The company recently partnered with Reliance Jio for Jio welcome offer that lets you get a Jio SIM with free data, voice calls, SMS and host of Jio apps till December 31st, 2016.
It comes pre-loaded with SOS-Be Safe emergency response app on its power-packed smartphone Videocon Cube 3 that has Alert, Walk with ME and reach on time features. The power button of the phone acts as an SOS button that can be customised to send alerts with the GPS location to friends. Walk with ME sends location of a user at regular intervals to emergency contacts and Reach On Time sends an alert if a user hasn’t reached a particular destination at the set time.
The company said that ‘Panic Button’ feature will be across its entire smartphone portfolio, after government recently mandated all mobile phones sold in India from January 1, 2017 should feature panic button.
