Ringing Bells launched India’s most affordable Smartphone today, named Freedom 251 at a price that could be cheaper than your phone bill. The phone was earlier announced to be priced at less than Rs. 500 (approximately $7).
The launch is a move that is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for “empowering India to the last person, transforming India’s growth story”, the company said.
The Freedom 251 will be officially unveiled in New Delhi on Wednesday evening in the presence of a number of top Indian government officials including Shri Manohar Parrikkar, Union Defence Minister and Dr. Murali Manohar Joshi, Hon’ble Member of Parliament.
The Smartphone comes with a 4-inch WVGA resolution display, features a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt storage and a 3.2 megapixel back camera. It will also accommodate a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front and has a 1450 mAh battery. The memory can be expanded up to 32 GB using a microSD card. The dual SIM, 3G Smartphone will run on Android lollipop OS.
As a new entrant in the Indian mobile phone market, Ringing Bells made headlines earlier this month when it launched the Smart 101, the cheapest 4G Smartphone at a price tag of only Rs. 2,999 (approximately $44).
