One of India’s cheapest 4G smartphone Bell 101 was also recently launched at Rs 2,999 by Ringing Bells.

The company said that ‘Freedom 251’ launch is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for “empowering India to the last person, transforming India’s growth story”.
It also maintains that its smartphone is built to comply with the goals of Make in India.
Make in India is the government’s assignment to lure international as well as domestic companies to manufacture their products in India.
Ringing Bells hasn’t divulged any information about manufacturing, products and pricing except that they will begin with the assemblage of handsets in Phase I.
The Freedom 251 has the capacity to remarkably improve the lifestyle of low income people in the country by making a smartphone available at a price under Rs. 500.
It will be interesting to see whether or not Ringing Bells is able to manufacture and sell this device at a large scale.
India recently became the second largest smartphone market in the world after China. The country has seen a large number of national and international smartphone makers kick start manufacturing and assembling in the country under the ‘Make in India’ initiative.
Buying a Smartphone for 500 is not a big deal for many as bill crosses above to that. Give a try
