On Wednesday, Sunil Mittal of India’s top telecom operator Bharti Airtel Ltd said that it had partnered with Karbonn Mobiles to introduce a cheaper 4G smartphone.
This move is taken to face the cut-throat competition released by Mukesh Ambani of Jio’s launch of a low priced 4G phone in July that has driven other telecoms against the wall.
One has to make a one-time refundable deposit of Rs 1,500 for Jio Phone. The company even added that the price of this 4G phone would be cut by nearly 60 percent to Rs 1,399 ($21.45) and will include a monthly pack of Rs 169 from the telecom operator.
The buyer will have to make a security deposit of nearly Rs 2,899 for the smartphone….
From this payment, the purchaser will be refunded 500 rupees after 18 months, and the other remaining 1,000 rupees will be given after three years making the total cash advantage up to Rs 1,500.
Jio’s troublesome cost has conquered the telecom industry due to which the profits of operators such as Idea Cellular Ltd and Bharti Airtel have diminished in no time.
Bharti Airtel declared that this would be the first of many alliances with handset manufacturers to bring best budget 4G smartphones into the big market and further the effective price is 60% less than the market price of the phone.
The customer needs to make 36 regular monthly recharges of Rs 169…..
Airtel explained how the firm arrived at the Rupees 1,399 effective price.
The Android-based 4G enabled smartphone, Karbonn A40 Indian, has dual SIM slots and access to apps such as YouTube, Facebook, and WhatsApp.
The deal comes packed with a monthly recharge pack, data, calling and cashback benefits….
Users can go in for recharge of any price and validity according to the individual needs in case they don’t want to recharge or Rs 169 offer.
