Now that Mukesh Ambani-led telecom operator, Reliance Jio has firmly established itself as a major player in the market, the company is looking at ways to achieve total market domination. With never ending freebies and insane low prices, Jio has truly been a game-changer. Guess we just have to wait it out and see if the phone fulfills our expectations of nearly impossible features at such an unbelievable price. But now new images of Reliance Jio feature phone have leaked online. It has a candy bar design with a dual language keypad and a dedicated button for activating the phone's torchlight slotted between the buttons to receive and reject calls.
Talking about the camera specifications of Jio 4G feature phone, it will have a 2-megapixel back camera and a VGA camera at front. Rumors were rampant about a basic, 500 rupee Reliance Jio 4G phone. The device will come with a 2000mAh battery, 512MB RAM, and 4GB of internal storage expandable to 128GB with the microSD card.
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is likely to meet all telcos on July 21 to discuss minimum floor price for voice and data tariff in the country, as it has been demanded by some operators.
Reliance Jio has already filed a complaint against Airtel and Ookla in Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) as the Airtel advertisemnt claims to be India's fastest network.
In fact the latest rumours suggest that the telco is working on a 4G-enabled feature phone - under the company's LYF-brand. Both the app and the device are heavily optimized to run high intensive tasks like video streaming over 4G.
It also reveals that the 4G phone will be bundled with Jio Apps - Jio TV, Jio cinema, Jio music and so on. It seems to come with popular apps like Facebook and Whatsapp along with a digital personal assistant. As connectivity options, the device supports 4G VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, GPS. The smart voice assistant can answer questions like current weather, solving mathematical equations etc.
"They (Reliance Jio) have not informed us". Though it looks very much like an ordinary feature phone, the Jio Lyf branding in itself means that it will be 4G capable, as the new company doesn't deal with any other spectrum but 4G.
