A Jaipur-based company Docoss has launched an entry-level Android smart phone Docoss X1 for Rs.888. The pre-booking for the phone started today, and the deliveries of it is all set to begin from May 2.
Operating on Android Kitkat 4.4, it has an inbuilt 1 GB RAM and an expandable memory of up to 32 GB. The phone also comes with a 2 megapixel camera and a 0.2 megapixel secondary camera.
The smartphone has garnered widespread interest among the public for reasons similar to the Freedom 251 smart phone, which was pricd at Rs. 251 only. The Docoss website reportedly crashed due to excessive traffic and a Facebook post by the company has stated that they will be receiving bookings via SMS.
Freedom 251, launched by Noida-based Ringing Bells received close to 60 million pre-bookings upon announcement of its first handset. Later, however, FIRs were filed against the manufacturers by the users.
mPhone, another company from Kerala, promised a wide range of smart phones with competent features at throwaway prices. However, it got swept into controversies as well due to financial defaults of the proprietors, who were reportedly arrested during the launch of the phone.
