Freedom 251 Smartphone: Website facing Trouble, Users Unable To Place Order
Ringing Bells has launched the world’s cheapest smartphone Freedom 251 priced at Rs 251. The company announced that the customers can purchase the device from its website freedom251.com starting at 6am on February 18.
However, it seems the company’s website is facing glitches. We tried ordering the smartphone twice, but failed both the times. While early morning the website of the company was not opening, we tried again around 9am and this time while the website opened, when we clicked on the ‘buy now’ button, a new page opens which asked us to fill all our details. However, as soon as we clicked on ‘pay now’ button, the page refreshes and we are not able to order the smartphone.
Tech also spoke to few others who wanted to buy the smartphone and are facing same issue. Says, Nikita Singh, a student, “I have been trying to order a smartphone since morning, but have not been able too.”
On specifications front, Freedom 251 features a 4-inch qHD display with 960×540 pixels resolution. The device runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. The smartphone offers 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage which can be expanded further up to 32GB using a microSD card.
The smartphone comes equipped with a 3.2MP rear camera and a 0.3MP front facing snapper for clicking selfies. Its connectivity attributes include 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and packs a 1,450 mAh battery.
