Reliance Launches Jio Mobile Phones below Rs 3000 and Rs. 1000

Last year, Mukesh Ambani had taken the Indian telecom market by storm by announcing like never before super affordable Jio mobile phones with cheapest 4G tariffs. With Jio mobile phones becoming huge hit among the Indian consumers, Reliance is all set to continue dominating the Indian telecom market by launching Jio mobile phones below Rs 3000 and Rs. 1000.

As per some reliable sources, Reliance Jio is considering launching 4G VoLTE-ready feature phones that would cost as little as Rs 999. Now this is certainly a bonanza offer for the enthusiastic users who’re willing to grab the benefits. These days when 4G smartphones are sold at hefty price ranges, what else one could ask for as one can have Jio mobile phones below Rs 3000 and Rs. 1000! These affordable smartphones enable the users to easily access Jio’s high-speed 4G internet, Jio digital store and not to mention music.

However, keeping the affordable pricing in view, these Jio mobile phones might lack some advanced functionality. However, it is speculated to boot Google’s Android and might have physical keyboard and front-facing camera. Now these are much more than to expect from a Rs. 3000-smart phone.

Now as per the current statistics, about 65% of India’s subscriber base still uses feature phones. With the base price starting at Rs 3,000, the feature phone users are soon going to have an upgrade. They are soon going to adopt to the latest technology and make video calls instead of the typical voice calls. Reliance Jio smartphones are sold under the LYF brand with price tags as low as Rs 3,499. These smartphones come bundled with Jio SIMs. Setting a new benchmark, the new feature phone, with a Rs 999 tag, will allow more people to go mobile.

And at Rs 1,000 or thereabouts, the phone can potentially disrupt the market for Jio mobile phones below Rs. 3000 and Rs. 1000 have already started attracting online consumers. 

As per a recent report in The Economic Times, Reliance Jio is working with domestic manufacturers like Lava to manufacture these phones. Also, the phones will be partly subsidized to keep the price within the range of Rs 1,000 – Rs 1,500. These phones will carry both Jio and Lava branding and will be sold through respective retail channels, so that they can reach to a wider market.

After making incision on the revenues of their competitors as well as smartphone companies by offering free voice calls and sub Rs 3000 4G smartphones respectively, Reliance now launches 4G feature phones for Rs. 1000. The strategically planned 4G Jio feature phones are touted to be the cheapest 4G phones in the world, and may cost between Rs 1000 and Rs 1500.

Apart from Reliance Jio smartphones, the motive behind bringing 4G feature phones is to offer VoLTE feature in the budget phones. These phones will have VoLTE capability so that the users can make free voice calls, the main priority of that kind of user, and the most lucrative offer from Jio.

Now for many, VoLTE mobile phones must be a new thing. So let’s have a quick sneak peek into what is VoLTE phone?

Unlike traditional GSM technology used by most of the telecom operators, which distinguish the process through which voice and data flow through their networks, VoLTE networks enable compatible mobile phones to make voice calls using data.

To summarize, the caller’s voice is converted into packets of data and is re-converted to voice before it reaches the receiver and vice versa. Calls are made using the phone dialer as is normally done.

Reliance Jio that had made its much-hyped entry into the Indian telecom sector with pan-India 4G service offerings and investment of close to Rs 2-lakh crores, is no willing to tap this market, as it can not solely rely on just smartphones for its business that is based on data consumption.
