FreedomPop unveiled its first ever own-branded Android phone — the FreedomPop V7

FreedomPop, the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that gives SIM cards with absolutely free primary cellular plans, has unveiled its first ever very own-brand phone. The FreedomPop V7 costs just 60 British pounds, or approximately 75 Dollar, and is derived with a SIM card loaded with free calls, free SMS, free information, and even free WhatsApp messages. if you’re now not too demanding, you can come to be paying most effective once for the V7, and in no way again.

Running down the specs, you will not find some thing that jumps out as fantastic, or even excellent at all (particularly after seeing all of the latest MWC 2017 goodness), but the V7 is angled to a price-targeted audience and appears to supply on its mission.

The front and centre is a 5-inch, 720p IPS liquid crystal display show, which will serve up Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the field. there is no word on software program updates (a Nougat launch seems not going) though it does seem to run a near inventory model of Android. A thirteen-megapixel camera sits on the back, at the same time as a 5-megapixel selfie snapper hangs out on the front. The phone comes with 16GB of internal storage, and at the same time as there may be a microSD slot, it only helps playing cards up to 32GB. Honestly, FreedomPop hasn’t constructed this smartphone itself — the organisation may not inform us who it is partnered with, however.

Apparently, the FreedomPop V7 has a dual-SIM card slot, and is not confined to FreedomPop plans. that means you may use some other SIM card with the phone, or transfer your FreedomPop SIM to every other handset whenever you want. The cellphone itself, then, feels extra like a marketing stunt then a genuine hardware push.

In case you’re in the U.K. or Spain, the V7 is to be had on a primary-come-first-served foundation through FreedomPop’s website, and the organisation warns that substances are limited, so grasp one fast in case you need one. Each person in the U.S. keen to get a comparable deal should be patient, FreedomPop says the V7 could be released within the US later this year.
