Airtel offers 4G smartphone in partnership with Karbonn at Rs1,399

JioPhone

The smartphone offered by Airtel "Karbonn A 40 Indian" is originally priced at Rs 2,899 but Airtel is providing the phone at an "effective price" of Rs 1,399 under the offer. Under the "Mera Pehla 4G Smartphone" activity, Airtel will band together along with numerous versatile handset producers to make an "open biological system" of moderate 4G smartphones and offer them for sale to the public for basically the cost of a feature phone, Airtel included its official statement.

"As the market leader and pioneer of 4G services in India, Airtel's aspiration is to digitally empower every Indian with high speed data access". We are delighted to partner with Karbonn to remove barriers to smartphone adoption and enable millions of Indians to leapfrog to a full touchscreen smartphone experience.

Airtel says that it will be partnering with multiple mobile handset manufacturers to launch more affordable 4G phones at low prices, and match the price of a feature phone. The dual-SIM phone runs Android Nougat software and is backed by a 1,400mAh battery.

Along with the 4G smartphone, Airtel also unveiled a bundled tariff plan for the smartphone Rs. 169, which is also in-line competition with Jio's Rs. 153 plan for JioPhone users.

A client should make an initial installment of Rs 2,899 for the 4G phone and make 36 constant month to month recharge plans of Rs 169, Airtel said.

Amazon Launches Prime Student Program with No Annual Commitment
The catch: parents will be notified of each purchase via text or email, and will, by default, have to approve or deny each one. If there's a mistake in ordering, parents will be able to cancel and return any item as long as it meets Amazon's policies.

However, much like the JioPhone's effective price tag of Rs 0, this effective Rs 1,399 price of the Karbonn smartphone is at best slightly misleading.

Bharti Airtel, the country's largest telecom company, has tied up with mobile maker Carbon to compete with Reliance Jio.

Karbonn A40 Indian is a 4G smartphone that supports dual SIM slot.

Airtel's taking Reliance Jio head-on with a new low-priced 4G smartphone to rival the latter's Rs 0 JioPhone.

Reliance Jio said the "effective price" of its JioPhone was 'Rs 0.' Later the company's terms and conditions pointed out that customers would have to pay almost Rs 6,000 for the free JioPhone. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, FM, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). The phone packs 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card. This cashback comes to your Airtel Payments bank and you don't need to return your device for cashback. "Although, to guarantee the money discount advantage, recharge plans of worth Rs. 3,000 must be done inside the initial 18 months (to assert the main discount portion of Rs. 500) and another Rs. 3,000 throughout the following 18 months (to guarantee the second discount portion of Rs. 1000), Airtel included". As far as the cameras are concerned, the Karbonn A40 Indian packs a 2-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 2-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

This is a comparison between Airtel smartphone and Reliance Jio Phone based on specifications and features. Since the Karbonn A40 is an Android phone, you get access to all the popular apps including Google's suite of apps such as Gmail, Google Maps, and so on.
