In picture: A man carries a cup of as he walks past a Reliance Jio Infocomm 4G mobile services logo in Mumbai on September 6, 2016. As per the leaked details, the Rs 500 price phone offers above-par specs.

We can assume that Lyf's 4G VoLTE feature phone will be a plain looking device.

It also reveals that the 4G phone will be bundled with Jio Apps - Jio TV, Jio cinema, Jio music and so on.

A report from Reliance indicates that its 4G service already has 120 million subscribers since the launch of its low-priced 4G service under the Jio banner, which the tremendous growth of which eventually slowed down in the past few months.

The report also claims the phone will come with an in-built Voice Assistant with support for Indian languages that can give you weather updates, solve mathematical equations et al.

Clearly, Jio's main intention is to add as many as features in the feature phone. Coming back to the offers, Jio is now giving a discount of up to 60 pct on its smart phones. Guess we just have to wait it out and see if the phone fulfills our expectations of nearly impossible features at such an unbelievable price. The Lyf/ Jio 4G VoLTE feature phone is expected to be unveiled on July 21 at parent company Reliance's AGM, but hit the market in August. When it comes to operating system of the phone the source website points out that it runs Kai OS which is a forked version of HTML5 based Firefox OS.

What will the 4G VoLTE feature phone look like? In the camera front, the Front Camera is of VGA quality while the Rear Camera has a 2MP shooter which is placed at the back end of the phone. TRAI will meet all service provider on 21st of july to seek their views and arguments on the "minimum floor price". There is a button in the center for the torch between the navigation keys.

- Going by the speculated spec-sheet of Jio's soon-to-launch ultra-affordable 4G feature phone, well, it seems like it could be a feature phone in just body while offering nearly all the features of an entry-level smartphone.

How much will the 4G VoLTE feature phone cost?

Airtel vs Reliance Jio: Which network is faster in India? But even if the company is working on a 4G-enabled feature phone, it will be a big deal for millions of users.

Lyf F1S (black) is now selling at Rs 9,499 on the website, after a special discount of 53 percent on its original price of Rs 20,249.
