NEW DELHI: Here's another attempt at offering the cheapest possible smartphone in India. Jaipur-based Docoss has announced an Android-powered smartphone priced at Rs 888. Called Docoss X1, the smartphone has made a silent entry, unlike Freedom 251's launch which was a grand affair.
The company had just setup a website (first uncovered by Phoneradar) and is taking pre-orders for the smartphone with a promised delivery date of May 2 and cash on delivery facility.
The Docoss X1 smartphone promises a 4-inch screen, 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex A7 processor with 1GB and 4GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 32GB. It runs Android KitKat and is powered by a 1,300mAh battery along with a 2MP rear and VGA front camera. It is a dual SIM 3G smartphone.
For Rs 888, the smartphone seems like a good deal -- but is it for real? This is something to be discovered when deliveries actually start.

Hope this is not a fake as Freedom 251. Wait and watch :)
This Android phone is Made In China and has no guarantee if it goes off. (screen dead or the battery dead)
Media should be more responsible in publishing news

Any news on Freedom 251? Seems like a hoax. This 888 phone could be similar.
Is any body received 251 Phone ? I m not :-) This one seems more practical price :-) only reporters are getting these samples :-) What about customers ?:-)
India is becoming a Cheap Market with these Chinese phones..
The features hardly shows that it is smart. Anyways, let us see if it is true.
