With the Jio 4G sim revolution, Mukesh Ambani has now announced a 4G VoLTE featured phone named as ‘India Ka Smartphone’. The phone will be available to customers at the cost of Rs. 0 but one will have to deposit a sum of Rs. 1500 if willing to buy that phone. Interestingly, this money is completely refundable after three years of returning the phone.
The buyers can also avail the Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer with this phone at just Rs. 153/month and they will get the facility of free voice calling, SMS and unlimited Data.
According to Mr. Ambani, “Out of the 78 crore phones in India, 50 crore are feature phones that cannot be used for Internet or data usage. The new phone would give “affordable” device to these 50 crore users and “end the digital exclusion in India”. He further added that the phone will be made in India from the last quarter of this year and it will be the most intelligent, affordable phone in the world- a 4G VoLTE phone supporting 24 Indian Languages.
The pre booking of the phone will start from 24th August and it will be available to the buyers from September 2017.
