Still looking for an affordable smartphone, then let’s talk about this pocket dynamite
Indian phone space is in major trouble as a fine month old company releases the world cheapest smartphone and you read it right the WORLD CHEAPEST SMARTPHONE. The freedom 251 priced at a jaw dropping $4 dollar and launched by Ringing bells last February 17.
Runs with an Android Lollipop 5.1 operating system, powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, it enabled you to access to all applications offered on Google Play store. The camera has 3.2 megapixel and comes with 8GB internal storage. Also has a one-year warranty from the company.
It is not clear how Ringing Bells has been able to produce a smartphone this unbelievable cheap, but reports said that the Narenda Modi government might be subsidizing the phone manufacturer under its flagship “Make it India” program. Possibly that why the Freedom 251 comes with preinstalled applications for some of Modi’s pet projects such as the Swachh Brahat and Woman’s Safety. Ringing Bells will sell the handset via 650 suppliers in India.

There are also cheap smartphones available in India but not that cheap as the Freedom 251. The Alcatel Fire C which uses Firefox OS and has a price tag of Rs.1729 or approximately 25 US dollar. And other low end smartphones in Asia’s third largest economy range between Rs. 2,000 and Rs. 3,000 that also from India.
According to Ringing Bells the Freedom 251 will “empower citizens, even in the remotest rural and semi-urban centres of India, with the latest in digital technology at incredible affordable prices and cascade knowledge, news and current issues so that all experience the confidence of inclusive growth and equal opportunity”.
As for now the booking for the Freedom 251 is closed. Did you manage to book for the handset?
