The controversial world’s cheapest smartphone, Freedom 251, which startled tech enthusiasts across the world is finally up for grabs. Ringing Bells CEO Mohit Goel has promised that the Rs 251 smartphone will be ready to ship from 30 June, and the 2 lakh units will be shipped by July 4.

Meanwhile, ahead of the phone's delivery, Indian Express has launched the first look of the new Freedom 251.


This is what we gathered from the first look:

As for the specifications, here's a quick recap:

Only winners of a lucky draw will get their hands on Freedom 251 and the company said it will organise a media event ‘soon’ to announce the lucky draw.

The company claims it received a total of 7.5 crore registrations from across India and out of them, over 2.8 crore registrations were from UP and close to 2 crore from Bihar.

Explaining how the lucky draw will work, Goel said: 

We will give away 10,000 units in every state. We decided to hold a lucky draw because many people had registered for multiple phones. We want to bring it down to one phone per person.” 

The lucky draw winners will most likely be announced within two days.
