Reliance Jio has been able to add a behemoth number of subscribers to its base thanks to the JioPhone revolution. Now the Mukesh Ambani led telecom operator seems to be in the mood of topping it off with the launch of JioPhone Next. The phone, which was mentioned in the previous AGM of Reliance Jio, is also a strategic bet since it will aim to bring the 2G feature phone users onboard the 4G LTE network with the entry of a cheap hybrid Android device. However, until now, the JioPhone Next was clad in mystery. There have been talks about the software that the device will pack, but mostly, the hardware information of the JioPhone Next has remained elusive. But, now it seems that we have some new info about the JioPhone Next which is slated to be launched on September 10.
New Information About the JioPhone Next
XDA Developer’s Mishaal Rahman has shared a tweet with the boot screen of the JioPhone Next device and revealed some technical information about the same. The boot screen of JioPhone Next comes with a tag of “created with Google”, hinting towards the partnership with the tech giant. Also, as per Rahman, the phone comes with Google Duo out of the box, but it is not the usual run of the mill Android-Go enabled Google Duo. The Camera Go on the device is also enabled with a Snapchat integration.
JioPhone Next Hardware Specifications
When it comes to hardware, being in the hybrid range and successor of the JioPhone, we cannot practically expect the device to pack exceptionally powerful hardware. Some of the features touted by Reliance Jio include voice assistant, language translation, smart camera with AR filters, and more. Not only this, but inside the device, we find a Qualcomm 215 chipset which is used to power mostly entry-level devices. The software on the JioPhone Next is the Android 11 Go edition. Based on the boot screen, the resolution on the device has been expected to be 1440×720. Although the storage and memory information is not yet available but based on the fact that the device is mostly a budget phone, then practically the JioPhone Next will pack 2GB RAM and not more than 32GB storage.
