The pre booking for Reliance Jio feature phone started today at 5:30 pm. Mukesh Ambani’s ambitious phone will be available free of cost. All you have to do is deposit Rs 1500 which will be refunded after 3 years as told by Ambani at this year’s Reliance AGM. Before the Jio phone pre bookings started, its features were made available on the website. Jio which was called ‘India ka smartphone’ by RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani, can be booked online via MyJio app or Jio’s website as well as offline by walking into Jio retail stores or multi-branded outlets. You have to pay only Rs 500 while booking the phone and the rest Rs 1000 will be paid after the phone is delivered. As soon as the booking started, the Jio website crashed which probably because of the traffic load.

Here is a look at the Reliance Jio feature phone specifications:

1. Design: Just like some other features phones in the market, Reliance Jio too gets a candy-bar design with an Alphanumeric keypad and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The feature phone will be available in black colour option.
