Micromax is working on an entry level 4G VoLTE feature phone that will compete with Reliance JioPhone. According to a latest report from the Economic Times, the Bharat One 4G VoLTE feature phone will be launched in the first week of October for about Rs 2,000.
In comparison the JioPhone is priced at Rs. 1,500. Micromax is teaming up with BSNL for free voice and bundled data offers. A Micromax executive told ET that the Bhara One phone will sport a larger display, more battery life and a sharper phone camera than what feature phones currently offer. Other specifications about the Bharat One phone are not known as of now.
Micromax executive told ET,
The idea is to have a device that can give competition to Reliance’s JioPhone. There is a huge market of 500 million feature phone users who would want to have more than one option.
