Namotel Acche Din mobile is world’s cheapest smartphone at a price of Rs 99: Promoter
Namotel Acche Din, which is priced at just Rs 99, is being marketed by Madhava Reddy run startup as the world's cheapest smartphone. This new 'cheapest ever' mobile phone has come quickly in the wake of the Freedom 251 mobile phone fiasco, which was priced at Rs 251, but ended up virtually being branded as a scam with promoters getting sued and a FIR being lodged. Another budget smartphone that hit headlines recently was Docoss X1 priced at Rs 888, which was supposed to start deliveries from May 2, 2016. So far, Madhava Reddy's company has not provided any extra information about the smartphone and there is very little transparency about the gadget and that holds true of even the photos being bandied about - there is no clarity whether these pictures are of the actual handset or not.
