Reliance JioPhone effect: Airtel partners with Karbonn to launch 4G smartphone at Rs 1399

Airtel partners with Karbonn to roll out 4G enabled feature phone; here's how much it costs

India's largest telecom provider Bharti Airtel Ltd on Wednesday said that it has partnered with Karbonn Mobiles to offer a 4G smartphone at a price of Rs1,399.

For the first time the company is lining up with mobile handset manufacturers to bring such bundled 4G smartphones. "This is yet another step in our ongoing journey to deeply understand customers and bring innovation that delights them", Raj Pudipeddi, Director - Consumer Business & CMO, Bharti Airtel, said in a statement. Airtel is however, upping the game by launching a 4G smartphone instead of just a 4G feature phone. 'Mera Pehla 4G Smartphone" (also called "My First Smartphone') which was made by Airtel and Karbon, is aimed at an "enabling every Indian to buy a 4G smartphone and get onto the digital superhighway market", said by Airtel company. It comes with a 4-inch touchscreen display, a 1,400 mAh battery, 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage (expandable to 32GB). Making it a total cash back of INR 1,500. It comes with a 2-megapixel camera on the rear and a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front.

The Karbonn A40 Indian smartphone will come with "full touchscreen experience, dual SIM slots and access to all popular apps like YouTube, WhatsApp, and Facebook".

Airtel India has partnered with Karbonn to launch a budget 4G VoLTE smartphone, and this also indicates that the network provider has stepped into the VoLTE segment. Through this association, we aim at strengthening our reach with the consumer that resides at the heart of smart telephony.

The Jio 4G's special plan for JioPhone costs Rs 149 for prepaid users and Rs 149 + GST for postpaid users. During the course of the next three years, the customer can claim a cash refund of Rs 500 after 18 months and another Rs 1,000 after 36 months, but unlike the JioPhone the phone still remains the customer's property. You will have to get a Rs 153 recharge when you purchase the feature phone. Unlike JioPhone, the Airtel 4G Phone user can keep the device even after claiming the refund amount. Under the Rs. 169 offer from Airtel, you will get unlimited calls and 0.5GB data for 28 days.

The major difference between these two offers is JioPhone is 4G feature phone, though capable of most smartphone functions, and Airtel's is a true smartphone, though with basic specifications. All smartphones under this initiative will be available at leading mobile retail stores across the country. Finally, the phone comes with support for 22 Indian languages.

The Reliance JioPhone is essentially a smartphone in a feature phone form factor. 91mobiles broke the exclusive news last month that the device will be priced below Rs 2,000, and rightly so, as the first device that the telco is offering in partnership with Karbonn will cost you Rs 1,399, albeit with a catch.
