Even though these devices may not as powerful as other standard smartphones, you will be able to experience the basic usage of Android. The recently released smartphones are made available for booking for a specific period of time and after that, the manufacturer will deliver the product before the particular time frame. In this article, we will explore smartphones which are priced under Rs. 1,000.
Freedom 251 features a 4-inch qHD IPS display, 1.3 GHz Quadcore Processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable up to 32GB), 1450mAh battery loaded with Android 5.1 Lollipop. While the primary camera is equipped with a 2.3MP sensor with autofocus support, the front-facing shooter features a 0.3-megapixel sensor. The company claims that the front camera is integrated with a touchless technology, which is ideal for perfect selfie.
With over 650 service centers across India, the Freedom 251 will be available by the end of June on “Cash on Delivery” basis. Previously, the company attempted to accept payments through a payment gateway but it was widely criticized by people and tech lovers all over India.
This is because the hard-earned money of the people will be at stake if the company fails to fulfil the promises. Moreover, the company reportedly covered the back side with Indian flag but the smartphone introduced during the launch event was actually that of another company.
If you had placed an order for Freedom 251, you will have to pay the required charges to the courier person at the time of delivery.
