While the Firefox phones may have very basic hardware specs, but they do make up with their ultra low-cost pricing, which could be the key for their success in a price-sensitive market such as India.
