Reliance Jio has finally launched their own branded phone. But wait, its not a smartphone, it’s a feature phone. You heard that right!

4GB internal storage, 512 MB RAM, 2MP rear camera, VGA front camera.
Reliance Jio hasn’t confirmed regarding the processor information yet as the device is yet to go on sale. But it is reported that Jio Phone will come with Snapdragon 205 processor. Because it is the only cheap processor out there with features such as 4G VoLTE connectivity. This processor should be sufficient to run daily tasks on the Jio Phone. And that should be more than enough.
The camera specifications of Jio Phone is below than average. But since its a feature phone, you shouldn’t expect more. The rear camera is of 2-megapixel and front camera is a VGA (0.3MP). The camera department is something lacks a lot when it comes to a feature phone.
The battery capacity on feature phones are pretty badass, means they offer long talk time and standby. Such is the case with Reliance Jio Phone. But you should know that it comes with 2000 mAh capacity. If you don’t know much about phones, then such amount of battery is considered huge for a feature phone.
Design and Display:
The Reliance Jio Phone sports a compact sturdy design, which looks comfortable to hold. Unlike smartphones, it is light in weight and sports a candy bar design. Sporting physical keyboard and a dedicated button for flash light and launching voice assistant. The display is 2.4 inches 320 x 240 pixels resolutions, which is a QVGA quality. It won’t be an immersive experience, but you could relive the feature phone era on this handset. When you used to watch videos on 240p resolution.
The storage capacity of the Reliance Jio Phone is 4GB, which is quite good when considering that it is a feature phone you are looking at. You don’t have to worry about storing at least contacts, messages, call history, and ringtones. Further, if you are looking to store images, videos or any other large size files, then, you can do that by expanding storage via microSD card. The Jio Phone supports storage expansion up to 128GB via microSD card.
Reliance is looking at disrupting the mobile industry with its Jio Phone. The feature phone era, which was fading away slowing will get a boost as many brands (even telecom providers) would introduce a feature phone compatible with 4G VoLTE network. The icing on the cake is that you would be getting the phone for free. Not exactly, you would have to pay Rs 1500, which would be 100% refundable after the device is used at least for three years. Reliance comes up with the craziest ideas when it comes providing services. And it is just a start.
The Reliance Jio is now available for booking and people who are interested in getting the phone can book them now and Jio would communicate on when their products would be released. However, to book a Reliance Jio 4G phone, one would need to have a Reliance Jio 4G sim.
