To cater to this, Mukesh Ambani has skillfully launched a range of Reliance Jio Feature phones.

Intex is the manufacturer of Reliance Jio 4G feature phones:


Intex, an Indian smartphone, and feature phone manufacturer is likely to crack the deal of manufacturing the devices for this large scale project. The deal is not confirmed yet, however, Intex is already in talks with Mukesh Ambani about this and is positive on closing the deal soon. However, Intex will not be the only brand that will be the OEM for this. Sources have reasons to believe that it will be taking in 2 other manufacturers for this and one of them would be a Chinese manufacturer.

 

Reliance Jio Phone Specifications:


The Reliance Jio feature phone will be featuring a primary camera of 2MP and a selfie shooter of 0.3MP. There is no confirmation yet on the processor yet, but there is an inclination to believe that Qualcomm might be the OEM for this. The phone is speculated to be featuring a Firefox OS. That said, the Firefox OS is not as fancy as it sounds. This has been implemented by makers like Intex, Spice, Zen, and more. That said, the Reliance Jio feature phone will be getting to the table 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory, supports expandable memory, 4G and VoltE, Bluetooth connectivity, 1.2Ghz Dual-core processor and a 2.5-inch TFT screen.

 

Why the feature phone segment:

Reliance has always been a revolutionary in terms of communication in India. Back in the day when users were charged for taking incoming calls, Reliance made incoming calls free and to face that competition, other service providers had to make incoming calls free too. Later, Reliance observed that the nation is hooked on to the internet and service providers charge for little amounts of data. To beat that Reliance launched Jio, a service which offers the fastest connectivity at no charge. That’s not all, Reliance Jio completely waived off charges on Outgoing and Data too. This revolutionary wave in India happened in 2016 and in the third quarter of 2017, Reliance Jio has come up with a Reliance Jio feature phone that supports 4G at a price as low as INR 500.

After the launch of Reliance Jio and LYF mobiles, only smartphone users were able to reap the benefits of Jio and the whole lot of users who use feature phones were left out of the digitalization of India. To bridge the gap and cater to the needs of 50 crore feature phone users, Reliance has launched the new 4G Reliance Jio feature phone.

Reliance had launched the LYF range of smartphones during the launch of Reliance Jio to get the users the real 4G experience at a pocket-friendly price. Now to ensure that the feature phone users are introduced to the Jio family, they have introduced a phone that supports 4G connectivity and join the digital revolution in India. There are a lot of mobiles in the LYF Earth, Water, and Fire series of smartphones. This list just gets better with the addition of this feature phone.
