The Freedom 251 smartphone manufacturer Ringing Bells has now announced that it is launching a high-definition television set in the market. The company is holding an event in Delhi on July 7 where it is set to launch the Freedom HD LED TV. Alongside, Ringing Bells says it will will also be unveiling new 'range' of smartphones at the event.
Ringing Bells has sent out media invites for the event, however no pricing and availability details have been revealed. If the Freedom 251 smartphone is to be any testimony, the HD LED TV will also be ultra-cheap. The company's general manager Anmol Goel had earlier mentioned that the TV would be less than Rs. 10,000. Presumably, the company will take pre-orders before beginning to ship the product to the buyers. The high definition LED TV is expected to sport a 32-inch display, but there may be other variants as well.
As for unveiling a new range of smartphones, this news comes as a surprise as the company has not managed to deliver its Freedom 251 smartphone to the buyers yet. The invite also claims that the company's Managing Director Mohit Goel will update the media on developments related to the Freedom 251 smartphone.

With the vision to put a smartphone in every Indian's hands, the world's cheapest smartphone Freedom 251 was launched in February. The Noida-based startup is making headlines since then for its inability to handle volume pre-bookings, and delivering handsets on time. Ringing Bells was to begin delivering handsets on June 30, but was delayed to July 6.
