jio Phone features and price
Introduced as “India ka smartphone”, the Jio Phone will be effectively free. Of course, it’s not quite as simple as that – you will have to make an upfront payment of Rs. 1,500 in order to get your hands on the Jio Phone. However, this sum is fully refundable, but you can claim the refund only after three years of purchasing the mobile phone.
Another interesting feature of the Jio Phone is NFC support – with this, users will be able to make payments from a linked bank account via UPI, or through POS machines in place of a debit card. This will be enabled later via a software update, although the hardware is already present. The phone also comes with an integrated panic button. great jio!nice!!
