Say hello to the FreedomPop V7.
FreedomPop has unveiled its own Android phone with price £59. The new FreedomPop V7 runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 2,100mAh battery. it looks like a typical low-end handset, with less than stellar bezels and three capacitive touch buttons underneath the display. A slick aluminium frame and what looks like a skateboard-style grip tape finish on the back. These specifications not high ones but nice for the price.
It will come with 5 inch display. Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) and no news for other updates.
A 13-megapixel camera sits on the back, while a 5-megapixel selfie snapper hangs out on the front. The phone comes with 16GB of internal storage, and while there is a microSD slot, it only supports cards up to 32GB. Clearly, FreedomPop hasn’t built this phone itself.
The point of the phone, of course, is to be a vessel for FreedomPop’s SIM card, which offers 200 minutes, 200 messages and 200MB for free every month. You might be wondering how the company makes money: Well, it has four Premium plans too, which range from £4.99 to £19.99 per month.
The phone is only available in the UK and Spain, and in limited quantities and on freedomshop.com.
