Reliance Jio reportedly is planning to launch another version of Jio phone in India which is speculated to be a lighter version of the original Jio Phone.
The phone is on developing stage so nothing speculated to be taken very seriously and every leaked information should be taken by a pinch of salt.
The codename given to the phone is Jio Phone 5. As the report made by 91Mobiles suggests, Jio phone 5 is not a Smartphone, but a feature phone with some decent preloaded features to make it stand- out.
Jio Phone 5 will have in-built access to WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube, and Google with support for 4G networks. Reportedly, the phone going to be manufactured locally to promote “Make In India” campaign.
It is said that the price of the phone will be less than the original Jio Phone and will sport a tiny display and alphanumeric keypad. The offers and data pack details are not revealed yet but it is safe to expect that as Jio Phone 5 is said to be a feature phone, the tariff plans must be very affordable.
Mukesh Ambani at the 43rd AGM of Reliance Industries revealed that Jio and Google will be co-developing an entry level smartphone with 5G support, but this seems to be a different project in the pipeline before the deal with Google happened.
