The company didn’t reveal much apart from that the phone has a touchscreen and it possibly runs on linux operating system. There is a rear camera here with flash too, but a front facing camera would probably be too much to ask at this price. Anyways, this won’t be a phone for gaming but casual use and web browsing. The one year free internet might be 2G or 3G network but we can’t complain at this price. Stay tuned for more information.
