Jio Phone Next arrived last year as Reliance Jio’s anticipated entry-level Android phone. However, many were disappointed that the Jio Phone Next was not as affordable as they had anticipated. To distribute the cost, so that customers do not have to pay an upfront amount, Jio announced bundled prepaid benefits, but this took the total cost to over Rs 14,000. As a result, sales of Reliance Jio’s high-stakes smartphones remained muted. Now available on Amazon Jio Phone Next is getting a big discount.
Before I tell you about the offer, let me get to know about Jio Phone Next in my own way.
Jio Phone Next is just like any other smartphone. But what makes it interesting is its software called PragatiOS, which Google has developed especially for this phone. It’s essentially a modified version of Android Go, optimizing the entire suite of Google apps for low-memory phones. For example, Jio Phone Next has up to 2GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of internal storage. The Jio Phone Next is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 processor while there is a 3500mAh battery to keep the lights on. There is a 13-megapixel camera on the back of Jio Phone Next, while an 8-megapixel front camera is available for selfies. It has a 5.45 inch HD resolution display.
Enough about the phone. Now offer. Amazon is selling Jio Phone Next at a discounted price of Rs 4,599. This is significantly less than the launch price of Rs 6,499, and dramatically less than the effective price if you buy the phone with the prepaid bundle. You can get additional discounts by using eligible cards, but the Rs 4,599 price tag isn’t bad either. However, this is still a little over the Rs 4,499 price you would pay under the exchange offer on Reliance Jio’s official store. Amazon’s current price may not be available for long, as the official website has listed the phone at the same price. In other words, it may not be an official price cut.
The price of Zero Phone Next up to Rs 4,599 on Amazon with zero terms first appeared on BGR India.
