Reliance Jio has brought a new JioFi 4G device. The new device is priced at Rs 1,999 compared to Rs 999 price tag of the older device. However, with the new device you will get benefits of over Rs 3,500.
The new JioFi shares many of its features with its older sibling but it comes with a sandstone like finish (atleast that what the pictures suggest).
Like the Rs 999 JioFi, the new one can be used for WiFi connectivity for up to 10 devices. Also they both offer USB teethering for one device.
Both the devices have IEEE 802.11b/g/n 2.4G standard. There are micro USB port, micro SD card slot as well as a slot for a nano SIM in both. The new JioFi has a bigger battery though – a 2600 mAh unit compared to 2300 mAh battery of the older unit. The new JioFi is taller, wider but slimmer than the older one – the new device measures 96.6 X 65.2 X 15 mm compared to 85 mm X 55 mm X 16 mm of older JioFi.
In the new JioFi, the power button is located in the right hand side and it has just three indicators for battery, signal and WiFi status. The Jio logo is there in the front. In the older device, there were five indicators in the front along with a power button.
