Reliance Jio is reportedly working on an affordable laptop called “JioBook”. It is said that the new laptop will be based on a custom skin based on Android, which will be called JioOS. It can come with Jio apps. JioBook would also have 4G LTE support. A 2018 report also said that Jio is working in this area. The Mumbai-based telecom operator has already made a name for itself in the domestic market thanks to its affordable data and affordable JioPhone.

The XDA report says that Jio is collaborating with Chinese company Bluebank Communication Technology (Bluebank Communication Technology) to create JioBook. This company already makes JioPhone in its factories.

XDA Developers says it has gathered information from internal documents that JioBook has been in development since early September last year and plans to launch in the first half of 2021. The product validation test of this device is expected to begin in the middle of next month. An image of the JioBook prototype has also been shared, giving us a glimpse of the design.

The leaked image shows the laptop with Windows, but the device is not expected to run on Windows, so the final product design of the JioBook may be different.

JioBook Specifications (expected)

According to the specs, a report from XDA Developers suggests that the current prototype of the JioBook includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset and Snapdragon X12 4G modem with a screen with a resolution of 1,366×768 pixels. The laptop has been tested in several variants and one of these models has 2GB LPDDR4x RAM and 32GB eMMC storage. There is also another model, which is said to have 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64 GB of eMMC 5.1 storage.

JioBook can include features such as mini HDMI connector, dual band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It is also said to be equipped with a three-axis accelerometer and a Qualcomm audio chip.

Jio can also include its own apps like JioStore, JioMeet and JioPages in this laptop. In addition, it will reportedly also include Microsoft products such as Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Edge and Office.

At this time, no information has been shared about the price and availability of JioBook. However, the laptop is expected to be available in the budget segment later this year.
