The said report suggests that the ₹500 Jio 4G VoLTE Phone could be announced at the 4G-feature phone at its annual general meeting on July 21, 2017.

In addition, a report by Telecom Talk claims the ₹500 Jio 4G VoLTE Phone will be provision for Wi-Fi tethering too, meaning a user will be able to connect multiple devices using the handset's Internet connection. However, the report also says that the handset will have app-specific USB tethering.
According to an earlier research note, the ₹500 Jio 4G VoLTE Phone will have a price tag in India of Rs. 500, after subsidizing the manufacturing cost. The leaked images also show a dedicated app store called Kai OS Plus, which could allow users to download popular apps like Facebook and WhatsApp.
