The company at that time revealed that the booking of the phone would start on August 15, 2018. Jio has now announced that the phone will go on sale today i.e. July 16, 2018. However, this time the company has opted for a flash sale model for its feature phone, which will begin at 12:00 PM. Interested users can log on to the company’s official website to buy the JioPhone 2. The feature phone is priced at Rs 2,999.
Recollecting some key specs, the JioPhone 2 comes loaded with a physical QWERTY keypad, against the T9 keypad used in first generation JioPhone. The device runs on KAI OS, which is present in JioPhone and there is a voice assistant as well through which users can make calls, browse the web, listen to music and more. As usual, the phone is equipped with a host of Jio apps and it also supports Facebook, WhatsApp and YouTube.
