JioPhone 5G May Launch This Month: Know Launch Date, Price, Specifications & Other Expected Details

The JioPhone 5G is expected to be launched by the end of August. Ambani admitted at Reliance’s latest shareholder meeting that it would be “super cost-effective”. Here are the details:

SUMMARY
  • Reliance unveiled its Jio Air Fiber 5G hotspot device last year
  • Jio is also expected to launch its first 5G smartphone in India
  • Reliance has promised the full 5G services rollout in the country by the end of 2024

Reliance will hold its 46th Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on August 28 at 2 PM in India, according to a company notification to the stock exchange and confirmed by ET. Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani may use the platform to announce important updates including topics such as Jio’s financial services, upcoming JioPhone 5G plans, and consumer-oriented Jio 5G plans. He has already confirmed the existence of the JioPhone 5G, but the exact details are yet to be revealed. Here’s what you can expect:

The expected price of JioPhone 5G in India
At Reliance’s latest shareholder meeting, Ambani confirmed that the JioPhone 5G will be super affordable. The exact price range is yet to be revealed, but going by previous leaks, the price may be between Rs 8,000 and Rs 10,000. If this is true, it will be the most affordable 5G mobile phone in India. The phone may be priced under Rs 15,000, a segment where 5G options are scarce at the moment. We will have more clarity on this in the coming weeks.

JioPhone 5G: Expected Specifications
The device has already been spotted on the Geekbench website with the model number Jio LS1654QB5. The listing suggests that the new JioPhone might come with a base variant of 4GB of RAM. Ambani has already confirmed the company’s partnership with Qualcomm, so we can expect the JioPhone 5G to use a Snapdragon chipset under the hood.

The name of the chipset has not been officially revealed yet, but the Geekbench listing suggests that the upcoming JioPhone 5G could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+ processor. As the release of the Android 14 operating system approaches, this device will be equipped with the Android 13 operating system. According to earlier leaks, the JioPhone 5G could feature a 6.5-inch 90Hz HD+ LCD display, a 5,000mAh battery, and a 13MP dual rear camera. On the front, you can have an 8-megapixel sensor for selfies. The company is said to support at least 18W charging.

Reliance plans to confirm the details by the end of August, so we will have to wait a little longer to know the exact specifications of the smartphone.

The images revealed that the smartphone might come with a waterdrop notch display and pronounced bezels.

 

Other announcements at the Reliance AGM event: Jio AirFiber 2023

At last year’s shareholders meeting, Jio unveiled a 5G hotspot device called Air Fiber 5G. However, the actual device was not announced at the event. Ambani-led Jio is speculated to announce the price and availability of Jio AirFiber in India. This device is designed to provide high-speed 5G hotspots for homes and offices.

Reliance is yet to launch a dedicated 5G plans in India due to heightened expectations. Industry speculation suggests that these plans may mirror the pricing of existing 4G plans while offering users higher speeds and more stability. Further, more details about the Jio Air Fiber service may be provided in the future. The 2023 AGM could also mark the listing date of Geo Financial Services, which is set to take center stage under Mr. Ambani’s vision to become India’s premier non-banking financial institution.
