Yet another Indian upstart is now promising to sell an Android smartphone for a bargain basement price. This time it is Docoss, a company based out of Jaipur. The Docoss X1 is now available on pre-order for a price of Rs. 888. The story was first reported by PhoneRadar.
The phone comes with a 4-inch WVGA (480×854 pixels). Internally it will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor (unspecified model). The phone will have 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage space, which can be further expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card. It has a 2-megapixel rear camera and VGA front camera. For connectivity, the phone has GPRS/EDGE, 3G, and Wi-Fi. The phone has dimensions of 122.2×64.4×9.3mm and weighs 102g.
Now while the Docoss X1 looks like a really appealing offer, please exercise caution if you intend to buy the phone. In recent times, Ringing Bells had promised to sell a smartphone called Freedom 251 for the price of a coffee at Starbucks, i.e. Rs. 250. However, it soon got embroiled into a controversy and someone even filed an FIR against it. Ringing Bells even refunded the people who paid for the phone online. Now, the company is promising that it will ship the phone to pre-ordered users by June on Cash-on-Delivery (CoD).
We tried to pre-book the Docoss X1 on its home website but couldn’t as the website would keep crashing. Moreover, the price doesn’t include taxes. Apparently, NDTV Gadgets contacted Docoss and found out that the company is currently conducting maintenance on its pages. Apparently, there is a way to book the phone by sending an SMS. However, even that doesn’t seem to be working now.
