Reliance Jio’s Rs 500 4G phone leak shows its design and reveals full specs
After changing space telecommunications with gifts and unlimited calling service, Jio is now ready to enter the telephony market.
A leaked report last week revealed that Jio is likely to launch a dedicated telephone Rs 500 at its annual general meeting (AGM) on July 21, but the company has not yet confirmed anything about it.
But before its release, Jio’s 4G phone photos were revealed. The images show the design details and the key information.
Two new reports – both TechPP and TelecomTalk – reveal almost every detail about the new phone with Jio.
And the two quotes look pretty similar. Both reports indicate that the new Jio feature will be released under the LYF brand.
The company has already launched several smartphones of the LYF brand, and is said to launch a phone with a feature that will be priced at 500 Rs.
The following Jio phone feature should be equipped with a 2.4-inch display, while the camera employs a dual language down keyboard.
In addition, the live images show that the device is equipped with a dedicated flashlight and next to which are the menu buttons and the back and call buttons. Everything is on the front of the unit.
On the back, the phone has a 2 megapixel camera is similar to the Nokia 3310 (2017).
The leak shows that Jio’s 4G VoLTE handset will come with 512MB of RAM along with 4GB of internal storage, which can be extendable up to 128GB via a microSD card.
There are no details about the processor inside the device. However, since it supports 4G, it is likely that it could use a Qualcomm processor input.
For example, this could be the Snapdragon 205 SoC, a Qualcomm processor made specifically for very cheap 4G mobile VoIP.
The phone features VoLTE 4G functionality will support SIM only Jio dependency, which clearly shows that this handset is designed to increase the subscriber base of Jio.
The company wants people to buy your phone, then use the Jio network. However, TelecomTalk also reports that the phone has features can be equipped with two SIM card slots. One of these slots accept a generic 2G SIM, while the other is for a 4G SIM card provided by Jio.
The main feature of the phone would be the device’s ability to run some applications such as Jio Jio TV, Jio Cine and others.
It is said that the device comes with a voice assistant. Live images indicate that Jio phone function can work on the KAI operating system, which is apparently a forked version of Firefox OS.
The phone has been seen with a dedicated application store called KAIOS plus, which probably indicates that the device can support applications like Facebook and WhatsApp.
Despite all that is revealed (probably) July 21 at present there are a number of reports that claim that the 4G phone will have Jio priced at Rs 500 or somewhere around it.
However, the specs and features we see also shows a phone that could be a bit more expensive.
There is no doubt that Jio subsidize the phone because its actual manufacturing cost can be around 1,500 Rs. In this context, we believe that the 4G Jio phone could have a price between Rs 500 and 1,000 Rs.
