According to a report, the company is working on JioPhone 5G. It is expected for the launch of the JioPhone 5G phone in India in near future.
A report from Android Central has claimed that Jio has finished planning the 5G coverage implementation, which it will be done in phases, starting with 13 cities in the first phase.

Jio will be aiming to take on Realme and Redmi, which sell their cheapest 5G phones in the vicinity of Rs 13,000.
This low price also means low-end specifications, but the report said Jio is going for a little better hardware on the JioPhone 5G. For instance, the JioPhone 5G may come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 processor, which although is the cheapest 5G chipset from Qualcomm but powerful enough for users who go for budget and mid-range phones. The phone will reportedly support N3, N5, N28, N40, and N78 bands, which means it will support 5G networks across India.
The OS is reported to be a fully-fledged Android 11 and Jio will plug its own “digital suite”. The battery of the JioPhone 5G will be 5,000 mAh with 18W charging support through a USB-C port, and the phone will feature a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The JioPhone 5G will have a 6.5” LCD with HD+ resolution. The Qualcomm chip will have 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage to work with and there will be a dedicated microSD slot. It’s reportedly coming with a 13MP main rear camera (alongside a 2MP auxiliary snapper and an 8MP selfie shooter.
Dual rear camera setup can be found in Jio’s first 5G phone, in which the primary lens will be 13 megapixels and the second lens will be 2 megapixels. On the front, there will be an 8-megapixel selfie camera. With this, support for fast charging of 18W will be available. A side-mounted fingerprint sensor will be available on the phone. 5000mAh battery can be found in Jio Phone 5G.
This phone of Jio can get 4G RAM and 32 GB storage. It is being said that a 6.5-inch LCD HD + display will be available in Jio Phone 5G. All Jio apps will be pre-installed with the phone. Android 11 will be available with the phone.
Regarding the launch timeline of the JioPhone 5G, there is a lot of uncertainty right now. That is because 5G itself is months, if not years, away from its full-scale commercial rollout. Jio’s 5G phone has reportedly entered the prototyping phase but its launch will depend on whether Jio is ready to begin the first wave implementation of 5G networks in India this year. The report said Reliance Jio may announce the 5G plans and the 5G phone at this year’s annual shareholder meeting that is slated for June.
