JioBook listed on Amazon with features, specs

A dedicated microsite for the upcoming product has been set up on Amazon India. In a series of teaser images, some features of the laptop have been confirmed. The first notable change is the lighter body, as the successor will weigh 990g as compared to the 1.2kg weight of last year’s model.

While the brand has not elaborated on any of the specs, it has confirmed that the laptop will feature 4G connectivity similar to its predecessor. The new JioBook will be powered by JioOS (based on Android) and an octa-core processor. The company is promising an all-day battery life too.

JioBook price (expected)

The brand launched its first-generation JioBook at a price tag of Rs 15,799 through Reliance Digital stores. The laptop featured an 11.6-inch display, a webcam, two USB ports and a headphone jack. It was powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665 SoC. The new generation product could come under Rs 20,000 and will be available through more retail partners such as Amazon.

This will be Jio’s second product launch in the country in the month of July. The company earlier unveiled its Jio Bharat 4G feature phone which is priced at Rs 999. As a 4G SIM is required on JioBook too, it could come with similarly affordable data plans to make the laptop more accessible for price-conscious consumers.
