The $4 smartphone debut in India

$4 smartphone in india

 

Indian handset maker Ringing Bells launched Wednesday India’s most affordable smartphone for just $4, a move that is set to disrupt the booming handset market in the country.

The launch is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for “empowering India to the last person, transforming India’s growth story”, the Noida-based company said.
The device called Freedom, and its official website claims it has a 4-inch qHD IPS display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (expandable up to 32GB), as well as a front (0.3 megapixel) and rear (3.2 megapixel) cameras.
The website’s details also say that the phone is powered by an unknown 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and a 1, 450mAh battery. It runs Android Lollipop and will come preloaded with a handful of apps, such as Women Safety, Whatsapp, Facebook and YouTube, when it ships on June 30th.
Established last year, Ringing Bells will start with the assembly of handsets in Phase-I and aims at full indigenous development of the feature-rich smartphones, it said.
According to XDA Developers, it had a rather controversial media launch recently, wherein Ringing Bells showed off a beta prototype marked with a logo that says “Adcom.” The company tried to hide that Adcom branding using White-Out because it’s a known importer of products made outside the country.
