Book now

the first phase of JioPhone pre-bookings were opened last month and the company recorded a massive 6 million orders for the VoLTE enabled feature phone. Users need to register on the JioPhone website to be able to pre-book the device.

The JioPhone is effectively free, however, a refundable security deposit of Rs 1,500 will be charged for the same. Customers need to pay Rs 500 at the time of pre-booking the JioPhone and Rs 1,000 at the time of delivery. 

 As per JioPhone’s terms and conditions, users will need perform a minimum mandatory recharge of Rs 4,500 over a period of three years to be able to use the device uninterrupted and to get back the refundable security deposit after a lock-in period of 36 months. Reliance Jio is said to be subsidising approximately 40 percent of the cost of the JioPhone, whic is essentially worth Rs 2,500.  

 The JioPhone runs on an operating system known as Kai OS. It will come in two variants as far as processors are concerned. If you buy a JioPhone, you will either get a unit with a Spreadtrum 9820A processor or a Qualcomm 205 chipset with a 1.2GHz Dual Core CPU. The JioPhone sports a 2.4-inch display. That is approximately 2 full-sized SD cards put together. It is a QVGA display with a 320p x 240p resolution. Here, it is important to understand that while the native video player on the JioPhone supports 720p video playback thanks to the SoCs powering the device, users will not experience the same while watching videos on the JioPhone.
