The launch of the new Jio phone is just around the corner and it could be launched as early as September 10. It would be the first complete touchscreen smartphone from the company and would be priced at the lowest possible price from them. The pre-orders for the smartphone are expected to open up this week, for which the deliveries will start after the launch. The smartphone was already expected to launch on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi and would come with a customized version of Google’s Android operating system.
The operating system would have all the necessary Android apps but customized to the smartphone. The phone will be running on a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 chipset, which will be powered using a 2,500 mAh battery. It might look like the battery is not enough, but the processor used is not power-hungry and the optimized OS will make sure that the battery lasts the entire day. The phone will also come with a 5.5-inch screen and most probably a dual-camera setup with a 13MP primary sensor.
In the front, it will have a 2MP selfie camera. The price of the smartphone could be as low as Rs 5,000 but it is still not confirmed. Many other smartphone companies are also offering similar configurations within the Rs 6,000 mark, making the Jio phone the most affordable among them. More confirmed information about the same will be available on launch and we expect that Jio would bundle a lot of other things with the smartphone deal as well.
