The New Reliance “JIO” has quietly launched a new “JioFi 4G” device with an O-LED Display and an increased battery capacity. As mentioned, the price remains the same as the old variant. Reliance JIO released the JioFi hotspot for Rs. 2,899, but then slashed the price to Rs. 1,999 later. Even on the Reliance JioFi, data is free to use till December 31 under the Jio Welcome Offer. As of now, Reliance JIO has made no statement about what the plans will be post that date, though they are likely to be similar, if not better, than what’s being offered to other JIO SIM card holders.
“New Reliance Jio “JioFi” 4G Hotspot With OLED Display, 2600mAh Battery Launched at Only Rs. 1,999.”
“Reliance Jio SIMs and WiFi hotspots are hard to find at Reliance stores since the official launch of the Jio network on September 5, but Reliance appears to have silently introduced a new “JioFi 4G” device in the meanwhile.”
Unlike the JioFi-2, the new JioFi features an OLED display that is able to show information like – Wi-Fi connectivity, SIM card status, battery status, On/Off status and more. The device itself looks considerably bigger than the previous generation, thanks to the 2,600 mAh battery backup – compared to JioFi 2’s 2,300 mAh battery.
Twitter user Raghvendra shared pictures of the new Reliance Jio JioFi, and the images show a vague ‘Designed in India’ logo at the back of the device. One of the major downsides of the new JioFi 4G wireless hotspot is that is has reduced support from 31 devices earlier, to only up to 10 devices, though it should still be plenty for most people. The new Reliance JIO JioFi continues to sport a MicroSD card (up to 32GB).
Reliance “JioFi 4G” is useful if you want your entire house to go online, and is also portable, which means you can carry the network wherever you go. It comes with a rechargeable battery, and promises up to 5 hours of usage on a single charge.
“The Reliance JioFi 4G Wireless hotspot also allows you to use 4G LTE on your phone that doesn’t support 4G through the Jio Join app. The app allows you to place calls and send messages through the JioFi”
