    LG to reveal Firefox phone next year

    SOUTH Korean tech company LG will unveil a Firefox OS phone in the first quarter of next year, according to Bulgarian head of mobile communications Dimitar Valev at LG Electronics.

    The phone's release is dependent on how the operating system is received, technology- news website Pocket-lint reported, quoting Mr Valev.

    But, with the Firefox OS-based ZTE Open selling out on eBay in just three days, prospects for the LG phone look good, he added.

    Mr Valev hinted that LG is also working on a tablet, a phablet and a smartwatch, Pocket-lint reported.

    The company first announced its support of the Firefox OS at the Mobile World Congress in February.
