JIO New 4G LTE Smartphones Launched LYF Water 4 and Water 6

Reliance JIO is breathing Fire and Water on competition, ahead of it’s full commercial launch. Reliance’s “LYF” has released 2 new smartphones in the “Water” series.

The new Lyf Water 4 and Water 6 are targeting the lower end market judging by the price tag and want the first time users to experience the 4G LTE network. Both phones are priced under ₹ 10,000 range with Water 4 costing at ₹ 7,599 and Water 6 at  ₹ 8,999. The smartphones comes with extended warranty of 24 month, which is definitely good to have if you are buying a budget smartphone and intend to use it for longer period.

The LYF Water 4 flaunts a 5 inch HD display with 294 ppi with Asahi Dragontrail Glass. Powering the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz along with 2 GB of RAM.

The phone sports a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5Mp front shooter. While the storage is a let down as it features 16Gb storage which is further non expendable. The phone measures in at 142x70x7.7mm, and weighs at 138.5 g.

The phone comes with Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 3G, 4G, and VoLTE along with bunch of sensors; proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer.

LYF Water 4 & 6 runs on 2920 mAh battery power which gives 15 hours of talk-time on 4G, 290 hours standby time, 5 hours of HD video playback and 19 hours of audio playback. The Water 4 is available in only White color.

Software wise both the phones run on Android Lollipop 5.1 version, which might be a bummer for a lot of people and the update to M is also not been announced by the company as of yet.

While the other variant Water 6 has only handful of differences.

The Water 6 features 32 GB storage without any expandability option and is available in White with Gold color options. The Water 6 is slightly thicker and heavy measuring at 142×70.5x8mm and weighs at 136g.

Both smartphones miss out on fingerprint sensors, while there are many competition smartphones offering fingerprint scanner in some of more affordable devices.

The Water 6 will likely face a tough competition from top selling devices like “Redmi Note 3 2 GB variant priced at Rs. 9,999 which sports a metal body, fingerprint sensor and a much better overall specs.

These smartphones will also get an unlimited Voice and 4G LTE data bundle for 3 months from Reliance which actually has a value of more than Rs. 3000 at least and that makes these devices cheaper compared to the competition offering.
