At its 44th Annual General Meeting (AGM) in June, Indian telecom giant Reliance Jio announced an ultra-affordable 4G smartphone called JioPhone Next. While the phone was supposed to go on sale on September 10th, Jio was forced to postpone the release due to the global chip shortage. At the time, the company said it would release the phone around Diwali. Now ahead of the official release, Jio has revealed the pricing details for the JioPhone Next.
The JioPhone Next will be available at an entry price of ₹1,999, with the rest of the sum to be paid via installments over 18 or 24 months. Alternatively, you can purchase it upfront without financing for ₹6,499. Jio says the phone will be “available from Diwali,” meaning it will hit the shelves next week.
