Ringing Bells, the Noida-based company has failed to start delivery of Freedom 251. People were sceptical about the company and their underpriced device already and this may add fuel to the fire.However, the company has only delayed Freedom 251 delivery date for a few days.
What is Freedom 251 delivery date?
Freedom 251 will start delivering to people on cash on delivery basis from July 6 and not from June 30 as promised. Ringing Bells’s founder and CEO, Mohit Goel is ready with around 2 lakh Freedom 251 headsets. Ringing Bells has also contacted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his support under the ‘Make In India’ Initiative.
“We have prepared a meeting requesting PM Narendra Modi to pitch our case as a domestic smartphone maker which wishes to contribute towards ‘Make in India’ initiative,” said Ringing Bells CEO, Mohit Goel.
Freedom 251 Launch Event
Freedom 251 got all the hype it wanted in just 2 days of its announcement. So, many people logged on to Freedom251.com that it crashed for a while. Everyone wants the phone badly. The company has decided to give the Freedom 251 handset an official launch event on July 7, just one day after the deliveries start.
Those who could not register for Freedom 251 before can register soon as the company will soon start it again.
