In a partnership with the French network operator Orange, Alcatel OneTouch has announced a low end smartphone running Firefox OS. Named as the Orange Klif, the device has a 3.5-inch HVGA screen and it is powered by a Dual-core processor (from Mediatek) clocking at 1GHz.
While the specs seem too basic, the phone runs Firefox OS 2.0 version based on HTML 5, and the OS has Adaptive App Search, or the Single Window Search feature which helps in easy access to apps. There is Firefox App marketplace for the users to download more applications in the device.
This little device has 256MB RAM, 512MB internal storage with MicroSD storage expansion and it has a Dual SIM capability. On the back of the phone, there is a 2-megapixel camera with LED flash. Having a 1300 mAh battery, the device supports 3G HSPA+ connectivity as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. The phone is 11.9mm thick, and it has FM Radio included.
This isn’t the first Firefox phone from Alcatel, as we earlier saw Alcatel One Touch Fire and the Fire C devices as well, and those had little better specs than the Orange Klif, but for the price of $40, you can expect not more than this.
The color option available for Orange Klif, is black, and the phone will be rolling out in 13 countries in Africa and the Middle East, starting in the second quarter of 2015.
