The entire world is excited about the next generation Apple iPhones, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and second generation Google Pixels. Along with that, the Indian consumers are eagerly awaiting for a feature phone. Yes, and the feature phone is from Reliance Jio.
The Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio is slated to launch two variants of Jio 4G feature phone later this month. Recently, we’ve leaked an image of the retail box, which allegedly revealed the specifications of the device. Another report leaked the pictures of the device, which gave a clear idea of how the device would look like.
While the launch date is unknown at the moment, Jio is said to pack the device at Rs. 1,500, and it will come with support for 4G VoLTE. The complete specifications of the device are leaked as well. Here are the five standout rumoured specifications of Reliance Jio 4G Feature Phone.
Ever since the news about Jio 4G Feature Phone broke out, we have been receiving a lot of comments from our readers about the Wi-Fi Hotspot feature. However, with our last report, we’ve confirmed that the device will come with Wi-Fi hotspot feature for internet sharing. That said, the device will sell in a big number, because several users are looking to make this device a secondary phone for the hotspot feature.
512MB of RAM, 4GB of Storage
Did you ever imagine a feature phone to arrive with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of massive storage? All these days, vendors are packing a smaller amount of storage with the feature phones. For example, the Nokia 3310 (2017) comes with just 16MB of storage. But the Jio 4G Feature Phone will come with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, which is expandable with a microSD card.
An In-Built Voice Assistant
Along with our report, another report has appeared online, which has a clear video demonstrating a voice assistant. It works same as other digital assistants available in the market right now and performs basic operations such as setting the alarm, call a number, etc.
A 2.4-inch QVGA Display and a 2MP Rear Camera With Flash
The Reliance Jio 4G Feature Phone will come with a 2.4-inch QVGA display, as per the retail box. And there will be a 2MP rear camera along with a flashlight. That said, the flash can also be used as a torch.
Affordable Price Tag
The major reason about the entire craze about Reliance Jio 4G Feature Phone is the price tag. An HSBC report said that it could be priced as low as Rs. 500 to gain more subscribers. And some other reports claim that it would cost Rs. 1,500. The pricing is still a mystery, but if Jio manages to price the product below Rs. 1,500, it will stir the Indian feature phone market.
