Airtel has launched these smartphones in partnership with Karbonn as a part of its ‘Mera Pehla Smartphone’ initiative under which the company aims to bring affordable 4G smartphones to the people at the price of feature phones by teaming up with device manufacturers.

Moreover, all the 4G smartphones launched by Airtel in partnership with Karbonn will also be available for purchase through Amazon India.

To buy the Karbonn A1 Indian, customers will have to make a down payment of ₹3299. However, customers will get a total cashback of ₹1500 after 36 months. They will get ₹500 after first 18 months, and, the remaining ₹1000 after next 18 months. But, to claim this cashback, they will have to make continuous recharge of ₹169/month for 36 months.

For ₹169, Airtel customers will free voice calls and 500 MB data per day for 28 days. However, if the customers don’t want to do the recharge of ₹169 every month, they also have the option to make recharges worth ₹3000 within the first 18 months to get a cash back of ₹500, and then another ₹3000 in the next 18 months to get the remaining ₹1000. Moreover, customers also don’t have to return their smartphones to Airtel or Karbonn after 36 months to claim their cashback.

Well, with a cashback of ₹1500, the effective price of Karbonn A1 Indian turns out to be ₹1799. The same scheme is applicable to Karbonn A41 Power. However, the amount of down payment is ₹3349 which results in an effective price of ₹1849 of the smartphone.
