Reliance Jio introduced the JioPhone Next last year, and now reports suggest that the company may already be on its way to launching a 5G-enabled JioPhone. The first leaks of the JioPhone 5G have also started to appear on the web. This is what we know so far.

The JioPhone 5G is also expected to come with a dual camera setup on the back. This could comprise a 13MP main sensor and a 2MP macro camera. Up front, the phone could offer an 8MP sensor, the report suggests.
The device is also expected to feature 32GB onboard storage along with support for expansion via a microSD card slot. For connectivity, the phone could come with 5G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS/ A-GPS/ NavIC, and a USB Type-C port for data transfer and charging. .
Reportedly, the software powering the device could be Android 11 (Go Edition), which could be inspired by JioPhone Next’s PragatiOS. The skin could come with features like always-on Google Assistant, instant translation via Google Lens, and other PraguetiOS features.
The report also suggests that the 5G JioPhone could be priced between Rs 9,000 and Rs 12,000 and could come with financing options with the phone, as seen with the JioPhone Next.
