Ringing Bells developed its $4 Android phone in the thick of disputes, when it first mentioned in February that it would release the low-cost smartphone soon. At the time, most people did not take it seriously.
They have over 70 million registrations for these smartphones. So much work for them.However, they plan to complete the first delivery phase before registrations open again.
The CEO, Mohit Goel, said that the company loses about $2 on every handset they manufacture. But despite that, he is hopeful that they will be able to make money out of these phones through bulk sales. He also believes that the demand will continue to soar due to its low cost.
The greatest challenge will be experienced at the level of shipment.
The company now plans to ship 200,000 units of Freedom 251 each month in order to fulfill the demand.
