These LYF branded smartphones are set to go on sale through Reliance Digital stores across the country soon.

The phone supports three 4G bands, FDD Band 3(1800)/Band 5(850) and TDD Band 40(2300), which are currently held by Reliance Jio.

The entry-level LYF Flame 1 comes with underwhelming specifications for its price tag. With increasing smartphone launches from top players in the entry-level segment, Jio LYF will struggle to find enough buyers for its mediocre smartphones. However, it can try to bundle free 4G data and voice minutes offer with the device, which might attract a few buyers.
LYF smartphones are not available for purchase Reliance Digital’s online store yet. However, one can buy them through Reliance Digital physical stores across multiple cities.
