The company aims to make India 2G mukt, and thus, Jio is launching feature phones that support 4G. In 2023, Jio announced the JioBharat platform, under which the company said that it would partner with OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and launch feature phones with 4G capabilities around the Rs 1000 price point. Jio also launched the JioBharat B1 which is currently listed on Amazon India for Rs 1,299 only.




Now, Jio is reportedly going to launch another feature phone under the JioBharat platform, according to a report by 91Mobiles. Although the company has not officially confirmed the existence of the new phone, it has been spotted on a certification site. The new device is likely the JioBharat B2.
