JioPhone Rivals?

Well, the Dizo Star 500 and Dizo Star 300 feature phones have been launched with 2G connectivity support. Given that the feature phone market is moving towards 4G for the past few years, it remains to be known why these new phones miss out on the same. Also, users of these phones can use any network except Jio as this telco uses 4G-only services and Jio SIM cards cannot be used on non-4G devices.

Given that there is no 4G support, these feature phones do not compete against JioPhone that provides 4G support and a slew of other attractions such as support for WhatsApp and more.
