Google WizPhone WP006 Specifications & Features
WizPhone is very similar to Reliance’s JioPhone. The WizPhone comes with a 4G connectivity. It’s a feature phone with 2.4 inches display along with 2MP of the rear-facing camera which is average. A VGA front-facing camera is also there for video calling. However, the quality of the cameras is very poor.
Apart from that, Google’s WizPhone WP006 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8905 chipset along with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of built-in storage. The phone is paired with a 1800mAh battery which gives sufficient talk time and standby time.
Update: Google has not launched WizPhone. However, Google has been instrumental in this launch by ensuring their digital services operate on the WizPhone through the KaiStore, so that consumers can access to a suite of Google apps like Google Assistant, Maps etc. The phone is launched by Indonesia mobile device company WizPhone in association with KaiOS.
WizPhone WP006 Price In India
As of now, Google has not announced anything about the launch of WizPhone in India. But it’s launched on Indonesia, and there, the price of WizPhone is roughly $7. If we convert it to Indian currency, the price will be around Rs 500. So, the phone will be pretty cheap in India. However, no official statement has been given about it for Indian users.
Launch Date In India
Like mentioned before, the phone is launched only on Indonesia as of now, and there’s no official statement about India launch. But until the first quarter of 2019, we might get the Google feature phone launched in India. Just wait some time, and it’s likely to be launched in India soon.
Google WizPhone WP006 Booking/ Buy Online In India
As the demand would be high, Google might sell the WizPhone in India in different sale periods like Reliance Jio did for JioPhone. On the other side, Google may also give the phone to a few beta testers before launching in India to fix the compatibility issues for Indian users.
During the sale period, the Google WizPhone might get sold on first come first serve basis which simply means, who will book WizPhone online earlier will get the phone delivered until the stock lasts. So, if you late, you’ll need to wait for the second sale.
Google can also tie-up with telecom networks in India and offer bundled data with the WizPhone WP006. For Jio, it was easy because Jio already owns today’s largest 4G network. But Google doesn’t have such infrastructure, and it’s not a player in that market too. So, possibly we will get bundled data offers with the phone.
Flash Sale In India?
The possibility is very less that Google will sell the WizPhone 4G feature phone on flash sale in India. Instead, they are more likely to partner with mobile networks for bundled packages and sell on first come first serve basis. So, if you want to grab one of the Google’s feature phone at Rs 500, keep your ears on the ground so that you can participate in the first-ever sale of Google WizPhone WP006 Booking/ Buy in India.
