Jio is likely to introduce Rs 500 feature phone which is expected to launch on July 21, 2017. As a Conference of Reliance is going to take place on 21st July. It is another great comeback by Jio this year. So in this post, I will try to explain Jio rs 500 phone’s registration, booking, and other important details. This mobile will rebranded as LYF Handset, which is also a subsidiary of Reliance.
So first of all, I am not 100% sure that this phone will ever be going to launch or not. However, As posted by NDTV and Economic Times, this mobile’s manufacturing is being processed in China right now by Zhejiang Techain Electronics Technology Co., Shenzhen CHINO-E Communication Co, Crave and Megaphone Companies.
Let me tell you the good news first; We can confirm this mobile in the next Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Reliance Industries Limited. Mukesh Ambani may announce this great news to everyone so that everyone can afford this mobile as well as cheaper data and free calling. Now let’s check the specifications first.

or Spreadtrum chip
Not only this, This is a featured phone that means it does not have any modern OS (Operating system) and has limited functions. However, this phone may miss inbuilt GPS and NFC for connectivity. However, Wifi hotspot will be there for some reason. 4G VoLTE will also help in getting clearer voice during calls and excellent internet connectivity during downloading and browsing.
Because of limited features, you may not access Jio digital content such as Jio TV, Jio Music. This service is 100% complementary for all Jio user without paying additional charges but looks like you can’t use it on this mobile.
The Feature of Jio Rs. 500 Mobile
- 4G Support for Jio SIM
- Clear Voice Calls with VoLTE feature
- Free Voice and SMS (Expected)
- New and High Data Packs for Rs.90
According to a Report, This mobile has inbuild Hotspot which can create Wifi network in about 20 meters. However, Jiofi is another device of Reliance which provides the same functionality but with a higher price i.e., ₹2000. So how can this mobile be cheaper than Jiofi Device? That is why the price of this mobile is doubtful. I think the price may go up to ₹3000 for this mobile.
Additionally, this mobile has Music/Video player and wireless FM radio. You can put 2 SIM card at once on this mobile. First SIM slot is 4G enabled and second is 2G SIM Card slot. Jio 4G phone supports LTE Cat4 type Band with 150 Mbps download capacity. It has 850, 1800, 2300 MHz frequency band for 4G and 900, 1800 Mhz frequency band for 2G SIM slot. This mobile also has Internet Browser to surf the web on the go.
There is also some restriction on this mobile. You need to put Reliance Jio SIM in first SIM slot. Otherwise, the mobile won’t accept second SIM Card slot. As you read on the paper work of this mobile
India SIM card only. Jio SIM card is mandatory in One of the SIM slot. For every unique SIM card used, some information is collected via automatic SMS.
Jio Rs 500 Mobile Registration
There is no registration required to get this mobile. Because this is a cheaper mobile with a tag price of rs.500 only, Many other websites may pull your personal data by asking you to fill some forms.

Booking Procedure of Jio Rs. 500 Mobile?
The good news is that this mobile has started distributing among Reliance employees. So it’s there is 80 to 90% chance that this Feature phone will launch soon. However, as I have told you above, the price is still not believable. The price can go between ₹2000 to ₹3000.
