After launching JioPhone Next in the Indian market last year, the telecom company Reliance Jio is all set to bring an affordable 5G smartphone. The JioPhone 5G has already been confirmed by the company. However, the other details still need to be revealed officially. Meanwhile, leaks and rumours have already surfaced online which suggest that this JioPhone is going to be the cheapest 5G smartphone. Several reports suggest that JioPhone 5G price will be set at an unbelievable Rs. 12,000 approximately as per Live Mint.

However, some rumours are also suggesting that JioPhone 5G price may be available at a mind-boggling Rs. 2500! Well, considering that that is too low a figure for a 5G phone, it may well be referring to a possible downpayment for the JioPhone 5G. Buyers can probably take the JioPhone 5G home by paying just Rs. 2500 and the rest on installment. JioPhone 5G is also tipped to come with bundled data and unlimited calling benefits.

When will the JioPhone 5G be launched? The expected launch date is yet to be revealed officially, however, this affordable 5G smartphone could be introduced later this year in India. Know what this next-gen affordable JioPhone 5G is expected to bring.
