Jio Phone 5G: Release Date, Price, Online Booking, Specifications

Jio may launch Jio Phone 5G soon as its next affordable smartphone

Last year, Jio launched the Jio Phone Next. This was made in partnership with several brands, including Google, which contributed to the making of the Pragati OS. The Jio Phone Next aims to provide internet and smartphone access to the ones who cannot afford one. The successor of the Jio Phone Next has been surfacing on the web since last year. However, the launch seems imminent now. This is because of the 5G auctions that concluded recently. Jio turned out to be the biggest bidder in the auction. With 5G around the horizon, the Jio Phone 5G seems to launch very soon. Let us look at the release date, price and specifications of the Jio Phone 5G.

Jio Phone 5G Release Date

As of now, there is no official information regarding the release date of the Jio Phone 5G. However, we can expect the new budget 5G phone to launch in the next month or so. Jio seeks to make 5G services accessible to everyone by releasing a budget 5G phone. We can see the launch of this phone as soon as Jio launches 5G in India.

Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) will host its ts 45th Annual General Meet (AGM) on August 29, 2022. During Annual General Meet, Reliance Jio will reportedly announce Jio Phone 5G Smartphone along with 5G services.

Do You Need a Jio 5G SIM for Jio Phone 5G?

It looks like your existing Jio 4G SIM will work on the upcoming Jio Phone 5G. Jio has not announced that a new 5G SIM is required to avail of 5G services. Once we get official information regarding the 5G SIM Upgrade, we will update the article accordingly.

Jio Phone 5G Specifications

The specifications of the Jio Phone 5G have been surfacing the web for a long time now. The phone is rumoured to come with the Snapdragon 480 5G processor based on an 8nm fabrication process, which is an entry-level 5G chip from Qualcomm. On the GPU front, the phone will rock the Adreno 619 GPU. This seems to be a massive upgrade over the Snapdragon 215 on the Jio Phone Next. The phone will reportedly support five 5G bands— n3, n5, n28, n40, and n78.

As per a report from Android Central, the phone will come with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1600×720 (HD+) that refreshes at 60Hz. Obviously, the phone is entry-level, and an HD+ display is decent for an entry-level phone. As for the cameras, the phone will come with a 13MP (primary) + 2MP (macro) rear camera setup and an 8MP lens for selfies and video calls.

The Jio Phone 5G will have a 5000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. Lastly, the smartphone will come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Thankfully, users will be able to expand the storage using a microSD card.

Jio Phone 5G Booking Online

Talking about the Jio Phone 5G online booking, Reliance Jio has not revealed anything till now. However, we expect the company may launch a dedicated Jio Phone 5G registration page so that users can easily pre-book by sharing details like Name and Email ID. So, once Jio Phone 5G goes official, it could be available for booking through the My Jio app and the Official portal (Jio.com).

Final Words

The Jio Phone 5G is going to be a huge deal for Reliance Jio as well as the Indian consumers. But the question remains as to when the Reliance Jio Phone 5G will be available for purchase. We hope that the wait for this phone will not be too long.
