JioPhone 2 will go on Flash Sale Starting From August 16th

Key specifications of Reliance Jio Phone 2

The JioPhone 2 is priced at Rs 2,999, which is double the price of the original JioPhone.

JioPhone 2 is powered with a 2.4 inch horizontal screen display, a full QWERTY keyboard and a four-way navigation pad. Therefore, with unlimited voice calls, SMS and data offerings, users will get an additional 2GB daily data for the same amount.

To start with, the JioPhone 2 will be available for bookings from tomorrow, i.e. The sale is valid till August 15 and takes place across all the Reliance Digital and My Jio stores in India. Some of these apps will be available from August 15. However, it later announced August 16 as sale date for Jio Phone 2.

The flash sale will be on Jio.com, and it will be interesting to see how the website holds up.

However, there is no clarification on the prepaid plan which enables the digital pack, but a few users have reported that the freebie is on the Rs 399 Jio prepaid plan. Reliance Jio had in July this year announced the launch of JioPhone 2.

Ben Stokes NOT GUILTY: England cricketer cleared of affray
England cricketer Ben Stokes walks out of Bristol Crown Court during a lunch break where he is on trial accused of affray . A third man, Ryan Hale, 27, was acquitted of the charge last Thursday on the directions of the judge, Peter Blair QC.

According to a recent IDC report, JioPhone remained the top vendor in the overall feature phone market in the second quarter.

If any of the customer looking to avail the JioPhone 2 under the JioPhone Monsoon Hungama offer, there's a big disappointment as Jio reiterated that only the first generation JioPhone is eligible for the Monsoon Hungama Offer it introduced last month.

Other bit that changes this time around is the availability of apps. "WhatsApp will also be available on JioPhone devices soon", the company said.

Both the feature phones run on Kai OS, but the Jio Phone 2 would come pre-installed with social media and instant messaging apps (Facebook, YouTube and WhatsApp), whereas the apps would be added to JioPhone sometime later as a software upgrade or side-loaded apps. The company did not reveal any reasons behind the delay though.
