Earlier this year, Lava launched the Connect M1 4G as India’s first 4G enabled feature phone. It is priced at Rs. 3,599 and runs on Mocordroid v6.0 based on Android. In the next few days, Reliance Jio will be launching its first 4G VoLTE supported feature phone. Now, Ziox Mobiles came up with a Wi-Fi enabled feature phone called ‘S333 Wi-Fi’ priced at Rs. 1,993. Compared to other markets, feature phone still occupies a relatively major share in the Indian mobile phone market. According to the company, the S33 Wi-Fi feature phone comes with a dedicated hardware key to turn On/Off Wi-Fi.
Commenting on the launch of the S333 Wi-Fi feature phone, Deepak Kabu, Chief Executive Officer of Ziox Mobiles said,
“The launch of S333 WiFi is an important milestone in the journey of feature phones. Ziox is known for its budgeted products paired with the best functionality and our addition resonates the same philosophy”.
However, the device misses the 4G LTE connectivity and limits only to the 2G network. It sports a 2.4-inch display which should be good enough for a feature phone. The device is backed by a 1,750mAh battery and includes power saving mode to extended the battery life. There is also a MicroSD card slot for expanding the storage additionally up to 32GB. On the connectivity front, the S333 Wi-Fi comes with 2G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The device runs on Java, and we can browse the internet along with accessing social media sites. However, we can’t use apps like in Android, and there is no WhatsApp support for feature phones.
On the rear, we can also find the camera but don’t expect it to be on par with the smartphone cameras. It even has wireless FM Radio option and built-in Auto-Call recording feature. The Ziox Mobile S333 Wi-Fi supports up to 9 different Indian regional languages. It also has the SOS feature which was made mandatory by the Government of India. On the top is the bright LED torch light that can be handy in the dark or at nights. The device will be available in Black+Champagne and Black+Red color options. The Ziox Mobile S333 Wi-Fi feature phone can be purchased from all the leading retail stores across the country.
