Airtel 4G Feature Phone with WhatsApp Support to Launch Next Week for Less Than Rs. 2,000



Airtel has earlier confirmed to bring its own feature phone to rival the Reliance Jio’s JioPhone. The earlier rumors also hinted the Airtel’s featurephone to run on Android Go, the lighter version of the Android OS. Last month, the company mentioned being in talks with few Indian manufacturers for the production of the device. Now, we got a lot more details about the device revealing its features, pricing, and launch date. Firstly, we hope Airtel doesn’t bring any confusing plans like what Reliance Jio did with the JioPhone.

Almost two months after announcing the JioPhone to effectively cost Rs. 0, Reliance Jio revealed several T&C’s bringing the penalty charges for returning the JioPhone before three years. To be eligible for Rs. 1,500 refund, the JioPhone users have to recharge minimum of Rs 4,500 in the first three years. Even Airtel is expected to offer special plans for its feature phone users. Unlike the JioPhone, the Airtel feature phone will be running on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

As of now, the JioPhone comes only with Jio suite of apps. Coming to the Airtel feature phone, it is said to be compatible with all the Android apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, and Youtube without any ease. Though there is no exact information, the Airtel’s feature phone is expected to cost less than Rs. 2,000 and will be launched in the first week of October. Even on the specs sheet, the Airtel feature phone looks better than JioPhone. It will be equipped with a 4-inch or a slightly smaller display.

The phone might also include 1GB of RAM compared to 512MB RAM on JioPhone. There will be two cameras placed on the front and rear of the device. With all these specifications, the Airtel feature phone will be backed by a 1,400mAh – 1,600mAh battery. Looking at all these details, the Airtel feature phone looks more promising than the JioPhone. However, we are yet to know about the Airtel’s special plan for its feature phone users. On the other hand, Jio 4G offers unlimited voice calls, SMS, and 512MB data per data for Rs. 149 monthly plan.
