The pack comes with a price tag of Rs 97 and it will offer unlimited internet, unlimited calling, and messages every month. Micromax says that the Bharat 1 will start retailing from October 20.

Like the JioPhone, the Bharat 1 is 4G VoLTE enable, however BSNL does not offer 4G VoLTE services as of yet. This gives the Bharat 1 a big edge over the Jio Phone. It has a 2.4-inch QVGA screen.

The Micromax Bharat 1 is powered by an entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that supports 4G VoLTE network. It is backed by a 2000mAH battery inside and even features two cameras; 2MP on the back and a VGA quality shooter in the front. The feature supports 22 Indian languages and comes loaded with a suite of entertainment apps ranging from Live TV to music, movies, and videos. The device also comes with the UPI app for digital payment. If you do not want to use BSNL, you are also free to use the phone with any other telecom operator. Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma said the "effective cost" of using the Micromax Bharat-1 will be Rs. 3,364 in the first year, compared to Rs. 3,336 on Jio Phone.

Micromax Bharat-1 is both powerful and affordable.
