Another Cheap Phone Docoss X1 Smartphone Launched at Rs. 888 like Freedom 251
Wednesday 27th of April 2016
Ringing Bells unveiled its Freedom 251 smartphone at an incredible price of Rs. 251. The smartphone made headlines for few weeks, and caught attention of the entire nation. The Freedom 251 from Noida-based start-up Ringing Bells however soon lost its sheen. The smartphone was surrounded by controversies that even lead to an FIR registered against the makers. The biggest highlight of thesmartphone was its pricing rather than any specifications under the hood. The company received close to 60 million registrations in few days but after taking initial bookings for the handset, the Freedom 251 makers announced pre-booking money to be refunded to users and also confirmed that it would take cash on delivery, upon delivery. The first orders will be delivered in June.
Since then, another India-based brand - mPhone - made headlines about its range of smartphones, offering great specifications at good prices. Unlike with Ringing Bells, the controversy surrounding the makers of the mPhone 'Mango' smartphones was due to the financial state of the proprietors, who were reportedly arrested at the launch of the brand in India for bank fraud.
It is in this atmosphere of doubt for new Indian brands that a Jaipur-based company named Docoss has announced an entry-level smartphone for as little as Rs. 888. Deliveries of the smartphone are in the company's promotions said to begin from May 2, while pre-bookings close on Friday.
