Just two years ago, quad core powered handsets with pretty decent overall specs often cost quite a fortune. While it's definitely much cheaper nowadays, nobody imagined that a smartphone maker will go super LOW.
That's what the Freedom 251 smartphone aims to do by changing the game once more by miles! The Freedom 251 appears to be a decent handset on paper with 4 inch 960p IPS LCD screen, 1.3 GHz quad core SoC, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB expandable storage, 1,450 mAh battery, 3.2 MP rear cam, VGA selfie cam, 3G connectivity, dual SIM card slots and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop for the price of a two piece chicken joy with sundae at around 175 Pesos in direct conversion. If you compute it, its almost 5x cheaper than both MyPhone My28s and 799 Flare Bundle.

It is also interesting to note that they have the "empower citizens, even in the remotest rural and semi-urban centers of India, with the latest in digital technology." motto. Maybe that's the reason behind this crazy pricing.

While it may surely take quite sometime before a manufacturer will do this here, news this good is always great to know.
