Mozilla is launching the entry-level Orange Klif in Africa
At this year’s MWC in Barcelona Mozilla and Orange announced the beginning of their partnership that aims to bring smartphones running on Firefox OS to Africa and the Middle East. This month the Orange Klif is getting released in Madagascar and Senegal. It is made by Alcatel OneTouch and will be offered exclusively from the mobile operator. It supports 3G connectivity and works on the mobile network of the carrier Orange.
Firefox OS is among the youngest mobile platforms in the tech world. More and more manufacturers are embracing the idea of releasing devices running on the OS. The main advantage of the web-based mobile platform is its simple user interface. The first markets that welcomed the entry-level devices running on Firefox OS are developing countries across Latin America and Europe.
Soon the smartphones powered by the Mozilla’s platform will be introduced to more than 32 markets across five countries in Africa and Asia. Orange Klif is a dual-SIM smartphone. Its main camera is with a resolution of 2MP and LED flash. The smartphone supports microSD cards. The rest of the specs of the entry-level device include a 3.5-inch with a resolution 480 x 320p. The Orange Klif works with a dual-core CPU with 512MB RAM. It is powered by a 1300mAh battery. The update of the platform that is running on the phone is Firefox OS, v 2.0.
