Whats make Freedom 251 cheapest Smartphone in the World?
First of all there is no subsidy from the Government at all. "The Freedom 251 takes full advantage of the benefits provided by Make In India and Startup India." said Ringing Bell, president Ashok
Chadha. Chadha admitted the phone had a manufacturing cost of around Rs.2,500. But, he explained, there was a unique business model behind the phone helping the company sell it at a price of Rs.251.
Although, the economies of scale doesn't explain how a company will be able to absorb loses when it will sell a phone with around Rs.2,000 manufacturing cost at a price of Rs.251. So Chadha tried again. The bill of materials [cost of the parts] for a phone like this is around Rs. 2,000 - by making in India we take away around Rs. 400 from that; by selling online we cut overheads and save another Rs. 400," explained Chadha. "And as the numbers go up, we're not talking lakhs but much more, we save another Rs. 400 from economies of scale. And then, our platform becomes big, and attractive to others, so we can then highlight products that are worth buying for our customers, and this is another source of income. We will pass all of this on to the customers, we want to make only a small profit per unit. The phone, which is assembled mostly in India, takes advantage of duty exemptions that amount to 13.8 per cent.
This is just the first step, and over time we will introduce more handsets, at different price points as well. And in a year or two we want to launch a Bell SIM card which will also have some unique features," added Mohit Goel, Director, Ringing Bells.
