And, it will help people stick together
Kumbh is one such gathering where people often lose their way around or get separated from their family.
But, the new JioPhone would be able to tackle this problem with Family Location - a feature for tracking the exact location of family members.
It will also have a feature called Lost & Found for keeping people together, but it's unclear how it would work.
Added devotional content, news updates, and games
Along with location-based capabilities, the 'Kumbh JioPhone' would also offer devotional content with its Kumbh Darshan (for video telecast of events) and Kumbh Radio (for hymns) features.
Plus, you'll also get regular news updates on everything happening in and around Kumbh and a specific suite of games and daily Kumbh quizzes to keep yourself entertained.
Existing and new JioPhone users will get these features
All Kumbh-specific capabilities introduced by Jio will be available above JioPhone's core offerings and at the same price.
Also, along with new buyers, even existing JioPhone users would be able to access these features by using JioStore on their device.
Kumbh is slated to commence from January 15, 2019, and continue till March 4, 2019.
