The offer requires a customer to make a downpayment of Rs 2,849 for the 4G smartphone followed by 36 monthly recharges of Rs 169. Now today, Airtel has announced its partnership with Celkon to bring us yet another affordable 4G smartphone - the Celkon Smart 4G.

Both the Celkon Smart 4G and the Karbonn A40 Indian have been around for some time.

Airtel has partnered with domestic phone maker Celkon to bring down the effective price of the Smart 4G Android phone to Rs. 1,349. Alternately, they can purchase recharges worth Rs. 3,000 in the first 18 months and another Rs. 3,000 in the next 18 months to be eligible for the refunds that subsidise the cost of the handset.

The Celkon Smart 4G now has a market price of ₹3500, however, with Airtel's bundled offers, its effective price turns out to be ₹1349.

The phone comes with Airtel bundled plan. You'll of course have to forfeit the benefits that make the Smart 4G and the A40 Indian effectively cost next to nothing but then that's a small price you'll pay for the added flexibility.

The Celkon Smart 4G is an entry-level Android smartphone with access to Google Play Store which means you can install and use nearly all the apps that are available on Play Store, including WhatsApp. Earlier this month, the Sunil Mittal company had tied up with Karbonn Mobiles to bring 4G smartphone at an effective cost of Rs 1,399. Connectivity options include: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System.

Availability - TheCelkon Smart 4G will be available at all the leading mobile stores offline.

As for the remaining specifications, Airtel Celkon Smart 4G handset has a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 3.2-megapixel primary camera with flash, 2-megapixel front camera, microSD card support up to 32GB, and 1500mAh battery. The telecom network also adds that the "ownership of the smartphone is completely with the customer and there is no need to return the device to Airtel/Karbonn at any point to claim the cash benefit".

Bharti Airtel in partnership with Indian smartphone company Celkon has introduced a new entry-level 4G VoLTE smartphone.

Like the Airtel-Karbonn offer, in case the customer thinks that the Rs. 169 plan doesn't fulfil his requirements, then she/he has the flexibility of recharging another plan of Airtel as per individual requirements.
