Reliance Jio Feature Phone @ ₹1500:
It has been widely publicised that Reliance Jio would be launching 4G VoLTE feature rich phones under ₹1500. By looking at the leaked images, one can definitely conclude that Reliance Jio candy bar feature phone has got dedicated keys for MyJio, JioTV, Jio Cinema, and Jio Music.

4G VoLTE Feature Phone - A Masterstroke:
No technical information (including the specs) has been shared about this VoLTE enabled feature rich phone. If this leaked information turns true then there would be a tsunami in the Indian telecom industry. Reliance Retail has already sold 7 million LYF handsets in India and has grabbed 5th spot in the Indian smartphone market. If Reliance can launch ultra-low-cost feature phone targeting the masses then it could be a masterstroke.
Though there is an enough demand for affordable smartphones, feature phones rule the Indian market with 55% market share. With this rumoured ₹1500 4G VoLTE feature phone, Reliance can easily penetrate much deeper into the Indian market. Currently, Reliance Jio has got 74.2 million subscribers in just 4 months of its commercial launch and can easily pocket 100 million subscribers if it can fix its connectivity problems.
