“The JioPhone 2 comes with QWERTY keypad and 2.4-inch QVGA display”
Earlier this year in July, at RIL’s 41st AGM, Mukesh Ambani introduced the successor to the JioPhone in the form of the JioPhone 2. Ever since the launch, the company has been offering the 4G-enabled feature phone via flash sales. In the first few sales, the handset went out of stock within a few minutes. Now, the company is holding yet another flash sale of the device today. If you were looking to buy the JioPhone 2, here’s everything you need to know about the sale and the phone.
Interested buyers can purchase the JioPhone 2 exclusively on Jio.com from 12 pm until the stock last. Also, users will have to choose between three recharge plans of Rs 49, Rs 99, or Rs 153, which are tailored for the feature phone subscribers to use the 4G-enabled affordable feature phone.
Talking about its features, the JioPhone 2 comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA display compared to the 2.4-inch TFT display on its predecessor JioPhone (first impression). It now features a QWERTY keypad that also has a dedicated button to summon Google assistant for voice commands. The handset packs 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. For photography, the phone sports a 2-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front camera. Connectivity options include a 4G VoLTE, VoWi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and FM radio. Moreover, the JioPhone 2 houses a 2,000mAh battery and runs KaiOS out of the box. Notably, WhatsApp recently released a version of its instant messaging app for the feature phone in the Jio AppStore.
As for the pricing, the JioPhone 2 costs Rs 2,999. It only comes in black colour and as per the company, after buying the handset, will be delivered to your address within five to seven business days. Interestingly, unlike the first-gen JioPhone, the JioPhone 2 doesn’t come with the refund benefits after three years of ownership.
