To recap, the brand introduced its first JioPhone (first impressions) at the 40th AGM event held last year. Along with being one of the most affordable 4G and VoLTE-enabled feature phones, the handset was also received well by Indian audience owing to Jio’s tariff plans and the attractive launch offers that Jio introduced. Those who wished to purchase the phone had to shell out a security deposit of Rs 1,500, which was refundable after a period of three years upon returning the device, making it effectively free. Now, at its 41st AGM event, Reliance announced Monsoon Hungama offer, wherein users can upgrade to JioPhone by exchanging any feature phone and paying an extra Rs 501.

The phone runs on KaiOS and comes with support for the brand’s virtual assistant. The phone comes with 512MB of RAM and 4Gb of storage, which can be further expanded with a microSD card. In the camera department, the JioPhone 2 comes with a 2-megapixel rear camera and 0.3-megapixel selfie shooter. For power requirements, the handset gets a 2,000mAh battery.
