Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance Jio today launched 4G feature phone at the 40th annual general meeting (AGM) in Mumbai. The Phone will be free, but customers will have to deposit a fee of Rs 1500 for security purposes which will be refundable after three years on returning the phone. It means the phone will be available at an effective cost of zero. Besides that, he also announced its cable TV device.
India ka Intelligent SmartPhone – Jio Phone!
The Jio Phone was presented by Akash and Isha Ambani, exhibiting the phone’s support voice commands, along with feature phone functionality. Isha Ambani said that the phone looks simple by design, to guarantee that it is easy to use. The phone comes with inbuilt apps and browser installed aside from Jio’s offerings too. On stage, we caught glimpses of the JioPhone browser, Facebook, and also PM Modi’s Mann Ki Baat broadcast.
Jio will also add NFC support to the Phone to allow tap and payment solutions with an associated bank account, Akash Ambani said. It will also assist UPI payments, and debit and credit card payments, comparable to Samsung Pay, he said.
JioPhone will make the 2G Feature Phone Obsolete!
Jio phone’s both voice and data will be free with an affordable monthly plan of Rs 153 along with the Jio apps; users can also choose to give Rs. 309 per month to get all that, plus the support for mirroring your screen on a TV, via a cable that can even be plugged into any TVs including old CRT TVs that you have. The Company is also offering weekly sachet plans for Rs 54, and a two-day plan of Rs 24. This plan will put an end to unaffordable plans for Indians forever, said Ambani.
“On the Jio Phone voice will be free forever, second, the 50 crore feature phone users in India still don’t have access to the basic internet. Today I consider every young people in India should get information at their fingertips and that is what jio phone is all about. To get a digital life, everyone needs access to data at affordable charges. So from this 15th August, I am declaring digital freedom for all feature phone users. Jio Phone will give them access to unlimited data on the Jio phone, said Ambani at Reliance AGM.
