Reliance JioPhone 2 Specifications
The first thing that buyers will get to notice about the new JioPhone 2 is its uncanny resemblance with the BlackBerry phones owing to their QWERTY keypad design. The screen on this device is a 2.4-inch sized display with QVGA resolution. Speaking of performance, the processor on the phone is the Spreadtrum 9820 dual-core SoC which clocks a frequency of 1.2 GHz. The RAM on this device is 512MB, and it comes with 4GB of onboard storage. However, there is the option of sliding in a microSD card, in case you feel the need.

As for the software, the new JioPhone comes with KaiOS like its predecessor, and it will support popular apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, and YouTube. The camera setup on the rear is a 2MP sensor, and there is a VGA camera on the front. The device comes with a 2,000mAh battery and claims a battery life of 14 hours. Connectivity options on the phone include Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth, FM radio, VoLTE, and VoWiFi. The device also allows a max download speed of 150 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50 Mbps thanks to the LTE Cat 4 support. The phone will only debut in a single standard black colour, and it will bear a price tag of Rs 2,999.

Monsoon Hungama Offer for JioPhone
Interested buyers will be eligible to buy the original JioPhone at the effective price of Rs 501 under the Monsoon Hungama Offer. To reap the benefits of this plan, buyers will only have to exchange their old feature phone along with its charger to the retailer. Following the exchange of the old phone, which should be working in order to be eligible for the exchange, the purchaser will then have to pay Rs 501 security deposit. The security deposit, however, will be refundable to the user after the completion of three years.

Additionally, buyers will get a new Jio SIM with the device to which they can decide to port their old number using mobile portability. Apart from this, the new users of JioPhone will also have to shell out Rs 594 in addition to the security deposit for a six-monthly recharge. This plan by Jio will get them calling and data benefits on JioPhone for six months straight.
