Know the details of pre-booking Reliance's 4G feature phone JioPhone

Intex Turbo+ 4G VoLTE feature phone in India

JP Morgan believes that the incumbents would counter JioPhone by tying up with original equipment manufacturers to bring to the market their versions of the VoLTE feature phones which it said would be more likely once they have a threshold VoLTE (Voice over LTE) network up and running. The report also said, "The talks are on".

As it now appears, JioPhone users won't have to look further as Reliance and Facebook engineering teams have come together to work on a forked version of WhatsApp that will work exclusively on JioPhone.

The firm also expects a challenge for Jio and it said that unlike the battles drawn between new comer and incumbent rivals over service pricing plane, the new one would be fought on the product front.

The phone was launched by Mukesh Ambani at the Annual General Meeting of the Reliance Industry. As per the plans unveiled at the AGM, any interested party need only pay a refundable deposit of Rs 1,500 to get the device.

The report from Factor Daily suggests that talks between Reliance Jio and WhatsApp are "preliminary". The phone also supports FM Radio, the entire suite of Jio content apps including JioTV and JioMusic and also includes support for voice commands. Once you register the details, you will receive all the details and latest updates regarding JioPhone launch on your mobile phone via SMS, and also on your given email id.

Currently, JioPhone won't be able to support WhatsApp with its KaiOS base that comes from Firefox operating system.

Due to this operating system JioPhone was speculated not to support WhatsApp in the initial phase but users may be able to use other applications like Facebook.

Jio claimed to have a user base of 12.5 crore in India. With new feature phones making a comeback in the Indian market with 4G VoLTE, it will be interesting to see brands develop lite or toned down versions for such phones. Jio customers, who enjoyed data services at 4G speed for three months at low cost, can now continue to avail the benefits with a newly launched recharge pack priced at Rs. 399.

August is here and pre-booking of JioPhones are on the top of the priority list for many.
