The most recent launch by the country’s tech giant, Jio Phone Next, which is set to release in Diwali has been creating quite a stir in the market.
This low-budget high-performance smartphone has been developing much fervor in the market. Stemming out as a Reliance Jio and Google brainchild, this smartphone will be going on sale this Diwali after the prior launch in September, during Ganesh Chaturthi was postponed. Let’s have a look at the specifications and features.
The price for this smartphone is set at Rs 6,499 and will be available on down payment and EMI plans. The entry price for the same is set at Rs 1,999 post which the remaining amount can be paid through EMIs spanning a period of 18 to 24 months.

What’s inside the box?
Along with the Jio Phone Next, you will also receive a 5W charging adapter along with a micro USB charging cable and a removable battery pack. The warranty card and user guide come in handy too.
This phone is one of the most durable smartphones to have been released and packs in an element of nostalgia in the phone. Reminding you of the first smartphones that came out, this phone imbibes all elements of feature phones and offers a product which satisfies someone who isn’t extremely well-versed with smartphones but needs them for day-to-day activities. However, the smartphone doesn’t come with a lot of pre-installed applications or bloatware and those downloaded are primarily the ones offered by Jio and Google. The mobile is ideal for anyone who wants to switch from a normal feature phone to his first smartphone
For the price at which the mobile is offered, one is bound to find this a steal-deal. What do you think of the phone?
