ChampOne S1 holds a Cheap Price Tag – Another Freedom 251?

Nobody would forget Freedom 251 smartphone and its maker Ringing Bells. The company keeps on saying that it would begin shipping the smartphone to the registered users, but there’s no mere clue about when it will happen.

Now, we have a new story from a new company called ChampOne Communications. This company isn’t following the traits of Ringing Bells with huge promotion campaigns, though. It has announced a new smartphone, the ChampOne S1 at a cheap price tag of Rs. 501. Now you’d understand why I mentioned this as a new story.

The company is saying that it is their first “Made in India” smartphone. Needless to say, the company has an interesting knot for shipping. Let’s see the innards of ChampOne S1.

ChampOne S1 Key Specifications:

  • 5-inch HD IPS display
  • MediaTek 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB storage
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 5MP front camera
  • Fingerprint scanner

There’s a microSD card slot that can hold up to 64GB. The ChampOne S1 surely has pretty good specs while the highlight is the fingerprint scanner. However, the company claims that the price is only meant for promotional and it will retail at Rs. 8000 post launch.

The Rs. 501 price tag is only applicable to registered users for the September 2nd flash sale. You can visit the company website to get your ticket. The offer is only slated for cash for delivery. The company is trying to show itself as a legit brand; however, we have to wait until we get hands on the smartphone.
