Micromax Bharat One feature phone expected to launch on October 17th”

After Reliance Jio and Airtel, BSNL has now come up with its VoLTE-capable feature phone in partnership with Micromax. As per reports, in a event in Delhi, the duo, which recently teamed up might possibly announced the new Bharat One feature phone. Essentially, the Bharat 1 comes bundled with a Rs 97 BSNL Unlimited Plan, in which users get unlimited calling hours, unlimited data, free roaming and free SMS, with a one-month validity.

Rahul Sharma, Co-founder Micromax, "Both Micromax and BSNL have been working with an aim to bring the next wave of unconnected users on the Internet". "Connecting the last mile- to the Internet and relevant information - is an important part of the strategy for both BSNL and Micromax".

"We are proud that we are partnering with Micromax, a home-grown player which has been a key player in India's growth journey and has contributed more than 150 million mobile users and this number is ever increasing", said Anupam Srivastava, CMD, BSNL.

With "Bharat-1", Micromax and BSNL are aiming to provide a 4G phone to India's 500 million population that does not have access to the Internet. Sale of the device begins from October 20. The device will come as a competitor to the JioPhone (first impressions), which is a 4G and VoLTE-enabled offering.

The Bharat 1 supports 22 Indian languages, a preloaded Micromax Entertainment app for Live TV, music, movies and videos streaming. But, there is still a huge gap when it comes to data adoption due to lack of affordable phones and low cost data. "This will not only increase BSNL subscribers but also strengthen their financial position", Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha said while launching the service. Users will not be restricted to BSNL's network in the Bharat 1 mobile. Digit reported that the phone should offer 4G connectivity and support VoLTE. In terms of camera, the BSNL mobile has a 2-megapixel rear camera and a VGA camera at the front. Bharat 1 will be totally make in India. The device has a bigger 2,500mAh battery, while the rest of its specs are the same as the Bharat 3.
