Freedom 251 is a decent smartphone that everyone can afford to make Digital India
Freedom251 is India’s most affordable smartphone priced at INR 251. It is a great drive towards Digital India. The phone was launched yesterday by veteran BJP leader Dr Murli Manohar Joshi. Ringing Bells India Pvt Ltd becomes the latest entrant in the smartphone market in India. This will definitely give a boost to Govt. of India’s top on the list projects like Skill India, Make In India and Digital India. This has brought a revolution in the smartphone market. A smartphone at such a low price is a miracle in my opinion. At such an affordable price, the penetration of smartphone will reach the remotest of the villages of India. This is a price that anyone can afford without a slightest of the pinch in the pocket. That is what Dr Joshi spoke about yesterday. He said if the technology is not there, it is sad for the country. If the technology is there but is not at an affordable price, it will lack popularity and penetration. And if the technology is there at the most affordable price then it will be widely accepted and welcomed open heartedly. A word of caution he said is if the price is low but the offering has no value in it, then it is dangerous. But in the case of Freedom251, it is a great value for money.
Freedom 251 will not only empower people lying in the low-income segment but will also enable a new gateway of learning and adaptability. The price of the phone is even less than most of the voice and data plans available in the market. It is a cheerful ringing bell situation for the buyer. But at the same time, it has put the other smartphone players in the market into a tight situation. This is going to being a complete paradigm shift in the smartphone market. The challenge is too tough for other players to accept. Only those who has the knowledge to take advantage of disruptive technology will be able to accept this challenge. This will be a table turning the situation in the Indian smartphone segment. A smartphone with no compromise with the quality and at such an affordable price is something really fantastico.
As far as the configuration of Freedom 251 is concerned – it is quite decent and better than many entry level smartphones available in the market priced much higher. With 1.3 quad-core processor, 8 GB internal memory (ROM) that is expandable to 32 GB, 1 GB of RAM, 4-inch IPS touchscreen, 3G and running on Android Lollypop 5.1, this is really a thunderous breakthrough in technology and price. The rear or primary camera is 3.2 megapixels and the front or secondary camera is 0.3 megapixels. The battery is okay to start with. It is 1450 mAh. But then what to expect from a most affordable smartphone priced at just INR 251. This is a fantastico technology and price revolution brought in India with the launch of Freedom251. Now, Prime Minister’s dream of a Digital India is not far away.
