Within months after a huge uproar created by Ringing Bells as a result of selling Freedom 251 for Rs. 251, another company has now surfaced with ChampOne C1 smartphone for Rs. 501. However, the company has priced the ChampOne C1 device at Rs. 7999. We don’t know how the company is selling a smartphone worth Rs. 8000 for Rs. 501. The registrations for the new smartphone are now open. If you are registered, you will be able to buy the new device on September 2 during the first flash sale.
ChampOne C1 faced registration problems
Like Freedom 251, the company initially faced difficulties with the registration process. Firstly, the website itself was very badly designed and the registration button was inactive. Meanwhile, the company has published a disclaimer stating “payment gateway” problems. It added that the registrations will now work for the next 24 hours.
As of writing this, the Jodhpur-based company has revealed that the new ChampOne C1 will be sold through Cash on Delivery mode. According to sources, there is an additional registration fee and shipping charges but we are unable to find any information regarding this.
As far as support is concerned, the company has provided a toll-free number. We attempted to call one number but were unanswered. Meanwhile, another phone number was reportedly switched off.
ChampOne C1 Specifications
On the specifications front, the ChampOne C1 features a 5-inch HD IPS display, a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM paired with 16GB of expandable internal storage. The device will be loaded with an Android 5.1 Lollipop with dual-SIM support.
While the rear camera will be equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor, the front-facing snapper comes with a 5-megapixel sensor.
Powered by a 2500mAh battery, the ChampOne C1 provides support for all major connectivity options including 4G LTE. The smartphone will be available in White, Silver, and Gold color variants.
It remains to be seen as to whether the company fulfills the promises by delivering the devices. You will have to pay money when the device is delivered.
