New Delhi: Reliance Jio is expected to launch a new 5G smartphone in India. A new 5G device has appeared on Geekbench and revealed its innards. It might be called Jio Phone 5G and it might launch in the budget segment.
The company’s last smartphone was the Jio Phone Next, which retails for under Rs 5,000 and has 4G connectivity. Now that 5G is slowly rolling out across India, the brand may introduce the Jio Phone 5G.
Jio Phone 5G has passed Geekbench certification and revealed key specifications
The smartphone with the model number LS1654QB5 has arrived on the Geekbench certification website (via MySmartPrice). The certification reveals that it is powered by a chipset codenamed Holi. Based on its clock frequency, it is believed to be a Snapdragon 480+ SoC.
It is an octa-core chipset clocked at a base frequency of 1.90 GHz. It has 4GB of RAM and runs on Android 12 OS. The device could have PragatiOS skin on top of Android 12. PragatiOS has local languages and some other UI features.
In terms of performance, the device scored 549 points in the single-core department and 1661 points in the multi-core department. These scores are decent considering the budget segment.
Other than that, there is no other information about the smartphone, but since it has passed Geekbench, the launch seems to be close. The smartphone might also go through more Indian certifications soon.
Jio has been tight-lipped about the phone, but as Jio True 5G is rapidly rolling out to multiple regions, we might see a 5G phone launch soon. If an estimate is to be made, it could launch next year.
It will go up against Infinix, Realme, Tecno, Redmi and Samsung phones at launch.
In related news, the company recently launched the Jiobook in India. It has an 11.6-inch compact display and Snapdragon 665 SoC. It is priced at Rs 15,799.
