LG seems to be slowly expanding its products into uncharted territory as they’re reportedly working on a number of products that will run on Chrome OS, and today, the company is unveiling its first Firefox OS smartphone: the LG Fireweb.
The LG Fireweb is yet another low-end smartphone that runs on Firefox OS as it features a 4-inch HVGA 320 x 480 display, a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 5MP main camera with auto-focus and flash and only 4GB of internal storage. The 5MP camera is certainly a step in the right direction as this is the first Firefox OS smartphone to offer a camera of this quality that also includes an auto-focus and flash.
The LG Fireweb is expected to debut in Brazil where it will be available on Telefónica Vivo for an off-contract price of around $207. Those who are willing to sign the carrier’s customer agreement can get the LG Fireweb for the subsidized price of $59. Telefónica Vivo will also make the LG Fireweb available in Peru, Uruguay and Mexico in the near future.
If you want to get yourself familiar with the LG Fireweb, Mozilla published a video to give you a quick overview of not only what the device looks like, but also its key features and how Firefox OS runs on the device.
