Reliance Jio is preparing to launch its LYF-branded Smartphones by the first week of February reported in to be atleast 13 cities. These LYF-branded Smartphones are already being collected by Retail store in offline market way before its launch.
I have also encountered with one of these LYF-branded smartphone and they are pretty good smartphone with good build quality. According to rtn.asia reports, the thirteen cities include the five metros — Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore, plus Baroda, Kochi, Hyderabad, Pune, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Indore and Patna.
The one I have seen was from mid-range which flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor paired with Adreno 405 GPU with 2GB Ram and 16GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded using a microSD card.
You get 13-megapixel rear cameras at the back, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera up front. It runs on Android Lollipop. Besides 4G LTE connectivity, the talking points of these smartphones under the LYF brand are their VoLTE and VoWiFi capabilities. Its is said to be priced about Rs 16,990 in offline market.
However, there are also 5-inch devices with Snapdragon 410 chipset will be priced as low as Rs 5,000, and will come with 720p display, making them very competitive in India’s smartphone market
There is more to go as these LYF-branded Smartphones come with the company’s own fully-functional SIM cards and are likely to carry 50 GB of free 4G data, 5,000 minutes of free talk time on Reliance Jio 4G network and 5,000 free SMS. At Rs 100 per GB and Rs 0.50 per minute and SMS, these freebies are worth Rs 10,000 (Rs 5000+2,500+2,500).
The offers are lucrative from Reliance towards new Smartphone buyers whether online or offline. So what you thing are you looking forward to this?
