Reliance has been keeping the Indian consumers waiting for the 4G services, though making them available to a selected few through the Invites System, later followed by selling phones & giving access to their services. As we had reported months back, the 4G services were bundled with freebies like unlimited data & voice calls; reliance has been promoting their LYF Branded Smartphones under these offers.
The current price drops are on the Flame 2, Flame 4, Flame 5, Flame 6, Water 2 & the Wind 6 Smartphones. You can purchase these devices now at any Reliance Digital Stores or any Reliance approved retail stores who are also able to offer you with the same offers that the brand offers along with the 4G SIM & its activation. Do make a note that these SIM Cards are locked with these phones for the first three months during which you can avail all the freebies.
To avail the 4G services, you have to purchase a new Smartphone, in which case most users opted for the budget segment devices. To give you an example of this you can find the pricing of the Flame sub-series under LYF that was earlier priced mostly at Rs 3,999. According to our sources, Reliance is going to offer a huge discount on this particular series and primarily to a few selected models, with the pricing going to as low as Rs 2999. The featured image above clearly shows that a total of 6 devices are going to get a heavy discount with 3 of them that were priced Rs 3999 will now get a flat Rs 1000 discount. In fact, all of these 6 devices matter the most in the LYF Series because all of these customers would be getting the 3 months free unlimited 4G Data offer along with free unlimited voice calls & data.
Talking about the Reliance Jio 4G Services, we had earlier mentioned on how to get the SIM Card, the Expected Reliance jio 4g plans along with the list of VOLTE Smartphones you can buy. The best part is that the initial invites that were available only through the distributors are now available directly when you fill the interest on jio.com where we also found the Jiofi listed.
Regarding the other benefits that a customer could get, Reliance is offering 2 years of warranty on all their LYF Smartphones range, unlike the other Smartphone Brands that offer just 1 year of warranty. This is clearly icing on the cake because most of the buyers of these entry level smartphones are already on a budget & would take this as an important factor while making the decision. Apart from this pricing drop, it’s clear that Reliance has already started taking serious steps to not just expand their 4G user base but also indirectly scale up the LYF brand that was literally not known to anyone, while has been in the news for a few right reasons. These steps will clearly hit all the other brands like Intex, Micromax & Lava who have been doing well in the below Rs 5000 price segment, especially because of the 4G support on all the devices reliance has been selling.
