JioBook specifications (expected)

The Reliance JioBook will target the affordable computing segment and will hence run on a similar grade of hardware. The JioBook was expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 (SM6125); however, with quicker 5G services rolling out soon from Jio itself, Reliance could trade up for a better and newer processor. The device could run a modified version of the Android operating system and could be named JioOS.

The resolution on display is expected to be 1366×768, and the device could get 2GB LPDDR4X RAM and 32GB eMMC storage. A higher spec variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC 5.1 storage can also be on the cards. The JioBook could also have a mini HDMI connector for video output, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a three-axis accelerometer, and a Qualcomm audio chip. 

More details on the hardware and price can be expected to be unveiled soon when Reliance decides to make the product public.
