The entry of Reliance Jio has changed the economic picture of whole telecom sector.As it enters the market, it provided free data and voice call.This prompted many customer to change their network to Jio and as many did so, it left other telecom player in a big loss. With such a low priced 4G feature phone, the impact of the Reliance Jio will be felt not only in the telecom industry but also among feature phone manufacturers.

Coming to the connectivity features, the phone supports Cat 4 LTE Band 3,5,40 with Dual SIM (mini SIM + nano SIM) support.

Talking about the camera specifications of Jio 4G feature phone, it will have a 2-megapixel back camera and a VGA camera at front.

Reports indicate that this phone would run on a 2000mAh battery. The phone appears to be running on KAI OS which apparently is a forked version of Firefox OS (based on HTML5), developed by a firm with the same name in Hong Kong. The phone also supports Bluetooth, as well as video calling. There are also reports that Jio's 4G include smartphone will be declared at Rs 500 and now the indicated gadget has released revealing the plan and particulars.

However, if the regulator takes a firm decision on minimum floor pricing of voice and data benefits, Reliance Jio will be the most affected operator, it seems. If this phone launches then it will be first 4G mobile of Rs.500.
