Smartphone sales are declining worldwide with major players like Apple, Lenovo, Xiaomi, etc. reporting quarterly losses due to saturation in developed markets. However, this doesn’t apply to India, for moment at least, where huge fishes are still churning out profit by marketing a decent range of smartphones in Tier I and tier II cities.
And this can be not as regards to the massive names within the industry. Many domestic smartphone makers and a few recent Chinese brands are creating huge with their affordable yet feature loaded products.
But what makes Indian smartphone market actually a newsmaker is products like Freedom 251. The smartphone shocked the entire world with its pricing- Rs 251 and landed the Noida based mostly manufacturer- Ringing Bells in bother for the obvious reasons of low manufacturing cost and business model they are pursuing.
Just once the smoke was settled slightly and Ringing Bells declared that the company can begin delivering the Freedom 251 within the coming month- May 2016, a Jaipur-based company Docoss Multimedia, out of nowhere launched its smartphone- X1 at Rs 888. The company has begin taking pre-orders for smartphone till April 29 and will start delivering the product from May 2.
You can pre-order the X1 by providing your name, phone number, e-mail id and therefore the address with the PIN code on the company’s web site, or will merely send the data through an SMS to Docoss’ hotline numbers.
We managed to order a phone when variety of tries on the web site and predict to induce it delivered in the upcoming week, if company’s claims are to be believed. Docoss is providing cash on delivery for the X1.
We tried to attach with the Jaipur-based company to hunt some clarification on their client care range mentioned on the official web site, however probably the overwhelming range of decisions calls by potential buyers kept the lines busy when we tend to created a call.
If you propose to shop one for you, we tend to recommend you watch for a moment, at least for a week as we have no word on the product from the officials of Docoss X1. This will merely be another Freedom 251, waiting to induce into trouble because the overall existence of the Docoss Multimedia Private Limited looks suspicious for now. We are going to update the house as before long as we tend to get something on the smartphone from the makers.
Talking regarding the specifications of the Docoss X1, the smartphone looks solely smart for basic tasks like calling, taking occasional pictures, using Facebook, WhatsApp and browsing. It options a 4-inch IPS show with a resolution of 400×480 pixels. A 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex-A7 processor paired up with 1GB of RAM powers up the smartphone.
