Earlier we reported exclusively that LYF is will be launching the Flame 7 and the Flame 7S smartphone. The Flame 7 smartphone was launched by the company in the month of August along with the Wind 7 Smartphone. And now after 2 months the company has launched the Flame 7s smartphone. And as far as the specs of this device are concerned, it is same as what we had reported earlier. Just like the Flame 7 smartphone, this is also powered by a Quad-core 1.5GHz processor and it packs 1GB of RAM under the hood.
It comes with an 8GB of internal storage as well. This smartphone comes with an option to add an additional 32GB of internal storage with the help of a microSD card. It sports a 4″ display on the front with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and is kept powered by an 1800 mAh battery. It supports 4G VoLTE out of the box so that it can be used with the Jio 4G services. The smartphone is now available to purchase from various retails stores offline. Stay tuned for more info on this.
Earlier- In less than a year, LYF emerged as the third largest 4G smartphone manufacturer in India. Though there is nothing to do with the specifications or the features of their smartphones, the craze of LYF smartphones is built over the Jio preview offer that includes unlimited usage of 4G data, voice calls, and SMS. Reliance is offering a free Jio 4G SIM with every LYF smartphone. Recently the company has expanded the Jio preview offer for selected Samsung Galaxy devices.
Now the latest information is that the company is planning to offer a new Jio 4G SIM with the purchase of every smartphone that costs more than Rs. 10,000. But we guess it to be limited to the purchases done at the Reliance Digital, Digital Xpress or a Digital Xpress Mini store. While there are already very affordable smartphones from LYF under the Flame series, now the company is gearing up to launch two new smartphones under the same series.
The Flame 7 and Flame 7S are new entry-level smartphones that will be launched in the next few days. We expect the devices to be priced around Rs. 3,500; whereas the already launched LYF Flame 3, Flame 4, Flame 5, and Flame 6 costs just Rs. 2,999. Both the devices supports 4G LTE and supports VoLTE for making voice calls through Jio 4G SIM. Talking about the specifications, both the devices come with a 4-inch WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution.
Under the hood, the Flame 7 and Flame 7S are powered by an unknown quad-core processor which may not give seamless multi-tasking but works fine while using one app at a time. There is 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded with the MicroSD card slot upto 32GB. The devices still run on the Android 5.1 Lollipop, and as we exclusively covered yesterday, the Water 7S will be first LYF device to come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
As of there is no information about the battery capacities of these devices. The LYF Flame 7 sports a 5MP camera on the rear and a 2MP fixedfocus camera on the front. On the other hand, the Flame 7S features a 5MP rear camera, but the selfie camera is only limited to 0.3MP resolution. As seen with the other LYF smartphones, both the above mentioned devices come with two years of manufacturer warranty where the extended second year has to be activated manually through the MyLYF app.
