Let’s face it, a lot of smart phones look the same: metal or plastic back and touchscreen up front. Fx0, the new Firefox OS flagship phone designed by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka is probably the first phone we’ve seen in a long time which is looking to do something different.
If you’re old enough to remember the late 90s, then you know that transparent gadgets aren’t a new concept. Consumers loved the first iMac and the Gameboy Color when they did transparency and it’s been long enough since that time that the Fx0 feels like fresh design.
The Fx0 is running Firefox OS and sports some pretty decent hardware specs. Users shouldn’t experience any lag as they run some of their favorite web apps like Facebook and Twitter. Firefox OS is a full OS though, and can also run native apps like contacts or calendar just as well as your iOS or Android device can.
The LG-built Fx0 is unlikely to grace North American shores but its design will likely become a hallmark of future Firefox OS products. If you’re in Japan, you can snag one for yourself on January 6th, 2015.
