This post, is for those who pre-ordered the BeepTool N500 Oyi-1 affordable smartphone. I know you must be have been waiting and wondering when the phone will be delivered to you. Well, sorry to say this, but you have to wait a little longer. A recent update shows that the smartphone will be delivered between 4 to 7 months from the date of pre-order. This was contained in an email I receive from the company.
According to the company, the reason is due to the high cost of manufacturing. BeepTool said the process is being crowd- funding at a cost ₦25,000 per smartphone. It said due to the high cost of manufacturing, the affordable smartphones distribution will be in batches based on FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. Those who PRE-ORDERS between August and November 2018 would expect the device to be delivered between 4 to 7 months.
The e-mail reads;
