JIO launches New LYF C451 Budget Phone
JIO has launched a new 4G Volte mobile for the budget buyers under the sub-brand LYF. The new LYF C451 comes with VOLTE support and costs Rs. 4,999.
It will be available for purchase from the Reliance LYF e-commerce portal as well as select reliance digital stores. Moreover, it is only available in the white color option and comes with 20% more data offer from JIO.
Key Hardware Specs and Features
For starters, it comes with a rather small display measuring 4.5 Inches. The display has an FWVGA resolution (854*480) pixels with 218 PPi pixel density. Additionally, the screen is protected by the Asahi glass but does not have the 2.5 D curve glass coating.
The LYF C451 runs on the 2 years old Android Marshmallow 6.0 and there is no information if it will get the Android Nougat update.
Moreover, most of the JIO phones come with dated OS and JIO has not paid much attention to the point that a lot of Indians want the latest OS along with decent hardware.
Further, powering the mobile is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 Quad-Core processor with a clock speed of 1.3 GHz. Additionally, it comes with the Adreno 304 GPU for gaming graphics-intensive tasks.
Also, we have just 1 GB Ram and there is 8 GB of internal storage expandable up to 128 GB using the micro-sd card slot.
The Dual sim phone comes with 5 Megapixel rear camera with Auto-focus and LED Flash. There is also a basic 2 Megapixel front-facing camera for clicking selfies and making video calls.
What’s more, it offers a decent battery life as it has a 2800 mAH capacity battery which can easily last all day long on 4G network. However, the phone is not sleek, measures 9.8 mm in thickness and even weighs 163 grams.
Lastly, the LYF C451 comes with 4G LTE and Volte support, and even supports WIFI, Bluetooth 4.2, USB OTG.
Overall the LYF phone comes with some decent features for the price but is not one of the most specs loaded mobile in the Sub 5K price range.
