Smartphone for ₹ 888 or another scam?
After the record bookings and supply failure of Freedom 251, Docoss X1 has made a silent entry in to the Indian market, and it can only be booked until April 29.
The Jaipur-based company, DOCOSS Multimedia Private Limited, seems to have learnt a lesson from the sales fiasco of Freedom 251 and has allowed only Cash on Delivery (COD) option for those booking the smartphone.
The official website of Docoss X1, www.docoss.com, has no provision to take any online bookings and just displays a phone number asking buyers to send names and addresses for the phone’s delivery.
According to a report published in PhoneRadar, the domain of the website was registered just two months ago and since it is a private domain, no other information was accessible. A brief investigation by PhoneRadar could not retrieve any additional information about the website owners either.
The owners of the company have already put up a video explaining the features of Docoss X1 on YouTube:
Technical specifications of the device:
With a 4-inch IPS display, Docoss X1 offers a 1.2 GHz dual core processor with 1 GB RAM. The primary storage capacity of the device would be 4 GB and this is expandable up to 32 GB.
The phone has a two-megapixel (MP) rear camera and 0.3 MP front camera. This makes it a decent image capturing device in the given range. The device is said to have a 1300 mAh battery, running on android 'v4.4.2 Kitkat'.
Whether this new ₹888 sensation in the market will also crash like the Freedom 251 is yet to be seen.
