This listing reveals all the core specifications of this affordable smartphone - JioPhone Next price will be quite low. A listing on the console also hints at a launch very soon.

Sadly, the listing does not reveal anything about the battery capacity as well as the camera resolution. Rumours suggest that the JioPhone Next will have a 2500mAh battery and a 13MP rear camera will take upon the duty of taking photographs. For selfies and video calls, the JioPhone Next will feature an 8MP camera.

Back at the RIL AGM event, Jio clarified that this phone was developed in partnership with Google to bring certain smart features to consumers. There will be the Google Assistant on board along with the capability of on-screen translation, automatic read-aloud, special filers for the cameras, and more.

What will the JioPhone Next price be?

The JioPhone Next is likely to have a starting price of around 5,000, as some rumours have suggested. There is also the possibility of a model with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage that could cost 7,000. However, with Reliance Jio data pack and other offers from banks, the price is expected to be far lower than this. And those going for EMI may have to pay a very small amount.
