Jio users can receive up to 25GB of additional 4G data on purchase of Intex smartphones as part of a partnership between the two companies. As part of the offer, Reliance Jio consumers can get 5GB data on top per recharge of Rs. 309 or above, valid for maximum of five recharge cycles. This is the latest such partnership Jio has made with smartphone brands operating in the country. The telecom operator – which has 130 million consumers on its network – just had the first anniversary of its operations earlier this week, where Chairman Mukesh Ambani congratulated the employees for creating several records over the past year.

“The world’s largest end-to-end IP network of Jio and Intex’s pan-India mobile distribution network will together be a delight for consumers,” said Nidhi Markanday, Director and Business Head, Mobiles, Intex Technologies, in a statement. The offer is limited to a maximum of five recharges.

Late last month, Chinese manufacturer Oppo also partnered with Reliance Jio – which has the fastest 4G download speeds in the country – to offer data benefits to its smartphone customers. Those customers who purchase an Oppo smartphone and enrol themselves in Jio Prime membership will get additional data benefits.

As per the new offer, buyers of Oppo’s F3, F3 Plus, and F1 Plus smartphone models can get additional data up to 10GB on every recharge of Rs. 309 or above (making it up to 60GB of additional data). On the other hand, those customers who purchase Oppo F1s, A57, A37, and A33 models can get additional data up to 7GB on every recharge (making it up to 42GB of additional data). Notably, customers can avail these additional data benefits for a maximum of six Jio recharges.

The company is also launching its own 4G feature phone – named Jio Phone – that offers high-speed Internet access with recharge packs of Rs. 153 per month. The handset is “essentially free” though consumers need to pay Rs. 1,500 as security deposit; deliveries begin on September 21.

Mobile handset shipment this year is estimated to touch 265 million with feature phones forming about 59 percent of the overall market, research firm CMR today said.

According to the CMR report, of the total shipment, 116 million are estimated to be smartphones. About 78.4 million handsets were shipped during the third quarter of 2016 while for nine months ended September, the total shipment was 197.5 million, it added.

“In line with previous insights from CMR, the third quarter of 2016 for mobile handset industry in India ended with a strong reaffirmation of the fact that it would take a longer than expected time for India to become a smartphone-only market,” it said.

Feature phones still form about 59 percent of the overall market and can’t be wiped off anytime soon, it added. “There is a mismatch between the technology road map and the user priorities. While the ecosystem is working on to make data services more affordable, accessible and meaningful for the subscribers, the majority is still looking for reliable voice communication,” CMR Principal Analyst (Telecoms) Faisal Kawoosa said.

He added that this is forcing even a future-ready network like Jio to work on innovative models of launching voice-over LTE-enabled 4G feature phones to tap the voice potential.
As per the report, Samsung led the overall mobile handset industry (24.5 percent share) as well as feature phone and smartphone categories with similar market shares.

It was followed by Lava (9.7 percent) and Intex (9.3 percent), respectively.

In the smartphone category, Lenovo was the second-largest player with 10.4 percent share, followed by Micromax (7.5 percent).

As for feature phones, Lava and Intex had 12.3 percent and 11 percent share, respectively. Interestingly, 66 percent of the phones shipped in the third quarter were Made in India.
