In yet another attempt at offering cheap smartphone, Bengaluru-based Namotel is likely to launch ‘Namotel Acche Din’ a smartphone at an insanely low price of Rs 99.
Touting it as world’s cheapest smartphone, the company's promoter Madhav Reddy said that the smartphone is available for pre-booking from May 17 to May 25 on the company's website namotel.com.
However, the website did not open when Retailer tried, rather the page displayed that the website is temporarily unable as it exceeded resource limit.
Propspective buyers are required to register on bemybanker.com website and get a user ID and password required to book the smartphone on namotel.com. One has to pay a one-time lifetime membership fee of Rs 199 for registration on bemybanker.com website.
‘Namotel Acche Din’ sports a 4-inch display with 480x800 pixels WVGA resolution, Android 5.1 Lollipop OS and 1GB RAM. The phone comes with a 2MP camera at the back and an almost meaningless VGA selfie camera, though connectivity options include 3G and dual-SIM.
