Airtel and Karbonn have launched today two new Android powered 4G smartphones at the price of a feature phone under Airtel’s ‘Mera Pehla Smartphone’ initiative, which is aimed at enabling every Indian to buy a 4G smartphone and get on to the digital super highway.
The ‘A1 Indian’ 4G smartphone will be available at an effective price of Rs 1799 (compared to MRP of Rs 4390) and the ‘A41 Power’ comes at an effective price of Rs 1849 (compared to MRP of Rs 4290).
Both 4G smartphones come bundled with a monthly pack of Rs 169 from Airtel, which offers generous data and calling benefits. For the ‘A1 Indian’ 4G smartphone, the customer needs to make a down payment of Rs 3299 and for the ‘A41 Power’ 4G smartphone the down payment is Rs 3349. Customers need to make 36 continuous monthly recharges of Rs 169 pack from Airtel. The customer will get a cash refund of Rs 500 after 18 months and another Rs 1000 after 36 months, taking the total cash benefit to Rs 1500.
In case the customer does not wish to opt for the Rs 169 bundled plan, she/he has the flexibility of doing recharges of any denomination and validity as per individual requirements. However, to claim the cash refund benefit, recharges worth Rs 3000 must be done within the first 18 months (to claim the first refund installment of Rs 500) and another Rs 3000 over the next 18 months (to claim the second refund installment of Rs 1000).
Both devices come with a full touch 4 inc screen, 1 GB RAM, Dual SIM Slots, Dual Camera along with a host of features. These phones run on Android 7.0 Nougat OS and offer full access to all apps on Google Play Store, including YouTube, Facebook and WhatsApp. In addition, both smartphones come preloaded with MyAirtel App, Airtel TV and Wynk Music to offer a great self-serve and content experience to customers.
These phones will also be available on Amazon India starting next week.
