With a humongous number of smartphones launching each day, the smartphone market is booming very fast pace. With its large population, India is one of the biggest markets for the smartphone makers. Each day a new phone with a lesser price and a better feature is launched in the market. But what has really caught the attention of every smartphone maker and user is this new smartphone “Freedom 251“ manufactured by Ringing Bells.
With the kick start of the “Make in India” week, Ringing Bells is all set to launch its smartphone for INR 251 which is less than $4 which is touted to be the cheapest smartphone in the world. Unbelievable, yet true.
Ringing Bells is a Noida based company which is being appreciated even by the Government of India. Ringing Bells has manufactured this phone with keeping in mind the views of our Honorable Prime Minister Mr.Narendra Modi, to connect to very Indian and to better their lives.
The exact retail price and other phone features and the specifications of the phone has been kept under the wraps and will be unveiled tomorrow on 17th February in a launch event which is expected to be attended by top notch government officials like Mr.Manohar Parrikkar ,Honorable Union Minister of Defence and also by Mr. Murli Joshi, Honorable Member of Parliament.
The Ringing Bells has been in the news earlier this month too, for launching Smart101, a 4G capable smartphone priced at INR 2999, approximately $44 which sports a 5-inch display with quad-core SoC, 1GB RAM, and 8 GB storage which can be extended to 32GB using a microSD card. Apart from the smartphones, Ringing Bells has also launched two featured phones, Ringing Bells 4U and Ringing Bells Master priced at INR799 and INR999 respectively.
The phone Freedom 251 has some similarity with the Aakash tablets, which were launched in 2011 and were popularly known as the Datawind Ubislate 7+, which was highly promoted by the UPA government. The tablets were provided to the college students as a measure to provide them the aid of computing and internet using machines.The tablets were launched at a base price of INR 3000, but the price was reduced to INR 2500 when the project was being closed.
This new smartphone with a base price of just INR 500 can really help to uplift the life of millions. But the volatility of the market makes every product launched, take the risk at its own stake with too much competition. Let’s wait with crossed fingers for our country’s most affordable smartphone which can actually change the lives.
