The revolutionary Jio Phone has achieved pre-booking orders of a million units, according to Reliance Jio’s website. This marks the end of Round 1 of sales. You cannot make any more pre-bookings at the moment, but you can register your interest. The website just says, “We shall inform when the pre-booking resumes”.
However, if you had managed to pre-book a Jio Phone on 25 August, then check the status of your pre-booking by dialing 1800-890-8900 and then sharing the registered mobile number which you had used for pre-booking the Jio Phone. Updates are also available on the MyJio app by going to the ‘My Vouchers’ tab.
Round two of the pre-bookings are in the process and the devices will be delivered on a first come first serve basis in September. The bookings can also be made via Reliance Jio website, MyJio app, and Reliance Digital Stores.
Those wishing for alerts on the latest information can sign up for it at the Reliance Jio website.
The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 205, it has a dual-core CPU which is clocked at 1.1 GHz. The camera has a 3 MP sensor, with videos up to 480p at 30 fps. The screen size is 2.4-inches, it has Linux operating system and has the support of 22 major languages.
Even though the phone is free, it has a security deposit of Rs 1,500, which can be reclaimed after a period of three years. But that shouldn’t deter you.
