Everyone would have expected a $4 phone to be a very low profile phone with midi tones, horn-looking antenna and a very ugly look with no smart feature but the news took me by surprise this morning to find out that Ringing Bells, a smartphone company in india is actually launching a Android phone called Freedom 251. The phone will be launched in India this week and the cost is just Rs 251 (which is less than $4).
As ridiculous as it may seem, you will be more amazed when you find out some of the specs as highlighted below:
Display – 4 inches
Processor – 1.3 GHz Quad-core
RAM – 1GB
Battery – 1450 mAh
Camera – 3.2 Mega-pixel rear camera, 0.3 Mega-pixel front-facing camera
Storage – 8 GB internal memory (expandable to 32GB with micro-SD card)
OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop
In addition to the specs above, the phone will be coming with many pre-installed apps to help people in their various occupations such as farming, medicine and Women safety.
Ringing Bells was founded in 2015 and it has four mobile phones in its name since then. According to reports from Mashable, the phone will come with a one-year warranty and could be serviced in over 650 repair outlets across the country.
I really hope we could have something similar to this in Nigeria, what’s your own opinion about this News, kindly share it via comments. Thanks
