Similar to its predecessor, the JioPhone, this new device comes equipped with a wide array of features. Users can enjoy bundled services with Jio Cinema and Jio Saavn for over-the-top (OTT) entertainment. Furthermore, the phone supports high-definition calling, boasts camera capabilities, and features JioPay service, allowing users to make payments via the unified payments interface (UPI). In comparison to feature phone offerings from other operators, the Jio Bharat phone offers a 30% cheaper monthly plan, along with seven times more data, unlimited voice calls, and 14 GB of data for ₹123 per month. Meanwhile, voice calls and 2 GB of data cost ₹179 with another operator. Reliance Jio Chairman, Mr. Akash Ambani, emphasized, "There are still 250 million mobile phone users in India who remain 'trapped' in the 2G era, unable to tap into basic features of the internet at a time when the world stands at the cusp of a 5G revolution."

Mr. Akash Ambani further added, "The new Jio Bharat phone represents a hub of innovation, showcasing our commitment to delivering significant and genuine value for different user segments with practical, real-life use cases."
