Initial two handsets that will be widely available are – the LYF Flame 1 and LYF Wind 6, for a price of Rs 6,490 and Rs 7,090 respectively.

Commenting on the launch, the company said,“Reliance Retail has introduced its entry-level range of LYF smartphones, LYF Wind 6 and LYF Flame 1. The two devices represent one of the most affordable and superior entry-level smartphones in the Indian market,”

As of now, these smartphones by Reliance are the most feasible devices that are equipped with 4G voice or VoLTE. Although, Lenovo is reportedly planning to bring its Vibe K5 to India at these prices. Furthermore, Jio is proposing a facility to route calls over WiFi connection, which would save a lot of money for users.
