Gadget freaks will be on cloud nine as India's largest telecom operator Bharti Airtel is gearing up to introduce Rs 2,500-2,700 4G smartphone anytime soon. In order to make this happen, the telecommunications services company is in talks with multiple handset makers and will partner with one of them.
According to reports, Mukesh Ambani's JioPhone has already received over 6 million pre-orders in just 3 days time.
While Jio is offering its users an Internet-enabled feature phone for a refundable deposit of Rs. 1,500, Airtel users may avail a full-fledged 4G smartphone if they prepare their mind to shell out a little more.
Moreover, Airtel customers have reasons to cheer further as the telecom operator is coming up with a bunch of exciting data and voice plan around Diwali 2017.
"The company is talking to various handset manufacturers to bring a Rs. 2,500 to Rs. 2,700 Android-based 4G smartphone to the market around Diwali," a source close to the operator was quoted while interacting with PTI.
"As a policy, we do not comment on market speculation," an Airtel spokesperson added further.
Though there is no final confirmation regarding the detail features and specifications of the device, latest media reports suggest that the smartphone is expected to come with a 4-inch display and will look much bigger than JioPhone which comes with 2.4 Inch QVGA display.
Airtel's 4G phone may also come with both front and back cameras along with a solid battery life. A source has disclosed these informations over the phone while talking about the same.
