Rs. 999 Jio Phone Offer
Previously, it was heard that Reliance Jio is planning to launch two 4G smartphones under the low budget range. According to previous rumors, Jio could launch two 4G smartphones with the price range of Rs. 999 and Rs. 1,499 respectively. But the official announcement made by Mukesh Ambani has ended all the rumors and now it is clear that Jio Phone will come with the price of Rs. 0 and users will be able to get the Jio Phone for absolutely free.
However, the security amount of Rs. 1,500 is necessary to deposit to buy the Jio Phone. The users will be able to pre-book Jio Free Phone from 24th August. For booking and registration of the, you have to go to the official website of Reliance Jio.
According to the recent report of JP Morgan, it would be a difficult task to locked the users in the period of three years with the single SIM featured phone as most of the people uses multi-SIM cell phones.
However, there are bright chances for Reliance Jio to get a head start of around 1 year. JP Morgan said, “It is only fair to expect some challenge for RJio as unlike the battles saw so far between RJio and the incumbents which were fought on the ARPU/pricing plane, this one will be fought on the product front.”
JP Morgan added, “To the extent that RJio’s challenges to achieving product acceptability for the JioPhone at current terms are nontrivial, we see more benign implications for the incumbents.”
JP Morgan said, “We think the stakes could actually be higher for the OEMs (that are not engaged with RJio), who would not want to left out of this new phone segment as their existing bread-and-butter feature phone business comes under threat. So, incumbents may be actually able to exercise leverage over the OEMs in the coming months.”
According to TelecomTalk, JP Morgan claim in his report, “Is JioPhone largely an up-trade proposition for the low-end ARPU sub segments or can it also do enough to persuade consumers to down-trade as well? – In our view, the answer to this would really depend on whether consumers are content enough with the experience/performance of the JioPhone and find compromises in down-trade acceptable. Then, there is also the matter of finding the trade-off between following a relatively walled ecosystem (which no doubt helps propagate RJio’s family of proprietary apps) vs. an open ecosystem.”

The chairman of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Mukesh Ambani has made the official announcement for the Jio Phone at AGM on 21st July. Reliance Jio is all set to launch the cheapest smartphone of the world as it will come with the price of Rs. 0.
