Earlier this year in February, Jio had announced JioPhone 2021 offers under which users could get up to two years of recharge with a JioPhone device. The offers were priced at Rs 1499 and Rs 1999 respectively and gave 2GB data per month for 12 and 24 months respectively. This came with unlimited calls and a JioPhone device. During this time, Jio had also announced a prepaid plan priced at Rs 749 for existing Jio customers. This plan also comes with 2GB data per 28 days benefit, adding to 24GB data for 336 days or 12 months.
The Rs 749 plan gives 2GB high-speed data per month after which the speed is reduced to 64 Kbps. The plan also comes with 50 SMS per 28 days and unlimited calls with access to Jio apps including JioTV, JioCinema, JioNews, JioSecurity and JioCloud. The plan applies to JioPhone users.
Jio’s Rs 749 is thus the only long-term plan that comes along with existing JioPhone plans. It was first reported by 91 Mobiles. Earlier this month, Jio also introduced a new JioPhone plan worth Rs 75. The development comes shortly after the telco discontinued its entry-level Rs 39 and Rs 69 plans, and also the Buy-1, Get-1 offer on plans for JioPhone users. The new JioPhone Rs 75 plan offers 100MB data per day, unlimited voice calls to any network, 50SMS per day, and access to Jio apps such as JioTV, JioCinema, JioNews, JioSecurity, and JioCloud.
The plan also offers an extra 200MB of data at no additional cost. Other JioPhone prepaid plans available on the telco’s website are now priced at Rs 125, Rs 155, Rs 185, and Rs 749. The plans offer 0.1GB, 0.5GB, 1GB, 2GB daily data with 28 days validity except for the Rs 749 prepaid plan which has 336 days validity.
Jio was going to launch its Google-backed 4G smartphone JioPhone Next on September 10. However, the launch of the smartphone has been delayed until Diwali. Reliance, in a statement, confirmed the delay and added that the JioPhone Next rollout would commence around Diwali festive season. This means that the JioPhone Next can be expected to go on sale around early November. Built-in joint venture with Google, the JioPhone Next runs an optimised Android operating system with access to Google Play. JioPhone Next is not a successor of JioPhone and JioPhone 2.
