Now, you can purchase Reliance JioPhone on mobile wallet platform Mobikwik.

MobiKwik has now become the first wallet platform to sell Reliance JioPhone, which launched in August last year. MobiKwik Business Head Bikram Bir Singh said, “We are proud to become the first mobile wallet to sell Jio phones in India. Users can book their phone in four easy steps and avail great benefits as well.”

Reliance JioPhone is a feature phone with internet and VoLTE capabilities. The smart feature phone comes with a 2.4-inch QWVGA screen with 320 x 240 pixels resolution. It runs on KAI operating system and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor by Speadtrum coupled with 512MB of RAM.

Reliance JioPhone has 4GB of built-in storage and supports expandable storage up to 128GB via a microSD card. For photography, it sports a 2-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone can also record videos.

In terms of connectivity, Reliance JioPhone supports 4G VoLTE, single SIM (nano), Bluetooth 4.1, FM Radio, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS and microUSB 2.0 among others. A 2,000mAh battery powers the phone.

Reliance JioPhone also comes with a voice-based browser. Google in December last year announced it will be launching a special version of its digital assistant, Google Assistant, for Reliance JioPhone.
