Ringing Bells, a Noida-based Smartphone company which a launched few months back launched a new phone collaborating with the Indian Govt. regarding Digital India and Make In India initiative by PM Mr. Modi. But, who knew they would have such a mind boggling success with it? They launched the Freedom251 smartphone which is aggressively priced for 4$(Rs.251) and has decent specs! I mean, Can you even think of a normal Nokia phone this cheap now-a-days? *-*
For that much, you get a handset that is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, and sports a 4-inch qHD IPS display. It comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal memory, which can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. In terms of camera, the Freedom 251 features a 3.2MP rear unit and a 0.3MP front shooter. The phone runs Android 5.1 (Lollipop), and packs in a 1,450mAh battery. Connectivity options include 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, and GPS, while color options include white.
Ringing Bells says the phone is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for “empowering India to the last person, transforming India’s growth story.” It will be available to order from a dedicated website (Source link below) starting 6:00 AM tomorrow (February 18). India’s Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar officially launched it yesterday(17th Feb).
But, Today at 6AM their website, from where you can purchase the device, crashed due to huge traffic and was again up after almost 2hrs but still we were not able to order any of it as the Pay Now button was refreshing the page! Which was a big issue. After 3hrs of that issue being live, the order systems were closed and the firm left a message regarding the cause! READ down below what it says-
This means how popular this phone is becoming and its also not 12hrs since the phone was launched! But, for today we can’t anymore as the company has closed the booking so let’s wait! Do let us know if you’re among those few people who have successfully registered and booked the phones! 🙂
