Those in our 20s would remember that a few years ago Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) came to our rescue during college days with a basic mobile phone for Rs 500, now another Indian-origin tech company called Ringing Bells is about to get its name itched in history by coming out with a smartphone called Freedom 251 for a surprising price of Rs 251. The phone will be launched on this Wednesday! Union Minister Manohar Parrikar will be present at the launching event.
Ringing Bells is a relatively unknown Indian company founded in 2015. It has come out with the Freedom 251 smartphone and has priced it at a ridiculously amazing Rs 251 only! Freedom 251 comes with a 4-inch qHD IPS display. On the camera front, it offers a 3.2MP AF rear camera with a 0.3MP front camera. The Freedom 251 is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. Since the price is ridiculously cheap we think it could be a Mediatek processor. Also, Freedom 251 comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory. It also supports external memory cards of up to 32GB.
The Freedom 251 is juiced by a decent 1450mAh battery. We have kept the surprise for the end, at Rs 251, the Freedom 251 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The Freedom 251 smartphone is available for pre-order on the company website starting 18 February at 0600hrs. Do check out the phone here.
