Jio Phone 2 price in India, booking details, specifications
The Jio Phone 2 price in India is Rs. 2,999, which users will have to pay while placing the pre-order. The company hasn’t revealed any details on the part of its Jio Phone 2 shipments. We can safely speculate some delay in the delivery as there is likely to be a huge demand for the affordable feature phone that sports a QWERTY keyboard and features such as Google Assistant integration and WhatsApp support.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Jio Phone 2 runs KaiOS and features a 2.4-inch QVGA display. Under the hood, there is 512MB of RAM and 4GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). The phone has a 2-megapixel rear and a VGA front camera. Also, it supports connectivity options such as 4G VoLTE, VoWi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and FM radio. There is a dedicated button for voice commands that help you activate Google Assistant while on the go. Besides, the phone packs a 2000mAh battery.
Jio GigaFiber registrations
In addition to Jio Phone 2 bookings, the Mukesh Ambani-led company will take registrations from Jio GigaFiber from August 15. Customers will need to use the MyJio app or visit the Jio.com to register for the broadband service. The rollout of the service will be on basis of the number of registrations. In simpler terms, the company will prioritize the rollout of the Jio GigaFiber service to those localities from where it receives the major amount of registrations.However, it is clear that subscribers will need to pay a refundable amount of Rs. 4,500 to get the connection along with the router for the service.
Apart from giving the broadband service for computing devices and smartphones, Reliance Jio will offer a GigaTV set-top box to provide over 600 TV channels as well as a large number of movies and songs to HDTVs. The Mumbai-based company is also in plans to bring a bunch of smart devices that will work on the Jio GigaFiber network to enable home automation in the country.
