JioPhone booking will finally open on 24th August both Online and Offline, but certain offline retailers have already started taking pre-orders for the phone. The retailers in the Delhi NCR region are taking the pre orders, and there is a very simple process to book one for yourself, only if you have an offline retailer near you taking the pre orders.
Booking the JioPhone
To book a JioPhone, you need to submit a copy of your Aadhar card to the retailer. You will only get one JioPhone per Aadhar number, so booking on multiple retailers using the same Aadhar card is a waste. After submitting the Aadhar card, your Aadhar number will be sent to the central server which then will assign you a token number which you will be needed while picking up the number.
The price of the phone is Rs. 1,500 and you don’t need to have the sum ready while booking the smartphone. You just have to book the phone by providing just the Aadhar card number, and your JioPhone will get booked. You have to pay the sum only while picking up your phone from the retailer or the Reliance store. The Rs 1,500 you are paying will be refunded after 36 months returning the phone, so it is effectively free.
People who are booking the JioPhone right now will get the phone delivered between September 1 to September 4. And for the individuals who are waiting for the online bookings to open will obviously get the phone later. Reliance AGM had mentioned that the phones would get delivered in September with no particular date mentioned. Reliance aims to deliver 5 million units every week. We have already covered the exclusive recharge offers for the JioPhone that Reliance is offering.
JioPhone comes with 2.4 inches WQVGA display and 512 MB RAM. It is paired with a 4GB inbuilt storage which can be expanded using a microSD card reader. It comes with a 2MP shooter camera at the back, and a 2000 mAh battery and the phone supports 4G VoLTE.
It is not yet clear that the bookings are opened at all the retailers, or it will come in phases. If you are planning to buy this smartphone online, then wait for 24 September when its pre-booking will be opened only on the MyJio app.
