Firefox OS powered Intex Cloud FX is India’s cheapest smartphone

Intex’s Cloud FX proudly holds the title of the most affordable smartphone in India and it isn’t an Android device, but the first handset to run on the Firefox OS in the country. The phone is priced at Rs 1999, making it almost Rs 1000 cheaper than the lowest priced phone on the market running Google’s mobile OS.

As mentioned above, the Intex Cloud FX isn’t the only Firefox OS smartphone in India. Spice announced its Fire One Mi-FX 1 a couple of days ago, but at a slightly higher price of Rs 2299. The latter certainly has the advantage here considering that both handsets have almost identical specifications and they basically look the same as well.

That’s mainly because both companies have based their releases on the reference design from Mozilla. The Cloud FX handset is as basic as you’d get in the smartphone category since it’s aimed at first-time customers. The phone is fueled by a 1GHz single core Cortex A5 processor and it offers a measly 128MB of RAM.
