The Jio Phone 5G just received the Bureau of Indian Standards certification. This comes just days after the device was first spotted on Geekbench. The approvals are being sought by the company for the Jio Phone 5G. This suggests that the launch may be imminent. However, Reliance Jio believes that the Jio Phone 5G will not be released until the next Reliance Annual General Meeting.
Mukesh Ambani from RIL Industries has already confirmed the existence and function of the Jio Phone. He announced in August that the telecom giant had partnered with Google to launch a Jio phone that is 5G compatible. The launch will be announced in the near future. Some information about the 5G smartphone has been leaked. Here’s everything you need to learn.
At this time, it is not known what the official name will be. Reliance Jio is rumoured to be calling it Jio Phone 5G. Geekbench lists the device as model Jio LS1654QB5. This listing suggests that the budget smartphone could have 4GB of RAM.
Ambani already confirmed the company’s partnership to Qualcomm. You can expect the Jio Phone 5G with a Snapdragon Chip. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 480+ SoC. According to the listing, it could come with Android 12 OS. Google has already launched Android 13. This could disappoint many.
The Jio Phone 5G’s specifications include a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD 90Hz display, a 5,000mAh lithium battery and a 13MP dual rear camera setup. A front-facing 8MP sensor is possible for selfies. According to reports, the company will offer support for charging up to 18W.
A few months ago, Jio Phone, a telecom company, stated that Jio Phone is being developed. This suggested that the 5G smartphone would not be arriving anytime soon. It is expected that it will arrive in the coming year. This will likely be at Reliance’s next AGM.
Ambani stated earlier this year that Jio Phones will be “Ultra-affordable.” Though the exact price range is not yet known, the leaks suggest that it may be anywhere from Rs 8,000 to around Rs 10,000. It is possible that the handset will be priced in the Rs 15,000 to Rs 15,000 range, as 5G options are limited.
