The tie-up with Flipkart is another take by Vodafone to take on Reliance Jio and retain the customer base. Not just Vodafone, other incumbent operators are also forging partnerships with handset makers so as to make smartphones affordable and within reach of a large section of society.

India’s leading telecommunication operator Bharti Airtel is also offering similar deals in partnership with smartphone manufacturers. However, the deals are not yet available through e-commerce platform.
