(CCM) — Just a few months after the release of the Freedom 251, the phone that was introduced to the market at 251 rupees (3.70 USD), another Indian company has launched a smartphone for an incredibly cheap price. The Acche Din comes from Bengaluru-based company Namotel and boasts a 4-inch screen with 480x800 pixels WVGA resolution and a 2-megapixel main and a VGA front camera. Coupled with 1 GB RAM, it runs on Android's 5.1 Lollipop operating system, and packs a 4 GB built-in memory, which is expandable up to 32 GB. The dual-SIM smartphone offers 3G support.

Namotel said that its Acche Din is India’s most affordable smartphone. The phone, which is available for pre-booking until May 25th, can be booked via the company's official site. Hopeful buyers will have to fill out a form to reserve the smartphone, but before booking it, prospective buyers are required to register with a site called Be My Banker. This site, which charges users 199 rupees (2.90 USD), will generate the user ID and password required to reserve the smartphone with Namotel.

The company said that the price of the Acche Din has been slashed to 99 rupees from 2,999 rupees (44.40 USD) as a special offer. This price does not include the "nominal delivery charges" shown on the company's website.
