Reliance Jio will start the pre-bookings of the highly awaited JioPhone at 5:30 PM today. The pre booking of the Reliance device can be done at the retail stores, MyJio app as well as the company website. It should be noted that users will have to pay Rs 500 initially. This is basically a booking amount that Reliance wants you to pay in order to confirm your booking. Since the JioPhone is priced at Rs 1500, the rest of the amount can be paid later. The company will take the remaining balance of Rs 1000 at the time of delivery. The 4G feature mobile will start selling around the first week of next month.
Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries Limited has claimed a target of more than a hundred million Jio 4G feature phones to be delivered in its first year. The reason why JioPhone is different than other features phones is that it has plenty of features which are unavailable in the usual devices. Also, the cost of the Jio mobile is very less. In fact, according to the company, the JioPhone is priced effectively at Rs 0. This is because users will get back the money by the end of three years, making the Rs 1500 only a security deposit. Mukesh Ambani had said that the move was just to avoid ‘potential misuse’.
When is the Reliance JioPhone sale? When can you pre-book? Today (August 24), you will be able to pre-book the mobile starting from 5:30 PM.
