LG Fx0 Is A Transparent Phone Running Firefox OS

By 08:50 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

Mozilla's Firefox Operating System (OS) has made its debut in Japan today, with the announcement of the Fx0. This oddly named smartphone manufactured by LG is designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, and it's transparent. Literally.

As you can see from the image below, the Fx0 lets you peek at its internals without ever needing to hold off a cover or something like that. And it's also got a home button decorated with a golden version of the Firefox logo.

The Fx0 is certainly different from all previous Firefox Operating System (OS) phones, which have so far centered on being as cheap as possible. This one, though, is more of a design statement. That's why it will also be the most expensive Firefox Operating System (OS) device we've seen so far, being priced at JPY 50,000 (that's $414 or €340, by the way).

Aside from being transparent and all that, the Fx0 takes its design cues (the shape, mostly) from the LG G3, but it is smaller. It has a 4.7-inch IPS touchscreen, while its resolution hasn't been made public yet.

The Fx0 is powered by a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with a 1.2 Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core CPU, aided by 1.5GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB of built-in storage space expandable via microSD cards. It sports an 8 MegaPixel (MP) rear capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash and a 2.1 MegaPixel (MP) front camera. It has a 2,370 mAh battery, and it runs Firefox Operating System (OS) 2.0. Its dimensions are 139 x 70 x 10.5 mm and it weighs 148g.

In a first for a Firefox Operating System (OS) handset, the Fx0 will have support for both 4G LTE and NFC. It will be offered exclusively by KDDI and only in gold. A limited sale will start on December 25, and the phone will be widely available in Japan starting on January 6. Just don't hrecent your breath if you're hoping to see it srecent elsewhere - smartphones from Japan rarely create it to other places.
