In the pictures given to TechPP by the anonymous user, we can see that the feature phone is branded “Lyf” which is the smartphone manufacturing unit of Jio. The phone’s candy-bar design consists of a 2.4-inch colour display with an English and Hindi keypad on the bottom. There is a home button surrounded by action keys which double up as a torchlight key.

The rear of the phone has a somewhat textured finish and houses the speaker beside a camera. Yes, there’s a camera as well!

The phone supports VoLTE 4G and comes with a 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The phone supports dual-SIM and has a microSD slot for expanding the memory.

According to the tipster, the Jio feature phone can run some apps like Jio TV among others but we’ll rest our case till we actually see the device. According to the source who told this to TechPP, the feature phone runs on KAI OS which seems to be a modified version of Firefox OS. It also has an app store where Facebook and Jio apps are listed. The phone even has a front -facing VGA camera! Powering the Jio feature phone is a 2,000 mAh battery.

The price of the Lyf branded feature phone by Jio is expected to be somewhere between Rs 1,000 to Rs 1,500. If it goes according to plan, Jio would be in a position to disrupt an important segment and make its entry into the hands of users who cannot afford smartphones in the country.
