HTC Tipped To Introduce Firefox OS Smartphone in 2015

Last year the Taiwanese manufacturer built budget friendly smartphones with MediaTek chipsets. This product lineup is unexpected and completely new from HTC. Like the same, the top smartphone maker is planning to come up with a new line of devices running on Firefox OS.

Mozilla's Firefox OS isn't so popular like the Sailfish OS (Jolla) or the upcoming Tizen OS. All the smartphones that used Firefox OS were all budget friendly with low-end specs. LG, ZTE, Huawei and Alcatel had released Firefox OS based smartphones.
