Reliance Jio has launched India's most affordable 4G phone. It is called the Jio Bharat phone, and it is going to be available for just Rs 999 in the market. While India is witnessing a rapid 5G rollout, there are still many users in the country who can't afford a basic 4G phone and are utilising 2G networks. To make India "2G Mukt", Reliance Jio has brought the Jio Bharat phone for users. It is a feature phone that will be availed through a beta trial. There are still over 250 million Indians who are trapped with 2G. This phone from Jio is poised to change that!
