Detel, a mobile phone maker today announced a affordable feature phone with dual-SIM support at just Rs 399. Dubbed as the Detel D1+, this feature phone succeeds the earlier launched Detel D1, which created a disruption in the Indian market for Rs 349. The Detel D1+ is specially designed for visually impaired, senior citizens, and kids. This device comes with an interesting feature called ‘Talking feature.’ The Detel D1+ will be exclusively available on B2BAdda.com, from January 26, 2018.
Firstly, Detel introduced a new feature called ‘Talking Feature,’ which utilises the speaker at the rear to provide audio alerts while dialling a phone number, browsing contacts, etc. Detel launched this feature phone in the vision to ‘Connect the Unconnected.’
Talking about the features of the Detel D1+, it offers dual SIM slot, torchlight, GPRS web browser, 3D speaker, microSD card support. Interestingly, the D1+ will be available in seven colour variants. The D1+ features 1.44-inch TFT display.
Commenting on the launch, Mr Yogesh Bhatia, MD, S. G. Corporate Mobility (parent company of Detel), stated, “We are glad to bring to our customers a feature phone that is not only economical & affordable but also caters to a lot more needs of the feature phone buyers in India. India is a price sensitive market and the consumers especially in tier- 2, 3 markets, and in rural areas are cautious about their spending behaviour”
Detel says it’s aiming at the 40 crore people in India who still remain unconnected not just with the rest of the world but also within themselves. Detel has already disrupted the feature phone market with the Detel D1 feature phone earlier, and the company also partnered with state-run telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and offered the Detel D1 at Rs 499, along with free voice calling plan. There are no words on the BSNL offer availability for the Detel D1+ though.
