Reliance Jio is working on a new phone — Not a smartphone that may soon launch at a price of Rs. 399. According to fresh reports from 91mobiles, Reliance Jio is conducting a survey with its retailers that if the Jio Phone lite will meet the requirements of underserved segments.
Phone or Smartphone?
Reliance Jio is seeking opinions on whether there is a demand for such a phone that has no internet connectivity and whose sole purpose is only for 4G voice calling option.
The phone will feature alphanumeric keypad and a small display. Other specifications are not yet revealed but we can expect the launch of this smartphone in mid-2020.
A phone without internet connectivity
A small pack worth Rs. 50 will also launch along with it and as we know that the smartphone will not support internet connectivity that means the small recharge pack will let the users do unlimited Jio-to-Jio calls and landline calls while as per IUC there will be a charge of 6 paise/min. for other network calls.
Recently, Jio eliminated its base recharge that is Rs. 49 recharge and introduced Rs. 75 pack that makes a place to launch Rs. 50 pack for the Jio phone.
