JioPhone Next now available on Reliance Digital with no pre-registration

JioPhone Next is now available for purchase through the Reliance Digital website for the first time since the launch of the affordable smartphone earlier this month. It was earlier available to customers through JioMart, after registering to buy the handset. The JioPhone Next packs a Snapdragon 215 SoC, a 5.45-inch screen, and a 13-megapixel rear camera. Buyers will now be able to get the JioPhone Next at the launch price.

JioPhone Next specs

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 SoC, JioPhone Next offers dual-SIM 4G connectivity. The smartphone flaunts a 5.45-inch HD+ (720×1,440 pixels) display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The JioPhone Next is equipped with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 512GB via microSD.

The smartphone runs on Jio’s Pragati OS, which is based on Google’s Android 11 (Go Edition) and packs a 3,500mAh battery that charges over a micro-USB port. The JioPhone packs a 13-megapixel rear camera, as well as an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie camera. The company has partnered with Google to make the smartphone, and offers features like regional language support, a screen reader, web page translation, quick file transfer, and exclusive camera filters on affordable smartphones. 

JioPhone Next price in India, availability

On Reliance Digital, the JioPhone Next is currently priced at Rs. 6,499. The smartphone is also available with EMI plans starting as low as Rs. 305.93 per month, which includes data benefits. However, customers should note that these will make the smartphone more expensive than buying a handset in advance and buying a separate data plan.

Meanwhile, Reliance Digital is also offering discounts on JioPhone Next purchases on Yes Bank credit cards (10% off), American Express credit cards (7.5% off), and ICICI Bank debit and credit cards (5% off).
