Here is the free and new Jio mobile for everyone in India. This Jio mobile was announced by Reliance India Pvt. Ltd. Chairperson Mr. Mukesh Ambani on 21st of July 2017. It is worth mentioning that the pre-booking of this phone was started in August 2017. But now, this phone is available and you can order easily by following the simple steps mentioned below. It is the kind of mobile that everyone can own for absolutely free of cost. However, there are some terms associated with this mobile.
Jio mobile is also named as “India ka Smartphone” because it’s one of the affordable devices available in the market. This mobile is a feature mobile, not a smartphone but it has some exciting features that will definitely leave prints on your heart. This mobile is almost similar to Jio 500 mobile, as I assumed it should be. Jio phone is a great and incredible feature phone with much multimedia functionality. For example, this mobile can connect to your Television, it has My jio apps, Jio TV, Jio Cinema and other apps. It also has built-in Music as well as video player.
I think, 125 million of Jio subscribers were waiting for this phone to launch that’s why it was sold out in no seconds in its first sale. This mobile had already created hype amount Indian consumers from last six months. Finally, we can hold this mobile in our hand. Let’s talk about its launch date, price as well as its features.
