Indian company Ringing Bells apparently made it in the smartphone world, making the cheapest smartphone ever, the Freedom 251. The launch of the Freedom 251 with prices tag of $3.67, which is equivalent to 251 INR, took many by surprise. The company, currently receiving pre-orders, recorded an unusual first hour demand following the launch.
India is currently the most favorable market for the low price smartphone makers specially the China-based companies. Though the space is continuously growing but the prices offered by the Ringing Bells with the Freedom 251 have resulted in many speculations where for many it is nothing to believe.
As displayed by the Ringing Bells, the Freedom 251 resembles Apple iPhone 4 in front looks with iPhone like home button and also iOS inspired icons. The display of the Freedom 251 is 4-inch with resolution of 540×960 pixels, yet we have no device to compare with it at this price range.
Under the hood with the extreme low prices Freedom 251 is powered by quad-core CPU, clocked at 1.3GHz. One of its noted parts include the memory and storage capacity. With quad-core CPU it brings 1GB RAM which is supposed to give you a bit smooth functioning. For storage it gives 8GB native storage capacity with up to 32GB limit for external microSD card.
Like most of the budget phones the Freedom 251 has also discounted on its camera in terms of powers. Brining the least prices phone the Ringing Bells is probably concerned with smartphones internal features instead of making it a camera phone. However, its 3.2-megapixel rear face camera and 0.3-megapixels on front it can still do basic camera things.
Finally, the most noted thing is the Android 5.1 which will give you a nearly refreshed feel while going through its interface. The Freedom 251 contains a 1450mAh removable battery which would be sufficient for its low features.
