Lately, the India based smartphone vendors are following the trend of announcing low-cost Firefox OS based handsets. While Spice and Intex have already come up with their offerings with the launch of Spice Fire One Mi-FX 1 and Intex Cloud Fx. Now, it appears to be the time for the Android offerings to compete with the aggressively priced Firefox phones.
A report by GizBot reveals an exclusive press shot of an upcoming handset Celkon A352E called Celkon Nova One. It is claimed that this smartphone will be based on Android Jelly Bean operating system and will be priced as low as the Firefox OS based handsets around Rs 2,299.
The report goes on stating that the Celkon Nova One will be launched in the second week of September and that it will arrive with basic specifications. The handset appears to flaunt a small 3.5 inch display and come powered by a single core processor paired with 256 MB of RAM. It is claimed to arrive with 512 MB of internal storage capacity that can be expanded by another 16 GB using a micro SD card. Other aspects of the device include a 2 MP primary snapper without a front-facer for video calling and a 1,400 mAh battery.
Celkon has been involved in rolling out entry-level smartphones based on Android 4.4 KitKat operating system lately. However, the launch of this Nova One smartphone with such a low price tag will undoubtedly be a straight competitor to the Firefox based smartphones.
