What’s more, it’s not just light on pocket but in weight as well- measuring around 95 grams only.

“Now that our JSP 20 model has triggered a substantial conversion of feature phone users to smartphone users which is in line with Prime Minister’s Digital India program, we have made the phone available on again,” says Mr. Pankaj Anand, Chief Executive Officer, Jivi Mobiles. “PM’s Digital India program envisages citizens accessing e-services on highly affordable mobile devices. We are supporting his vision of a smartphone in every Indian’s hand by 2019 by shattering the price barrier. However, this does not mean any compromise on functionality. Shortly we shall introduce lowest-priced 3G, dual-core, quad-core and octa-core phones as well,” adds Mr. Anand. 

According to Harsh Vardhan, Head – Marketing, Jivi Mobiles, “Ever since we launched Jivi JSP 20, we have been inundated with calls and messages.

Vineet Srivastava, 22, an engineering student from Kanpur, who happens to be one of the first buyers online,said, “Being able to run WhatsApp, Facebook & YouTube on an Android smartphone available at the price of a feature phone is truly amazing.
