Jio Phone Next specifications have finally surfaced online nearly two months after the affordable 4G phone was announced. To recall, the Jio Phone Next was unveiled at the Reliance AGM 2021 in June. At the time, the company only revealed the design of the phone and teased a few features, leaving the hardware a complete mystery. Now, XDA Developer’s Mishaal Rahman has revealed key Jio Phone Next specs ahead of the phone’s sale in India from September 10th. Let’s find out what the affordable 4G smartphone from Reliance and Google will bring to the table.
Jio Phone Next specifications revealed ahead of sale in India
Rahman starts off his tweet by sharing the JioPhone Next boot screen, which shows “Created with Google”. The smartphone will come with Google Duo Go pre-installed, but it apparently isn’t a special Android Go-optimised version of Duo. Also, a newer version of Google Camera Go comes pre-installed with Snapchat integration.
Moving on to the hardware and software side of things, the Jio Phone Next is powered by the Qualcomm 215. This entry-level 1.3GHz processor powers phones like the Nokia 1.4 currently. The display offers a 1440×720 resolution based on the boot animation, Rahman notes. The Jio Phone Next runs on Android 11 (Go Edition) out of the box. RAM and storage details haven’t been shared but we assume the Jio Phone Next will not offer more than 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Other confirmed Jio Phone Next features include voice assistant, language translation, smart camera with AR filters, and more.
Jio Phone Next sale date in India is September 10th, the company revealed during the unveiling at Reliance AGM 2021. The Jio Phone Next price in India is yet to be revealed, but we expect Jio to disrupt the market the way it did with the Jio Phone feature phone. We expect to learn more about the Jio Phone Next in the coming weeks leading up to the sale.
