CEO of Ringing bells (manufacturing company of Freedom 251 smartphone) confirmed that they are going to ship the smartphone to users who have registered for the Freedom 251 smartphone.
The delay in the shipping of devices is caused by a battery issue which is now getting solved.
Mohit Goel has also shared with a press that they are trying to meet the Prime Minister Mr. Narendar Modi to garner support and be more intrinsic to the Make in India campaign.
Why Do You need to be Lucky to Get a Freedom 251?
Unbelievably, The company got over 7 Crore registrations for buying the smartphone. The company is going to send the smartphone to lucky winners in each state based on a draw. The draw will be done state by state basis and smartphones will be shipped to the lucky winners from 6 July 2016.
The company has got highest registrations from Uttar Pradesh a whopping 2.5 Crore. The number of smartphones getting shipped will be minuscule to the demand and if the company is losing Rs. 2,000 per smartphone in the process the net loss will be around Rs. 40 Crore for the company.
