Freedom 251 Maker Says 2 Lakh Rs. 251 Phones Ready, Will Launch ‘Cheapest’ HD LED TV

The world’s cheapest smartphone (251 Indian Rupees—less than US$4) is here. The specs:

  • 4-inch screen
  • dual-SIM
  • 3G
  • 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8GB of internal storage (supporting memory cards of up to 32GB)
  • 8-megapixel rear camera with flash
  • 3.2-megapixel front camera
  • 1800mAh battery
  • Android 5.1 (Lollipop)

The rollout is slow and units are being sold at a loss, but still. This is amazing and the program, which is subsidized by the Indian government, will bring the web to millions who have not been able to access it previously.
