Indian firm, Ringing Bells had launched world’s cheapest smartphone at a price of Rs. 251/- (less than $4). The company announced earlier that the Freedom 251 will be priced at “less than Rs. 500”.
Even though the smartphone have the lowest price, it comes with almost all the specification that available for a descent smartphone now available in the market. The Freedom 251 comes with a 4 Inch display, 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable up to 32GB), 3.2-megapixel back camera, 0.3-megapixel front camera, and a 1450mAh battery.
The Freedom 251 was officially released in New Delhi on Wednesday evening at an event that will be presided over by Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi, MP, with the Union Defence Minister Sri Manohar Parrikar as the Chief Guest.
Ringing Bells says the Freedom 251 smartphone has been developed ‘with immense support’ from the government and is touting it as a success story of PM Modi’s flagship ‘Make in India’ scheme.
