Reliance has finally unveiled its newest smartphone, the JioPhone Next after a series of delays and rumours. The JioPhone Next claims to deliver exceptional performance and user experience while still being budget-friendly.
Jio teased the gadget earlier this week, and now we have more information on the phone’s hardware and specifications. The phone was supposed to be released around Ganesh Chaturthi in September, but a chip shortage caused the gadget to be postponed, and it is now set to be released during Diwali this year.
For the display, we’re looking at a 5.45-inch HD+ panel with a resolution of 720×1440 pixels, which matches the leaks from a few months ago. For enhanced protection, the panel is an LCD with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Things become a bit more intriguing behind the hood. Qualcomm’s QM-215 quad-core CPU, which can run at 1.5GHz, is combined with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, with support for up to 512GB of expansion. A 13-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel selfie camera are included in the camera package. HDR enhancement, portrait mode, and night mode are among the software options available for the back camera.
The phone runs on PragatiOS, which is a toned-down version of Android intended specifically for low-end hardware devices. With on-device translation functions and material reading aloud, the OS also improves support for Indian languages. A 3,500mAh battery powers the smartphone.
The JioPhone Next will cost Rs. 6,499 when it launches. If you don’t want to spend that much in one go, you may opt for an EMI-based plan, in which you pay Rs 1,999 to obtain the phone and then pay the rest in instalments based on your usage.
It’s worth noting, though, that these plans will result in you paying more than the real price of $6,499.
Chairman and MD of RIL, Mukesh Ambai stated that he was thrilled that Google and Jio teams had succeeded in bringing this breakthrough product to Indian customers in time for the festival season despite the present global supply chain issues created by the Covid epidemic. He had always believed in the capacity of the Digital Revolution to enhance, enable, and empower the lives of India’s 1.35 billion people. The company had done it before with connections. Now it was reactivating it with a smartphone gadget.
In a statement, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet indicated that the JioPhone Next was a cheap smartphone made for India, inspired by the notion that everyone in India should benefit from the opportunities created by the internet. Their teams had to collaborate to tackle challenging technical and design issues in order to construct it, and he was thrilled to see how millions of people will utilise these devices to improve their lives and communities.
